Barbed Hose Connectors

Automotive barbed hose connectors have several manufacturing complexities that requires an experienced plastic injection molder to meet tight OEM

specs.  Residual stresses can warp round parts (like hose connectors) after they are released from the mold, which is why early recognition of complicated connector designs is crucial!

Our Process

Our process revolves around engineering and manufacturing expertise based your product’s application and performance requirements.

This is the most critical aspect for your project.  Our engineers will review with you your design’s wall thicknesses, sharp transitions, knife edges, tolerances & technical specs, gate locations, and materials in order to ensure we are able to manufacture the connectors to what you need.

Hopefully most recommended design tweaks can be accommodated.  If not, an experienced injection molding partner can overcome many challenges through tool design.

Quality tool engineers can balance melt flow and reduce cycle times with hot runner systems, increase cooling capacity with copper cores and forced air flows, and produce precise round parts with out-of-round tools (what??).  Yes, you read that correctly.

Depending on the part design, material flow, and residual stresses, sometimes it takes an out-of-round tool to produce precision round parts like fluid connectors.

We pride ourselves on 100% on-time delivery here at Ammex Plastics. Once parts approved and meet spec, we’ll move into production.

We have established a comprehensive quality management system which will allow our company to meet all the requirements of IATF 16949:2016. Our quality of management system concentrates on providing:

  • Defect-free products and services to our customers
  • 100% on-time delivery

Why Ammex Plastics

Ammex Plastics has been tooling up and supplying hose connectors for 20 years, has shipped millions of parts, and runs a PPM rate of <2.

If getting the hose connector done right is your primary driver, then make sure you choose the right molding supplier. If they aren’t asking you lots of questions about wall thicknesses, sharp transitions, knife edges, tolerances & technical specs, gate locations, and materials, then the probably are not doing an in-depth part feasibility up front
