Insert Molding

Insert Molding: Insert molding allows a metal insert to be embedded in a part in one operation for improved product structure and increased strength. One of the major benefits from insert molding includes combining components in order to improve product functionality and ease of assembly while reducing costs. We develop systems that monitor insert orientation and specific process parameters to insure all parts meet customer specifications

Over Molding

Over molding utilizes two separate molds on conventional presses to over mold one part to another for unique visual or ergonomic appeal such as handles.

Two-Shot Molding

In this process, polymers from two injection units are applied through independent nozzles on one press to produce pieces like soft-touch handles or two-toned translucent parts.
