What is Insert Molding?
Insert molding is a process whereby plastic is injected into a mold that contains a pre-placed insert or part. These inserts can include metal stampings, filtration materials, and electromechanical parts. The inserts are carefully place within a custom-made mold, and then molten plastic is injected into the mold. Once the plastic has cooled, the mold is opened and the components are removed, now surrounded by a single molded plastic piece.
Advantages of Insert Plastic Molding
Insert molding has become widely-utilized because of the many advantages it delivers to parts manufacturers. Some of these advantages include:
Lowers cost. Insert molding lowers costs across the board. Both labor and assembly costs can be reduced through an efficient plastic molding process.
Lighter, smaller products. Insert molding eliminates the need for bulky connectors or fasteners, producing products that are lighter and smaller.
Reliability. Tightly secured in plastic, a component experiences fewer problems with wear-and-tear issues such as misalignment or part loosening. The plastic also offers improved resilience to other factors such as vibration or shock.
Flexibility. Insert molding allows for increased design flexibility, creating an opportunity for practically unlimited configurations.
