Lynn Products has extensive expertise in molding. It is one of our specialties. Molding, or overmolding, may be in the form of a connector backshell, a strain relief, a breakout, or enclosures. Overmolding of connectors can offer many advantages; cost savings, durability, water resistance, conductor integrity, color options, part number and logo inserts.
Strain reliefs, where a cable or wire is held for entry into a backplane, housing, or backshell, take many forms. A strain relief can be designed to provide an increased bend radius when flexed to extend the cycle life of a cable. Other functions of a strain relief will be to prevent pull out or rotation of a cable where it enters an enclosure.
Breakout molds are those which allow multiple conductors or cables to be held in place after a splice. Enclosures are typically of a hard plastic such as ABS. These may be required to protect delicate electronic components and may be better suited than injection molding.
Lynn Products has a large inventory of tooling that can be utilized. When custom molds and tooling are required we provide a rapid response with detailed design drawings. Let us help with your new or current molding requirements.
