Similar to Insert Molding, the overmolding process involves thermoplastic resin being molded over or around another material to form one solid component. Overmolding optimizes the production process of components with complex designs, overloaded assemblies, detailed cosmetic aspects, and improves bonding between the two resins.
The surgical stapling device to the left involves overmold, which provides an improved
ergonomic comfort and feel to the user.
Soft, non-slip grips make products
comfortable and easier to handle, while
maintaining durability and functionality.
At PMM we can overmold multiple colors
and resin to achieve comfort and function.
Benefits of Overmolding
Cost effective solutions from reduced or eliminated secondary operations
Repeatability and Reliability
Added ergonomic appeal, such as knobs and handles for soft touch.
Product protection such as boots or gaskets, typical with instrumentation or devices.
Material compatibility is key in the overmolding process. Please look to our team’s knowledge and expertise with overmolding multiple materials to aid in your products success.
