Multi-component molding allows for the production of complex parts not possible in single shot molding, such as the production of multi-colored and multi-resin parts and assemblies, as well as movable segments or components. Using one mold, one press, and no skilled technicians, the press injects the first material, the mold turns the cavity internally, and a second material is introduced from the main injection press.
Benefits of Multi-Component Molding
Lower Piece Price
•Decreased tooling cost- One mold replaces the need for two separate molds.
•Reduced assembly and labor costs - Elimination of post-molding assemblies such as snap-fits, ultrasonic welding, adhesive, screws, or bolts. And also overmolding.
Increased Design Flexibility
Capable of producing a more complex component in a single mold. Increased flexibility in design and function.
Each part is tightly secured in thermoplastic so an insert molded component prevents part loosening, misalignment, improper terminations, and other concerns.
