At DUKE Extrusion, we are experts at overmolding extruded tubing. Overmolding is an effective, permanent method of bonding a variety of components to an extrusion. Overmolding is also a very efficient way to produce custom reliable tubing bonds without additional components such as adhesives.
The Duke Extrusion professionals understand and provide overmolding tubing extrusion services. Luer fittings can be affixed to the end for connection to other devices. Over molding can also be used to add ports and strain reliefs for transitions from flexible tubing to more rigid handles.
Over molding nose cones onto tubes can create custom extrusion tube devices and atraumatic ends for catheter applications such as:
- Delivery system nose cones
- Device introducers
- Radiopaque marker bands
- Metal inserts
- Wire harnesses
- Electrical connectors
- And more
Overmolding can also be combined with insert injection molding to incorporate metal parts, such as pins, rings, or marker bands, as well as to attach molded components onto the tubing.
