Unlike other “machine-for-hire” plastics shops, Revere Plastics Systems acts as a trusted partner for even the most complicated of plastics production. Our experts know how to engineer multi shot molding pieces that maximize precision, production time and bottom line savings.
What Is Multi-Shot Molding?
Like the name says, multi shot molding is a process that requires a base layer of plastic that’s fully formed when a second, substrate layer is formed around it. This requires precise timing to make certain that the base layer is cool enough to inject new material around it, but does not waste cooling time, which leads to slow production and higher costs.
When Is It Most Useful?
- For parts that combine different types of plastics, multi-shot molding can drive big savings by skipping assembly, and producing a more wholly-formed product.
- For soft-touch materials, multi-shot molding can save time and drive additional cost savings.
