Insert molding is a process whereby a part— often a metal stamped part— is subjected to the injection of thermoplastic around it to create a new, discrete component. Interplex is a renowned leader in insert molding, and has expertise in reel-to-reel, rotary and shuttle insert molding technology.
With an expansive global footprint and comprehensive suite of capabilities, we can integrate molding processes with our in-house precision metal stamping and electroplating capabilities. This allows us to offer customers a comprehensive solution for their end application needs, all while reducing total acquisition costs and improving quality by eliminating potential defects between processes.
Our design and manufacturing expertise in insert molded solutions along with application expertise in electronic packaging and connector technology enables us to develop, design and deploy turnkey solutions to fulfil our customers’ electronic packaging needs.
