The overmolding of inserts opens up countless application possibilities. Whether overmolding metal components, hard plastic components or even electronic components. It not only enables the combination of different plastics with different properties, colors or textures, but also the integration of additional functions in a single component. These can be seals, dampers, hinges, handles, pinch valves or countless other components. Thanks to Torson Injex's additive tooling process, prototypes can be produced economically and quickly. These prototypes help to test the functionality of the component quickly and in the correct materials. In this way, necessary design changes are recognized early in the development process and iterations in the subsequent steel tool can be avoided.

The Autodest sensor is used in combination with a Rotavapor® from Büchi in industrial environments for demanding distillation tasks. The sensor determines the optimal distillation parameters and regulates the vacuum according to the measured inlet and return cooling temperatures and the steam temperature. The Autodest sensor combines three temperature sensors in one product. A PT-100 temperature sensor is located in the glass tube at the top. In addition, there are two PT-1000 sensors, which sit on two stainless steel tubes and determine the flow temperatures of the respective media. The communication of the sensor is done by a splitted Mini-DIN 8 pin connector with one male and one female side. This can be easily mounted between an existing socket and the associated connector plug.
Sensitive electrodes for measuring ph values or ammonia concentrations require sophisticated connectors to ensure flawless signal transmission.
Temperature sensors can be connected directly to the cable and then overmolded.
Mechanical components such as threaded inserts can be overmolded without any problems.
Overmolding of electronics and printed circuit boards can also be considered multicomponent injection molding. Find out more Electronics and overmolding.
