Insert Molding

The process of insert molding begins when some form of insert is placed in the mold. The insert could be any type of fastener, nut, connector or object that historically required soldering. Plastic is injected into the mold, encasing the inserts and forming the part. By essentially embedding the insert into the plastic, you can save numerous production steps that traditionally would require adhesives, soldering, bonding or fastening in some other fashion.

Benefits of Insert Molding

Efficiencies are gained with insert molding in several areas. Insert molding reduces cycle time and labor costs by eliminating assembly steps. Accuracy of insert placement and additional flexibility for creating complex designs are also benefits of the insert molding process. By removing the need for fasteners and adhesives, insert molding allows for the production of lighter weight, smaller parts.

Why should you use insert molding? Strong, reliable, smaller components with accurate placement of fasteners or other inserts, reduced costs and cycle times make insert molding an ideal solution for serious production challenges including medical devices, electronics, automotive parts and numerous consumer products.

Other Uses for Insert Molding

The process of insert molding allows for flexibility, allowing designers to build a better mouse trap. One area that insert molding excels in is the placement of coloring or labeling of components vs. using stickers or a painting process. A film with the desired pattern, color, gauge read-out, etc. is placed into the mold, and the insert molding process ensures its accurate placement. The labels, colors, displays and other elements of the film are no longer subject to the wear process from touching, cleaning or activating (pressing buttons, etc.), all thanks to insert molding.
