Parts assembly is placing, affixing, binding, and fastening a set of parts together to function as one piece or device. It is often necessary to perform construction on a part as a secondary service to injection molding to finalize the product as one completed part. Parts assembly organizes child parts and subparts to help the workflow of putting together complex pieces.
Building techniques and options come in a wide range of services, including general assembly, heat staking, mold-in insets, adhesive bonding, tapping, thread cutting, electroplating, UV bonding and many more. Assembling a product using bolts, nuts, gears, bonding adhesives, and other techniques maintain the part’s structural integrity to ensure that it does not fail.
Will construction be relatively easy or complicated?
Does the part’s assembly phase require jigs and fixes or specialized tools for final assembly?
Can your design for assembly (DFA) reduce needs?
Are some components easily mistaken for other parts?
If so, use numbering or color-coding to avoid common errors in the build. Integrated Molding Solutions takes the time to make sure your manufacturing process for plastic-injected parts runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. We save you time and money by heading forward with the most efficient strategy for the best resulting combination of cost and benefits.
