The Process | Tarapath | Low Pressure Moulding
Low Pressure Moulding is a process that sits between conventional injection moulding and traditional potting or casting processes.
To understand how low pressure moulding can improve your product, and even your business, it is helpful think of the '4R approach'.
REPLACE. REDUCE. RE-USE. RETHINK.
Replace traditional potting, sealing and conformal coating which can be costly.
BOM part numbers required
Reduce material, cycle time, equipment and operations footprint.
The Low Pressure Moulding process creates the opportunity to make serious reductions that are good for your product, and even better for your bottom line.
The ability to “skyline” components and electronics, rather than fill up an enclosure, means that the amount of material used for each product can be dramatically reduced.
The traditional potting process
Insert & Assemble
Vacuum or Settle
Reduce cycle time
When you replace traditional electronics potting with the Low Pressure Moulding Process you are replacing up to 8 steps with 3 simple steps.
Insert parts directly into the mouldset.
30 sec – 2 min encapsulation process.
Parts handled immediately after moulding.
Reduce Equipment and Operations Footprint
Low Pressure Moulding requires significantly less space than potting and conformal coating processes. Space savings come from not requiring – storage for WIPS that are curing – Conformal Coating spray booths – Dispensing Equipment – Vacuum Chambers – Extraction systems.
They can be replaced with a single Low Pressure Moulding Machine.
Re-use, recycle and reconsider the effect of your product on the environment.
Low Pressure Moulding allows you to rethink what your product can be.
