Combining Materials through Molding Efficiency
Overmolding and Insert Molding are 2 more areas where Dymotek shines. Both insert molding and overmolding allow us to mold plastics into or around existing or pre-molded items. This can include combining insert molding or overmolding using parts made of the same material—or different materials that include aluminum, brass, steel, stainless steel, copper, and more.
Dymotek’s insert molding – delivering more for less
Insert Molding from Dymotek expands plastic capabilities and can reduce final product cost by limiting the amount of costly metal needed to create a part. With insert molding, we inject the selected molding material into a cavity which contains an “insert piece” or pieces, resulting is a single part with the insert or inserts encapsulated by the material. This is especially beneficial for the assembly of discrete parts, often eliminating the need for soldering, fasteners, connectors, or adhesives.
Dymotek’s overmolding – bonding different materials through the molding process
Overmolding from Dymotek involves the precise plastic injection molding of one material over a second material. For over-molding success, knowledge of material compatibility is crucial. Dymotek’s extensive expertise in this field helps assure your end part will have the strong end-application bond and performance that your program success demands.
Insert molding and overmolding benefits from Dymotek include:
- Reduced Assembly Time and Cost
- Reduced Part Size and Weight
- Increased Completed-Part Accuracy and Performance Reliability
- Expanded Part Design Flexibility
