You need to make a widget combined with a joined set of parts for your particular industry, whether it is medical, automotive, electrical, telecommunications, or for consumer use. In fact, you need to make a lot of your particular widget. How can you make them all uniformly, efficiently, and cost-effectively? Look for an insert molding solution specialty producer.
What Exactly is Insert Molding?
It is the process that allows the coordinated combination of multiple aspects of a single finished good or product. What normally would have taken multiple people multiple steps to accomplish with messy adhesives or complicated soldering processes is now completed in a single step through the introduction of plastic resin used to hold and join the separate pieces of the part. In other words, individual components are precisely placed into the mold, and it is the resin injected around them that holds them still together and bonds.
What are the Reasons to use Insert Molding Processes?
The benefits of insert molding are, simply, time, efficiency, cost, and uniformity. To the element of time, the process avoids the necessity of extended drying times as would be required with traditional adhesives. From an efficiency standpoint, the single-step processes effectuated with insert molding are a better use of time and resources. The costs associated with the workforce and the resource production needs also are dramatically reduced. Because of the ability to join multiple parts together in a single stage, and because multiple inserts can be made simultaneously, uniformity is also maximized.
With insert molding processes, the finished products are lighter because no metals or other products are required to be added other than the resin. They are stronger because they provide an improved measure of consistency throughout the product, rendering it less likely that any single component will have problems or experience failure. Additionally because it is created as a single unit, it is less likely to have problems if dropped or become loosened or maladjusted.
Because it is the manufacturer who is going to be working on individual projects, one critical point to take note of is the ability in import molding to customize the design in a variety of ways and thus provide customers with the exact widget they require.
