Two Shot Injection Moulding

Two shot injection moulding is the ability to produce complex mouldings from two different polymers at the same time during one machine cycle. This has the benefits of creating mouldings with more than one colour, or with different materials combined in one moulding. The joins between the separate colours or materials are very strongly joined through the forming process when the second material is injected into the mould. Taking advantage of these elements allows designers to create complicated mouldings very easily, with a high level of accuracy and moulded to a high level of repeatability.

  • Complex mouldings
  • Cost reductions
  • Improved quality
  • Reduced cycle times
  • Improved bonding
