2-Shot Injection Molding Services

Two-shot plastic injection molding, also called 2K injection molding, is widely used for 2 components over-molding, or double color over-molding. Two- shot injection molding process not only can provide a high-class soft-touch feeling product, or dual-color product, but also being pretty cost efficiency because of the automatic production. We can find a lot of consuming products in our daily life that using this process, for example the brushes handles, tooling-case handles.

With 2-shot injection molding, there are some disadvantages at the injection molding tooling.

× As for a high-volume production, the 2-shot injection molding tool have to be with high accuracy, so that the tooling movement will be smoothly (open/close & 180 degrees rotation).
× Besides, the tooling also should be with reliable strength & stable tooling life, so that be able to provide a high efficiency and stable injection molding production.
× Accordingly, the injection molding tooling cost will be high, while the tooling fabrication lead time would be long.
However, if with a reliable injection molding manufacturer and suitable project management for the schedule, we will find that 2-shot injection molding would have significant advantages at high volume injection molding.

The advantages of 2-shot injection molding, for high volume production:

  • Super low part price (2 component at molding machine for production, without post process);
  • Reducing engineering cost;
  • Cosmetic & tidy parts (with accuracy tooling, no post trimming or cleaning after production);
  • Much lower injection molding management effort;
  • Save time and assembled / secondary operation cost;
  • Stable forecasted production schedule;
  • Increase product value and marketability.

  • Maximum components: 2 components (NOT for 3-shot)
  • Maximum molding machine: 400 Ton
When we talk about over-molding, we mostly mentioned it for low-medium volume production. While for high volume production, we would adopt 2-shot injection molding in usual. The injection molding process we choose will be also affected by the tooling cost, injection molding cost, tooling fabrication lead time and etc. Following would be:

The Comparison between Over molding and 2-shot injection molding.
