Overmoulding Applications

Overmoulding across the industries

Low pressure overmoulding technology was initially used in the automotive industry to waterproof connectors and to add effective strain relief for wires and cables, but nowadays the applications of this technology have expanded rapidly. Overmoulding is now used to provide electronics encapsulation across a wide range of industries, from consumer and automotive sectors, to the military and medical industry.

We have an extensive array of experience in fulfilling an overmoulding brief to meet specific industry requirements – even the most complex projects are in capable hands with us.

Example 1

Control Electronics for Automotive Sensor moulded with Macromelt OM6208S

It is the low pressures applied during the moulding process that prevent damage to the electronics, protecting the elements from external influences such as moisture and mechanical stressing.

Example 2

Complex PCB assembly overmoulded with Macromelt OM6208

Complete overmoulding of the PCB assembly provides IP67 protection. This particular project was moulded in a two stage process for a high quality finish, creating a durable product that lasts.

Example 3

Grommet inserted-moulded with Macromelt OM638

One of the strengths of the moulding process is the possibility of moulding grommets in the places where they are needed in any shape or size. The moulding can also include strain relief.
