Continuous Strip Molding

Posted by: Mu Ju 2019-06-08 Comments Off on Continuous Strip Molding

Continuous strip molding (or reel-to-reel molding) is used to efficiently manufacture and assemble small electronic components and other parts that combine tiny metal and plastic components. The process uses a feed reel and a take-up reel: a continuous metal "carrier" strip is precisely indexed off the feed reel, passes through an injection mold and onto the take-up reel. The molded parts are delivered to customers still on the take-up reel, and placed directly in automated production equipment for hands-off operations that add more components, install covers, or form electrical leads, etc.
