4 Capabilities of Thermoplastic Molding
Thermoplastic molding is a dynamic process. Several people work together to get a concept from idea to final product. In addition, thermoplastic all have multiple applications and uses. To get a better sense of what we do here, let’s take a look at the 4 main capabilities of thermoplastic molding.
1. Coil Winding Bobbins
What is a coil winding bobbin? A coil winding bobbin is a plastic structure that separates and organizes long pieces of wire. The wire coils around the plastic piece and keeps the wire all wrapped up in an accessible way. You probably want your phone and laptop cords coiled and stored neatly. People who use lots of long wire material for work need to keep everything sorted neatly as well.
2. Terminal Pin Insertion
Terminal pin insertion is another product we produce at Plasti-Coil. In fact, it takes several specialized machines to make the millions of terminal pin insertions we make here each year. After the injection molding of the bobbins, we insert one of many types of quick-connect terminals. Or, you can also choose from many different wire sizes for pinning to tie off after the coil winding operation.
3. Insert & Over Molding of Thermoplastic
Other capabilities of thermoplastics are insert molding or over-molding. Plastic insert molding is a custom molding process where plastic is injected into the mold to encapsulate (either fully or partially) a part that was placed into the mold just prior to the injection of plastic. The inserts are generally metal or some higher temperature plastic.
