OVERMOLDING IN THE MEDICAL DEVICE INDUSTRY

OVERMOLDING IN THE MEDICAL DEVICE INDUSTRY

Creating medical devices for a wide variety of applications often requires the use of a manufacturing method that allows you to insert a component into the molded part. Doing so offers several benefits such as improved sanitation, reduced risk of intellectual property theft, and increased part strength. Reaction injection molding is one of the most effective manufacturing methods for encapsulating materials without harming sensitive components often included in medical devices.
