Leadframe / Insert Molded Parts
[Home]: Leadframe / Insert
and automation systems for lead frame molded parts and insert applications are second to
none. Components can be singulated and shipped bulk, or tape-and-reel to our customers. The MEMS and
IC packaging industries benefit from this specialized capability.
Lead frame packaging technology requires the combination of high quality metal lead frame companies that
produce some of the most intricate designs. Using Accumold's unique technology, we can mold plastic
on and around all different types of metal, tin, copper, silver, and gold to form an air gap seal. Some
of these processes produce completed parts while others are ready for further processing by the customer.
Lead Frame Molding
Manufacturing lead frame molded parts requires fabrication of a system to feed the metal lead
frame into the machine and to extract the complete component from the metal after the plastic has been
molded to it. Our systems designers are experts in fabricating a trouble free and efficient system to
mold the most sophisticated lead frame molded parts.
Insert micro-molding is where an existing or previously manufactured part is molded in and around a wide
variety of materials from metals and glass to other plastics. The image to the left shows an example of advanced insert
molding capabilities where a delicate filter was molded into a plastic housing. This required the mold
to be built in such a precise fashion so that the insert material was not destroyed in the process while
keeping the tolerances tight within the part itself. These parts are similar to 2-shot molding parts.
