PMT specializes in complex insert molding and overmolding. As a premier provider of complex plastic insert molding, we offer custom automation cells, advanced robotics, vertical injection and rotary table molding.
PMT knows the challenges of custom insert and overmolding requires a strategic partner who can be your guide—outline the course, map the process and ultimately arrive at the desired outcome, on time. Partnering with PMT means you can be confident you're getting the experience and engineering expertise to guide the process from start to finish.
Our experienced team can perfect your part design with a variety of materials—from plastics, elastomers and metals to aluminum, brass, steel, copper and more.
PMT’s insert experience includes terminals and contacts, screw machine components, cold-headed components, wound-coil bobbins, photo-etched components, and magnetic compounds. Production capabilities include both manual and automated loading, using vertical, horizontal or rotary table presses. Automation capabilities include feeder bowl, continuous strip feeding, robotic pick and placement/retrieval, and mechanical and electrical testing. PMT also offers custom automation systems for insert molding, using advanced robotics.

Vision System to ensure accurate insert placement
PMT is a trusted overmolding source for customers in the electrical, medical device, appliance, telecommunications, transportation and electronics sectors. The overmolding process allows one thermoplastic materials to be molded over another material. The bonded materials create a single plastic part that achieves a particular aesthetic or ergonomic goal.
Materials are the focus of the overmolding process. With backgrounds and training in polymer science and plastics engineering, our expert team can help you navigate the complexities of resin selection to optimize the molding process for you part.
Benefits of Overmolding
Achieves an efficient and streamlined product design
Reduces secondary operations, assembly and post-molding labor costs
Improves part functionality and reliability by binding two plastic materials in one step
Encapsulation of components can provides protection from corrosion, vibration and/or shock for environmentally-sensitive metals or electronic parts
