2 Component molding
The conventional and wide-spread and established two-component injection molding technology forms the basis of the MID technology. Mostly, two different plastic components are both fully automatically injected in a cycle sequence. One of the two components is metallizable and thus represents the conductor path structure.
Depending upon the complexity of the components, the structure widths and the component size, various two-component MID approaches can be chosen.
A possible production sequence:
