Introduction to Moldex3D

Moldex3D is a very powerful technology that analyses your injection mold part design and simulates mold flow to help predict with a high degree of accuracy how your mold parts will develop in that mold. It helps to identify potential problem areas early so you can correct your injection mold design miles before you even [...]

Overmolding design issues that are easy to ignore

Overmolding is an injection molding process where you cast a layer of resin (usually a rubber-like plastic known as TPE) over an already molded or machined material to give it properties it doesn’t singlehandedly possess. Although this process is cost-effective and helps to provide excellent adhesion between materials, it requires proper planning. For example, the [...]

You can consider outsourcing injection molding

The appeal of injection molding lies, in large part, because of its versatility and relative accessibility when compared with other manufacturing processes. This accessibility — which can sometimes be mistaken for ease of production — can serve to make in-house injection molding seem overly appealing — perhaps more than it should. In reality, in-house production [...]
