Insert Molded Components

Insert molding is a special injection molding process where thermoplastic materials are tightly molded around another component such as pre-formed plastic or metal insert, to form a single viable product.

At Unisteel, we have extensive experience designing tools for insert molding. With mold design being an important factor in this process, our engineers use the latest in CAD and machining software packages to design and build injection molding tooling and fixtures.

Features & Benefits

  • Increased design flexibility as insert molding allows for unlimited configurations
  • Minimal scrap loss
  • Increased reliability as the tightly-bonded insert molded component prevents part loosening and misalignment etc
  • Reduced need for post-mold operation


Applications

  • Illuminated logos for consumer electronics
  • Sensor pads for navigational products
