Make Strong, Functional Prototypes and Production Parts

Insert Molding Service

Insert Molding is the manufacturing process of overmolding a preformed part (typically metal) with a heated thermoplastic resin to produce a single unit. Molding inserts can be simple items such as rods, thread, or a knife blade, but they can also be complex.

Benefits of Insert Molding

Insert Molding is an injection molding process that works especially well for parts that have threaded holes. It can also help you create better wheels, pulleys, fan blades, and other similar parts. Done correctly, insert molding can help:

  • Eliminate assembly: You can make insert molded parts all at once instead of having to do assembly after the fact.
  • Reduce costs: Insert molding costs more than standard injection molding, but the costs are usually offset by the fact that you no longer need to do post-assembly.
  • Lower the size and weight of the part: A plastic part with a metal insert is generally lighter than an all-metal part.
  • Improve reliability: Metal mold inserts will guarantee the function of threads and mitigate wear and tear over the part’s life.
  • Improve part strength: Because it’s a “one-shot” process, it can produce stronger parts than overmolding and other processes.

About Insert Molding

There are many substrates used in insert molding, but the most popular is brass threaded inserts and bushing. In addition, many companies make custom inserts that can be insert molded. It is really left up to the imagination when deciding what type of inserts can be over molded.

The benefit to insert molding is that parts can be mass produced faster than machining whole parts out of metal. Even though insert molding adds to the cycle time (typically 15 seconds per insert) it is still much faster than cnc machining a part from a solid block. Furthermore, by insert molding metals where necessary and replacing the rest of the part with plastic will in turn reduce the overall weight of the part.

Did you know you can insert mold plastic parts? This process is called over molding and it lends itself when you need two or more different materials in the same part.
