Multiple Shot Mould-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.

Mould design is including DFM, Mould Flow Analysis, 2D Mould Layout and 3D Mould Drawing. It is part lay out, part line making, gate design, runner design, gating way, ejection method, cooling layout, etc.
Mould making is based on mould design and purchase mould base, steel and component by machined by CNC, EDM, Lathe, Gun Drill and Milling etc., make mould fitting and mould trial in the end. To see the idea into real by mass production.
