The process of over molding is very similar in some ways. Over molding is a secondary injection mold
ing process goes over the one injected molded piece.
The way of over molding can be applied in reach different plastic surface on a plastic utensil or consumer product. Injection molded the original part first, then poured the over molding material on top/surround secondarily. That’s why the name of over molding.
The idea in insert molding is that one or even several machining
pieces (typically in metal) to fit inside a product design
, as a functional component.
The original manufactured part or “insert” will be located firmly into the injection mold, the plastic mold
ing flows around the original piece to encapsulate or connect with it as design. The insert will be a component after molding
. And the finished product is composed of that original piece, or multiple pieces, precision molded into the larger plastic product.
