Tenere Plastic Overmolding
Overmolding

We specialize in overmolding, a process which involves molding plastic over metal or plastic components.  This can be very helpful when trying to cut down on assembly time/cost or when a feature is too complex for assembly.  It can also create a stronger bond between materials.

Structural Foam

This process allows customers to get large, thick parts that are structurally sound and light weight.  Structural foam molding uses less material and a lower tonnage press, resulting in a lower part cost.  Since Tenere has expertise in injection molding and sheet metal fabrication, we can help you convert sheet metal parts to structural foam or form the sheet metal base that supports the structural foam skins in-house.
