The Power of Injection Moulding: Transforming Recycled Plastic into Everyday Solutions

In today's competitive manufacturing landscape, businesses require partners who can deliver innovative solutions while prioritising sustainability. Hillbrush, a UK-based leader in injection moulding, exemplifies this approach. This blog explores how our expertise brings products like the HH4 Bag Hoop, a game-changer for waste management, to life.

The HH4: A Sustainable Solution Through Precision Injection Moulding

The HH4 Bag Hoop is a simple yet ingenious product. This hinged hoop tackles the common frustration of loose bin bags. Our black HH4 is made entirely from 100% recycled plastic and its robust design is a testament to Hillbrush's advanced injection moulding capabilities.

Here's what makes the HH4 stand out:

  • Recycled Material: The HH4 embodies Hillbrush's commitment to sustainability. By utilising recycled plastic pellets, we contribute to a circular economy and reduce reliance on virgin materials.
  • Precise Moulding: The snap together hinge of the HH4 needs precise and accurate mould design. Our expertise ensures a smooth, functional, and durable motion that opens and closes effortlessly due to the tight tolerances we work to.
  • Design for Manufacture (DFM): The HH4 showcases Hillbrush's DFM approach. The product's design, with its easy-grip handle, is optimised for efficient and cost-effective injection moulding.
  • Scalability: Whether you require low-volume production runs for a new product launch or high-volume manufacturing for established lines, Hillbrush's capabilities can accommodate your needs.
  • Sustainable Design: The HH4 goes beyond recycled materials. We've eliminated the metal pin from the hinge, allowing for full single-material recycling. Additionally, the improved design uses over 30% less raw material, making it more process efficient and sustainable.
  • Enhanced Strength: The re-engineered design provides superior grip strength on bags of varying thicknesses and weights, allowing you to carry more waste effectively.

The HH4 is just one example of how Hillbrush's injection moulding services can transform your vision into reality.
