The low-pressure injection molding process HOT-MELT enables the gentle coating of sensitive electronic components. Due to the resistance to high temperatures, moisture, oils or disinfectants of the used plastics, the HOT-MELT process is interesting for components which have to be protected against damaging environmental influences, e.g. in the automotive or medical technology.
The HOT-MELT process is characterized by high flexibility and comparatively low tooling costs. Therefore it is attractive for small series and prototype construction. In the HOT-MELT process, the components are placed in a tool form that is produced based on individual requirements and directly overmoulded with the melting plastic. After cooling, the coated components are immediately available for further processing. The one-component system of the HOT-MELT molding process is a simple, fast and clean production process.
