Cast urethane over-molded mask

Designs that incorporate grips, soft touch surfaces or other features for compatibility with manual use (or when incorporating inserts directly into a part), traditionally use over-mold manufacturing via injection molding. This form of manufacturing typically requires larger volumes to account for traditional two-shot molding processes which significantly increase costs. Prototyping over-mold designs are therefore not […]
