Proto Labs Inc. (Maple Plain, MN) has expanded its rapid injection molding offerings with the launch of its new overmolding process. The company claims this new capability can produce 25 to 10,000+ custom overmolded parts in 15 days or less. Proto Labs’ overmolding process uses engineering-grade thermoplastics and liquid silicone rubber materials to create prototypes and end-use production parts. The company says it is focused on accelerating product development, and the introduction of rapid overmolding offers designers and developers a tool to make high-quality prototype or low-volume production parts as quickly as possible. Overmolded parts go through a multi-step process, which results in common products like tool handles, medical devices and more. For more information, visit https://www.protolabs.com/.
