Rapid manufacturing allows for complex injection molding techniques with overmolding and insert molding processes. In our webinar, see how these multi-material processes work, learn about the key design considerations for prototyping and low-volume production, and examine the material selection available.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- Key design considerations for overmolding and insert molding
- Materials that play well together and ones to avoid for overmolding
- What types of inserts can be used for insert molding
- Alternative overmolding options such as industrial 3D printing
