Insert molding combines materials for various purposes. Metal and plastics or even catheters can be inserted and molded into a single unit. The process makes use of specifically designed assemblies for improved performance and unique attributes.
One of the most common insert molded parts at Minnesota MedTec is a hub for a swivel. A PTFE lined shaft is inserted into a mold and a hub is molded around the shaft where a swivel connector can be pressed onto it and can be used to attach to special luer connector.
