What is Insert Molding?
Insert molding is widely used because there are so many applications and It eliminates the need for running any secondary operations such as soldering, welding, Connecting or bonding,which can bring down significant costs.
Types of Inserts
The insert materials can be brass, aluminum, steel, glass, etc. among them, brass is the most popular one because it's Anti-rust, corrosion resistant, easy processing and affordable.
Based on the insert molding production quantity,there are 2 types insert operations involved. The manual one is mainly used for low-volume productions,while the automatic one will utilize robots to insert which is more reliable for high-volume production.
Below are some often used inserts:
Overmolding & Advantages
Insert Molding vs. Overmolding
2. insert molding is often bounded by metals, like brass, steel, or stainless steel. it means to adds metal parts to injection molded parts. while overmolding is 2 times injection molding,it's combined by 2 types of plastics.

◆ What inudstries use injection molding?
Injection molding widely used in many industries, like medical, water treatment, household products, consumer electronics, electrical tools and auto parts. The material includes PP, PE, POM, PS, PA66, PTFE, PSU, ABS, PA + Fiber Glass,etc.
◆ What is the mold life?
It depends on what mold steel you will choose from, generally speaking, for a mold made from P20, mold life 100,000shots is not a problem.
◆ Q1.Can I change the design a little bit after receiving samples?
it depends on how big is the change, for small ones we can fix easily by welding or removing materials. But if it’s about mold structure, it’ll be hard and we can discuss the details later.
◆ Q2:Can you create molds based on our samples?
Yes, our engineering can make measurements from your samples to make drawings and then confirm with you before moving forward.
◆ Q3: Is it possible to know how are my products going on without visiting your company?
Yes sure, it’s a must we have to update you each progress without your visiting.We will offer a detailed production schedule and send weekly reports with digital pictures and videos which show the machining progress.
The first thing we do is meeting with our clients and talk through their goals on a future project.
During this meeting, feel free to communicate your ideas and ask lots of questions.
