Overmolding Service

Proto Labs, Maple Plain, MN, has launched an overmolding service. Product designers and engineers use overmolding to improve grip and durability, dampen vibration, and add two-color aesthetics to parts. Overmolded parts go through a multi-step process that results in common products like tool handles, personal care products, medical devices and more. The overmolding process uses engineering-grade thermoplastics and liquid silicone rubber materials to create overmolded prototypes and end-use production parts.
