Xometry offers insert molding as part of its injection molding capabilities. For a free insert molding design review and quote, upload your CAD files here. Our expert team of injection molders will get back to you within 24 hours. If you want to learn more about our injection molding capabilities, download our design guide here. If injection molding isn’t the best fit for you, you could also try urethane casting or 3D printing.
Insert Molding is an injection molding process that works especially well for parts that have threaded holes. It can also help you create better wheels, pulleys, fan blades, and other similar parts. Done correctly, insert molding can help:
Molding creates fully dense, smooth parts with superior mechanical performance.
Molding is best known for its unmatched production capabilities from thousands to millions of identical parts.
We offer ISO 9001, AS9100, ISO 13485, UL, ITAR, and ISO 7 & 8 Medical Clean Room molding.
Xometry delivers top quality plastic injection molded parts in as little as 10 business days. Our Manufacturing Partner Network can help you design and manufacture tools, dies, and molds for rapid tooling for prototyping to advanced mold making for production runs. Full injection molding capabilities including overmolding, unlimited undercuts, and internal/external threads are available.
Overmolding lets you combine multiple materials into one part. One material, usually a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE/TPV), is molded onto a second material, which is often a rigid plastic. Think about your toothbrush handle where the single piece has both rigid and rubbery components. It’s a great way to make plastic parts perform and look better.
Our vetted network of partners allow us to quickly convert your 3D part data into a high-quality injection mold at top speed. We offer services from design and manufacturing for tools, dies, and molds for prototyping and production runs. Plastic blow molds, aluminum and steel tooling, 2-shot and 3-shot molding are also available. And with Xometry, you own your own tools, so our partner network also offers mold maintenance services.
Choose from millions of possible combinations of materials, finishes, tolerances, markings, and certifications for your order.
Get your parts delivered right to your door without the hassle of sourcing, project management, logistics, or shipping.
Only the top 6% of shops that apply to become Partners make it through our multi-tiered qualification process, so you can be confident your parts will be made right.
