Let our custom injection molding engineers help you design the injection molded
parts you need. We specialize in tough custom
molding jobs where the design, choice of plastic, mold building and flow
analysis are critical to production.
Our expertise includes:
- Engineered thermoplastic materials
- Critical tolerance engineering components
- Standard consumer commodity products
- Plastic molding design
(Five Classes of Injection Mold)
- Parts prototyping
In this case, molds are made with aluminum and are
constructed in the least expensive method. These molds are not intended for
production although many hundreds of parts may be produced. The advantage here,
is material selected for production parts can be used in the prototype mold. The
prototype mold very closely resembles the production mold and parts can be fully
tested for physical, thermal or electrical properties.
The result of insert molding is a single molded
plastic piece with an insert surrounded by the plastic. Inserts can be made of
metals or different types of plastic.
Insert molding expands the
capabilities of plastic and can help reduce the cost of products by limiting the
amount of costly metals needed to manufacture products. Below are some examples
of insert molding.
