WHAT IS INSERT MOULDING?

Insert moulding is the process of molding thermoplastic material around a preformed component (an insert) in order to create a finished part that incorporates multiple materials. The inserts are typically metal parts that are used to reinforce the mechanical properties of the plastic part.
