Overmolding Services

Sometimes, one needs to put two pieces together to make the final product when it comes to molding. When these two pieces are made of plastic, overmolding is the best way to go about it. The two pieces will be the substrate and the overmold. The substrate is put in first then the overmold goes over that.

To ensure everything cures well, the substrate needs to be cured fits before anything else. That way, the overmold will not affect its shape or form. There is no specific way to layer the two materials as long as you let the substrate cure before adding the overmold.

Overmolding is done in different forms, and they all depend on the kind of procedure being carried out. Before you get into the overmolding process, you must take your time and familiarize yourself with the different procedures. That way, you can make sense of what needs to be done and how to go about it.

Overmolding is an answer to all the manufacturers who want to create a final piece with two different plastics. It has been around for a while and will keep being used for time immemorial. The perks it comes with it make it stand out from the crowd.

Why Choose All Win MFG for Overmolding?

• It helps increase adhesion between materials. They tend to hold better together and are seamless at the joined parts. The parts will hold together for longer than any other method used.
• It gives a more compact design. One cannot easily tell where one plastic bit ends and where the other starts. The seamless attribute goes a long way to enhance the piece's design.
• Low production cost. The entire process is automated, which racks in more product than one would when using human labor
• It produces insulation. The pieces made are the perfect insulator which is a huge plus for most people.

Injection Molding FAQs

  • What are the steps to get injection molded parts?

    Many people are at a loss when figuring out how to carry out injection molding. The good thing is that the method is pretty simple. Here is how you will go about the process:
    • The mold is prepped and closed for the process to begin.
    • Molten plastics get fed into the closed-up mold using the injection. Outlets will ensure the steam does not stay in the mold as the plastic gets molded.
    • The molten plastic is allowed to cool down.
    • Once the plastic cools, the mold is opened up, and the pieces are ejected, ready for examination, packaging, and shipping.

  • What type of parts are suitable for metal injection molding process?

    Injection molding can be used to make so many parts. All you need to do is figure out what bits and pieces in the market can be made using the molds that the molders come in. One of the most recognized parts made from injection molding has got to be the Lego bricks. Since they are so small, they need a mold that can efficiently create them.
    Since these pieces are also so intricate, they should all be made in a way where they fit perfectly with one another. Even though Legos are just an example, injection molds are used in companies that need accuracy with plastic materials and pieces.

  • What industries use plastic injection molding?

    Many industries depend on plastic to be able to work well. It is for this reason that more people are embracing this process. Here are the industries that use plastic injection molding:
    • Pharmaceuticals create droppers and syringes since they need to be made in very specific and accurate sizes for them to work.
    • Food industries to create storage containers and other plastics that are BPA-free.
    • The medical industry to create different plastic equipment used when examining patients.
    • Transportation to create spare parts and nay customizable parts for different vehicles. They make car repairs much cheaper and easier.
    • Building and construction to create handles for tools that might be slippery

  • What is the difference between molding and printing?

    Even though printing and molding all use plastics to create new materials, they slightly differ based on how these two methods work. Printing is an additive process and needs a 3D image created to be used as a reference for when the molding takes place. Without the proper 3D image, the printer will not produce anything.
    On the other hand, molding needs hot plastic material fed into already made mold so that it can cool down and form the object being made. While we both end up with a product, the two will be made differently.

  • What is injection molding?

    Injection molding is the process of feeding heated polymer or plastic through a barrel onto an already shaped model to create a product. It is mostly used when one needs accuracy and efficiency in their work. Before the process starts, there have to be molds created that will help ensure the right shape is achieved since molds are made beforehand, and the finished product is similar in size and design, which is what you want. The process has been embraced as the best method for creating new items on a large scale since it is very affordable compared to other production methods in the market.
