Compression limiters meet growing global demand
31 March 2023
As the speed of technology and trends in consumer behaviour accelerate, compression limiters have been developed to meet worldwide growth across multi-sector manufacturing of products using plastics, particularly in the EV sector.
Compression limiters reduce the stress that’s generated by traditional threaded fasteners. Worldwide demand has mainly been driven by the automotive sector, and applications in the energy and general industrial sectors, where high-load bearing plastic components are used.
Growth in automotive component demand
Compression limiters are used extensively in composites and plastic mouldings, as through holes help reduce the stress generated by conventional fasteners. These non-threaded inserts are commonly used in applications where a compressive load is applied to a plastic assembly, to prevent the integrity of the plastic from being compromised.
As technological advances continue, so does the need continually to develop the primary components that make up an electric vehicle.
