Two Shot Molding
Two shot molding is designed to mold and “over-mold” within a single cycle. In the first step, material is molded into a basic shape. Then the second material is injected into the remaining open spaces, often providing a different color and texture.
Two shot molding provides a low cost, performance driven solution for high volume programs traditionally supported by plastic on plastic insert molding. Two shot molding eliminates work in process inventory and direct labor content, while improving process reliability and consistency.
Plainfield Precision’s range of two-shot molded products includes functional components such as covers with integrated gaskets, motors, as well as functional cosmetic parts such as buttons and knobs that incorporate complex graphics for reverse illuminated switches.
Due to the unique part design requirements needed for the two shot molding process, Plainfield Precision’s engineering resources are available early in the development cycle to advise our customers on incorporating two shot molding design requirements into their concepts.
