IP67 Waterproof Connectors are available in overmolded design

Built to withstand harsh applications, standard and custom IP67-rated connectors feature watertight seal and are designed to withstand shock, vibration, and corrosion. Injection over-molding, which entails 2 different shots (pre-mold and final mold), increases ruggedization. While pre-mold, made ofÂ hard durometer polypropylene,Â serves asÂ protective encapsulater and helps keep contacts in place, final mold is available in various..

Benefits of Modular Tooling for Injection Molding

When designing tools for injection molding there are many factors that encompass the effectiveness of the tool. Some of these include placement of injection points in respect to material flow, what type of gate to use, wall thickness, textures, and gripper bar design. ISC’s approach to tooling is modular tooling. Modular tooling enables the use..

Over-Molding for D-Subminiature (D-sub)

D-subminiature or D-sub is a common connector that derived its name from its D-shaped metal shield. The D-shaped shield serves several purposes such as mechanical support, ensuring correct orientation and serving as a barrier to electromagnetic interference. The original design was invented by ITT Cannon in 1952 and has since been adopted by other connector..

Injection Over-Molding for MIL-SPEC Style and COTS Connectors

U.S. Military connector specifications are rigid and held to extremely high standards. These types of connectors were originally developed in the 1930’s to withstand the harsh environments and applications set forth by the final users. To have a connector that classifies as a MIL-SPEC connector requires stringent testing and qualification that is defined by the..

Overmold Solutions for Cable Junctions

In the world of overmolded cable assemblies the styles, configurations, and customization capabilities are almost limitless. The spectrum in which cables assemblies are used today varies drastically in complexity and functionality. A growing style in cable assemblies are those that can connect multiple devices together via a junction. A junction also known as a transition..

Overmolding Printed Circuit Board Assemblies (PCBA’s)

Printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA’s) have been around since the early 1900s and have become commonplace in most electronic devices used today. PCBA’s are designed and used in a wide array of applications because of their size and ability to work with peripheral devices. Since PCBA’s are so functional and dynamic they are integrated into..

Suited for industrial automation applications, M8 and M12 Connectors are available in panel mount, cordset, and patchcord styles. Units feature fully potted housing for harsh environments, as well as snap and threaded couplers and various pole configurations. Polypropylene premold protects and encapsulates all electrical connections, while final mold, available in PVC, TPR, and TPE, can..

US Based Cable Assembly Manufacturer Utilizes Vertical Integration and Lean Manufacturing

Looking back at the U.S’s manufacturing history we have seen many ways that entrepreneurs have developed an economic or competitive advantage over their competition. These include vertical and horizontal integration which were popularized by Carnegie and Rockefeller as well as mass production which was developed by Ford. Over the years these practices were used and..

Signal and Power Connectors use overmolding for strain relief

Designed to eliminate mismating, fully polarized Microfit Connectors have isolated contacts that prevent terminal damage as well as full locking latch to prevent disconnections. Typical applications include PCs, printers, and mainframes. Slightly larger in size, Minifit Jr. and Sr. offer higher amperage and current capacities and are suited for appliances, telecom, and medical industries. When..
