Plastic-Part Manufacturing
Diversified Plastics Inc. specializes in the injection molding of high-precision, close-tolerance, small- to medium-sized plastic medical device components. The company serves as a single source for manufacturing services, from design assistance and mold production to injection molding and assembly. Its tooling division produces molds for preproduction and small-scale runs and multicavity tools for full-scale production. The manufacturer also maintains an ISO Class 8 cleanroom reserved for assembly, sonic welding, and part-packaging operations. Its mold-making equipment is capable of creating complex mold designs, and its electric molding machines are suited for producing high-precision components from high-performance materials in a cleanroom environment. Parts can also be machined from plastic tube, rod, or bar stock for low-volume applications or when the material is difficult to mold.

LSR Overmolding
A company that molds plastic components on a contract basis can overmold bondable liquid silicone rubber (LSR). Rogan Corp. injection-molds the bondable LSR directly to plastic or metal parts, integrating the silicone rubber with the plastic or metal in a single molded product that features an enhanced appearance and adds the performance characteristics of LSR to those of the substrate material. The benefits of bondable-LSR overmolding include integral shock and vibration protection, sound dampening, minimization of the number of components in an assembly, and simplified inventory management.
