  5. 5. What Is the Insert Molding Process? Insert Injection Molding Process Insert injection molding permits the use of inserts for metal or plastic components. First, the metal component is inserted into the mold. Then a resin is injected. Once the mold has been prepared, it is inserted into a mold cavity and allowed to harden.

  6. 6. How Are Parts Created with This Process? How Are Parts Formed? The barrel heats the polymer substance. Mold cavity is formed by heated, hardened polymer substance. Molds are machined with metal to form the foundation for the part being formed from the cavity. Metal insert is injected into cavity to form complete part. Copyright © 2016-2017 All rights reserved..
