Insert molding is the manufacturing process in which a resin is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a preconfigured mold cavity around a pre-placed insert where it cools and hardens. Inserts can be made of metals or different types of plastics which can help strengthen components and reduce the cost of production and waste.
Plainfield Precision is ready to improve your manufacturing process.
What are the benefits of insert molding?
1. High production rates
Insert molding machines increase cycle repeatability, which produce high quality products at a faster rate.
2. Repeatable high tolerances
3. Reduced scrap
With reduced material consumption comes a decrease in product price.
4. Wider range of usable materials
Insert molding gives more freedom in the design stage.
5. Minimal assembly after molding
Insert molding reduces product price and produces a faster market time.
6. Higher strength and durability
Manually assembled components do not have the potency of insert molded products.
7. Improved appearance
Insert molding allows a more consistent look resulting in higher added value.
8. Increased Flexibility
Shapes that would otherwise be difficult to make can now be achieved with Insert molding.
