Insert Molded Automotive Sensor

Fabrik Molded Plastics can provide a variety of injection molding processes that allow us to create custom parts for various uses. The project shown here, an electrical sensor used for an automotive application, was created using insert injection molding. This molded sensor is part of a safety system and required a high level of quality control, not only for the safety features but for final assembly as well.

Utilizing our 85 ton vertical injection molding machine, the sensor housing was formed with terminals and an overmolded magnet. We provided 100% part inspections which included continuity and hi-pot testing, as well as terminal location tests.
