Questions About Two-Shot Injection Molding
What design considerations should be made for the two-shot injection molding process?
Two-shot injection molding is the ideal process for complex parts. As such, part design often requires a high level of refinement and sophistication. That’s why we’ve developed a Two Shot Design Guide. It provides the foundation you’ll need to start designing for the two-shot molding process.
How much does two-shot injection molding cost?
Two-shot injection molding eliminates the need for secondary processes such as welding and assembly. As such, piece prices tend to be lower for two-shot molded parts compared to multi-component single-shot assemblies. The tooling for two-shot, on the other hand, tends to be more complex and costly than single-shot. Therefore, two-shot injection molding is most cost-efficient for high-volume productions.
