Reduce Secondary Operations with Insert Molding
Saving time and saving money are vital keys to growing your business and your profits. PTI’s insert molding does both. This method is a precision molding process that feeds resin into a heated barrel where it is then mixed and injected into a mold cavity that features a pre-placed insert where the resin cools and hardens.
Insert molding streamlines production and helps eliminate the need for additional secondary operations, making it faster and cheaper to produce a finished complex product.
Some additional advantages of insert molding:
- Consistency: Inserts add part consistency by eliminating operator error.
- Stability: Inserts increase part functionality, stability and strength.
- Reduce size & weight: With the combination of the strength of the polymer and the metal insert, the insert molding process produces a smaller and lighter component.
- Design flexibility: Insert molding offers industrial designers a host of options.
