​What are the benefits of the connector over-molding process

Over-molding is an injection molding process in which two or more materials are used to combine a wire harness and a connector to form a single component and place the cable assembly within the mold. In this process, the first material substrate is covered by other materials, and the over-molding process requires the use of insert molding (single injection) or multiple injection molding techniques to cover the rigid plastic part with the TPU layer or other over-mold material. So what are the benefits of the connector and harness over-molding process?

What are the benefits of the connector over-molding process

1. Increase the flexibility of the cable harness outlet so that most of the movement between the cable harness and the connector occurs at the cable harness exit.

2. Provide wear resistance, impact resistance or impact resistance.

3. The cable assembly is prevented from being tampered by encapsulating the component under the sealing resin.

4. Provide 360 degree strain relief and increase tension.

5. Create a waterproof or waterproof seal to make the cable assembly IP certified.

6. Improve the overall quality, appearance and feel of the cable assembly, replacing the need for expensive metal back-shells.

7. Simplify installation by creating a one-piece component that has keys as a visual indicator to help each pair pair reduce human error.

It is said that the main advantage of connector and harness over-molding is that it has a longer service life and higher reliability, and over-molding can shield internal components, enhance protection performance, and help the cables which Used in harsh environments.
