Reducing Project Risk.
Even the simplest injection molded part can be a risky undertaking for those without the experience. Tooling can be expensive and a bad tool design can lead to a huge unforeseen failure months down the road. The most important thing you can do is to mitigate the risks at the beginning of the project in
Ultrasonic Welding of Plastic Assemblies
Thermoplastics are used in the vast majority of products manufactured today. Many of these products utilize screws, pins, and threaded inserts for fastening and joining; while these methods might be the best choice for assemblies requiring serviceability, there may be more cost effective methods of assembly for those that don’t. In some cases we can
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
