Threads, inserts and overmolding

Insert molding

Threads in your product can be molded directly or applied directly in the plastic via post-processing. Post process threading is available for our rapid service.

  • Threaded inserts

  • Compression limiters

  • Bushings

  • Leads

Threaded inserts

Press-in and thread-in threaded inserts are available for Rapid and on-demand manufacturing​. Sizes for rapid: M3 M4 M5 M6

Overmolding

Multiple materials in 1 product can be realized with overholding, where first the product is made with 1 material, ​then inserted in a second mold and overmolded with the second material.

Finishing options

Molded offers different kind of plastic surface finishes with use of textures applied directly to the mold surface and transferred to the parts during the injection molding process.

Therefore, surface finishes that require more processing time are only supported via our on-demand manufacturing service as depicted below

  • Rapid manufacturing

  • On-demand manufacturing

  • As machined – visible machining marks on all surfaces

  • Technical smooth – most toolmarks removed

  • Rough textured – bead blast heavy (SPI D3)

  • Satin textured – bead blast light (SPI D1)

  • Smooth matte finish – 600 grit stone (SPI C1)

  • Semi gloss finish – 600 grit paper (SPI B1)

  • High gloss polish – diamond polish for high gloss and transparant parts

Besides surface finishes, Molded provides also the following services to your end product:

Product laser marking

Pad printing (coming soon)

Basic assembly
