Multiple Shot Mold-Over Molding
Overmolding is the an injection molding process using two separate molds of which you mold one material over another to create or touch appeal such as a handle or knob.
As it can be seen above overmolding is a highly useful process in which one can combine two different molds for either appearance reasons or durability. By overmolding products such as plastic materials, these materials can be formed into one solid mold which can be seen in many cases in the consumer market today. Without the overmolding process the items and consumer parts that we use everyday such as cell phones, toasters, PDA’s, automobiles and thousands of other parts would not exist. The overmolding process is constantly changing and the processes and components that are being used are constantly being tweaked to extend performance, durability, and life cycle.
