    Design Considerations For Overmolding

    Overmolding is the process of injection molding a component using two different materials. Typically a rigid material is overmolded with a soft thermoplastic elastomer(TPE). There are many different reasons why you may choose to overmold, these reasons include: styling, weatherproofing or ergonomics. There is no doubt that you have seen parts that have been produced

    3D Printed Cavities to Produce Prototype Samples

    Plastics Plus Technology Inc, has worked closely with one of our partners to develop 3d printed mold cavities for evaluating new injection molded part designs. With the help of our tool room PPT was able to configure a retired mud mold to accept 3d printed cores and cavities for use in prototype development. The 3d

    Going Green with Biodegradable materials

    The world is producing more and more plastic waste everyday and it is important that designers take into account how their products will be discarded once they reach end of life. Traditional resin materials do not break down because bacteria do not have the capacity to break down the chemical bonds that the resin compounds
