  R & D Plastics provides precision plastic overmolding of all sizes of custom components. This .026 diameter wire was overmolded with a flexible PVC strain relief to provide increased part life and seal quality. Our customer was experiencing wire breakage on a regular basis and discussed options with us regarding either a separate or overmolded Strain Relief. We produced prototypes to initially validate the design and then performed the overmolding, cutting, and spooling of the wire. The strain relief was overmolded onto the wire with tolerances of ±.001" using our 40 ton Arburg machine.

After the overmolding of the strain relief, the customer has reported significantly increased product life. Our experienced engineers and designers allow us to help our customers develop a quality, cost-effective solution for any injection molding application. For more information about this precision plastic overmolding project, see the table below, or contact us directly.
