Composite (Core-Back) Injection Molding
Plastic manufacturing and the evolution of thermoplastic injection molding technology has continued to develop with a range of innovative options that add potential savings and performance. Aline Components is a leading plastic injection molding company serving the Tri-State area with the finest plastic parts and employing the most advanced custom plastic injection molding equipment and expertise. Composite molding, also known as core-back molding, is a relatively recent thermoplastic injection molding technique that makes use of innovations in material science to enhance new products and components.
Composite molding uses a two-shot molding technology to add a layer of high performance composite material onto another molded element made from a more rigid plastic. The rigid component acts as a substrate for the composite material. The composite has expansion properties during the curing process, and, after cooling, the final component now has a thick layer of composite firmly affixed to the rigid substrate. Core-back molding has the capability to add more structural strength to components with little added weight, making it an ideal choice for many types of applications where this structural efficiency is desired. New products using core-back molding can also provide this greater strength at a reduced cost to the consumer.
Aline Components serves customers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, and beyond. Conveniently located just outside Philadelphia, its state-of-the-art facility employs the latest injection molding equipment and offers plastic parts with all of the most advanced features, such as insert molding, sandwich molding, stack molding for large production runs, and more. Aline’s services range from CAD/CAM documentation support, rapid prototyping, and short-run processes for rush delivery.
