Injection Molding Capabilities
Pliant has been delighting customers since 1967 with our wide range of injection molding equipment. We utilize state-of-the-art electric presses from 17 to 360 tons to produce parts ranging from simple parts to complex designs with tight tolerances. Pliant has a strong engineering-backed focus to help make your project a success.
Insert & Over-Molding
Insert molding provides designers the flexibility to integrate various machined, stamped, or extruded metals, such as washers or bolts, into a plastic assembly via over-molding. We focus on automating this process but can also place manually, giving us the ability to utilize this process in either horizontal or vertical presses.
Pliant can help remove unnecessary labor from your product. Take advantage of the design options provided by our ability to mold two independent materials in one molding cycle. Requirements for soft touch, sealing, or structural constraints can all be achieved with Pliant’s two-shot molding capabilities. Pliant uses all-electric two-shot machines ranging from 50 to 250 tons of clamp tonnage.
We have the capability to mold in vertical presses with rotating tables which allows us to better accommodate the overmolding of large components. Vertical molding also has other benefits, such as being able to use gravity to our advantage while placing components or eliminating “waste” by utilizing two bottom halves for tooling.
