Overmolding Insert molding in China
Plastic molding process:
The overmolding is one of China’s plastic molding processing methods. With plastic material or parison as raw material. make its external force by heating and a method of the shape of the products needed.
Overmolding is the piece, pipe, plate, such as plastic material, heating in a kind of rubber state, deformation by an external force. And moulding for all kinds of simple shapes. Then through cooling stereotypes and products. Over-molding including the hollow blow molding. Thermoforming, stretching film-forming method. such as only applies to thermoplastic plastic molding. Chinese over-molding is in molding on the basis of a method.
Mainly includes the following several forming methods:
Hot forming is a thermoplastic plastic sheet that is heated to softening, the gas pressure, liquid pressure. Or mechanical pressure, using the appropriate tooling. Or jig and make its products a molding method. The plastic thermoforming method is many, generally can be divided into:
Injection Molding using a single-mode (male die and female die) or to Die. Using plus mechanical pressure or weight, to make all kinds of products from the sheet forming method. It is different from processing molding. This method is suitable for all thermoplastics.
Differential pressure molding using single-mode (male Die and female Die) or to Die. Also don’t have to Die. In the gas under the action of pressure difference. Make the heating to soft plastic sheets with mould surface. Cooling is made after forming methods of various kinds of products. It can be divided into vacuum forming and differential pressure molding.
Thermoforming is especially suitable for thin walls, the large surface area of the manufacturing of the product. The commonly used plastic varieties have various types of polystyrene, organic glass, PVC, ABS, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyamide, polycarbonate, polyethylene terephthalate, etc.
Thermoforming equipment including clamping system, heating system, vacuum. And compressed air system and forming mould, etc.
To make molecular reorientation of thermoplastic film or plate, etc. Especially above the glass transition temperature of the bidirectional tensile process. Stretch orientation between the glass transition temperature and the melting point of the polymer. After directional tensile and rapid cooling to room temperature, the film or monofilament. The drawing direction has a lot to improve mechanical properties.
Suitable for directional stretching of the polymer is polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate. Polyvinylidene chloride, poly (methyl methacrylate, polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, and some of the styrene copolymer.
Overmolding Insert molding in China: Insert Molding
Insert Molding is a thermoplastic material or stock under pressure for products with mold the molding method. In the plastic molding process of molten (softening) under temperature (below the melting point at least 10-20 ℃). Solid-phase forming. Including plastic of non-crystalline class above the glass transition temperature. A melting point below the high elastic area processing is often called thermoforming. And below the glass transition temperature is called cold forming or room temperature molding processing. Also often called cold working methods or room temperature plasticity of plastic processing.
The method has the following advantages: a short production cycle. Improve the toughness and strength of products. Simple equipment can produce large and super large products. Cost reduction. The defect is: hard to produce complex shapes. The precision of products. It is difficult to control the production process. The products are easy to be out of shape, craze.
Solid-phase forming includes sheet roll, deep drawing or sheet stamping, hydraulic forming, extrusion, cold stamping, roll forming, etc.
