The insert injection molding makes it possible to combine plastic with components made from other materials. In most cases, these are metal inserts. The inserts are usually completely encapsulated in plastic. Thus we can attain a stable connection and save on subsequent assembly steps. The inserts can be inserted either manually or fully automatically, depending on the quantity and application. Our largest “insert” has a mass of 14 kg.
In the case of the outsert technology, the insert has a larger volume, respectively a larger surface area, than the plastic. Here, the plastic is applied onto the insert. We produce, for instance, sheets measuring 700 x 400 mm, on which plastic functional parts are injected, all fully automatically.
