Electronics Housing Injection Molding

We offer customized injection molding solutions for electronic housings, essential for safeguarding sensitive components within electronic devices. Our housings protect against environmental factors like dust, moisture, and temperature fluctuations, ensuring the functionality and reliability of electronic devices over time. This protection is crucial in industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medical, where durable and long-lasting electronic equipment is vital.

Plastic housings offer numerous advantages over traditional metal housings, including cost-effectiveness, durability, efficient manufacturing, and versatile design capabilities. The most common materials we use include polycarbonate, ABS, and PVC, each providing specific benefits like impact resistance, chemical resistance, and thermal stability.

We emphasize the importance of comprehensive testing during the design and development of electronic housings. This includes thermal testing, stress analysis, and environmental testing to ensure that the housings perform adequately under various conditions. Injection molded prototype parts are preferred for these tests as they closely replicate the characteristics of mass-produced housings.

Our approach involves Design for Manufacturability (DFM), moldability review, rapid plastic injection molding tools, and rigorous quality assurance procedures. This ensures that our electronic housing prototypes meet industry standards and client specifications, facilitating functional testing, verification, and process validation early in the design phase.

Considering the need for secure component attachment, we utilize insert molding for metal fasteners within housings, providing reliable attachment points for electronic components such as circuit boards and connectors. This method ensures that components remain securely fastened, preventing issues like loose connections and potential damage during operation.

I have worked with Photoshop on several mold designs over the past year. From the moment I reached out to them with an inquiry, they were prompt in their communication and eager to assist me. I have greatly appreciated and benefited from their extensive expertise and prompt feedback. They consistently offering valuable suggestions and insights that ultimately saved us money in the overall design. As for the quality of work they provided, Dylann and her team have always come through. If any issues do arise, they have been quick to offer solutions and kept us up to date throughout the whole process. If you're looking for a reliable partner for your plastics molding needs, I would check them out.

Having worked with Dylann and Jimmy prior to Protoshop, I knew the immense level of expertise they have for this business and it proved to carry through. They are honest straight shooters that will help guide you and find the best solution for your molds. We needed a mild that could be versatile and allow us to easily change out one side of the design. Dylann helped us come up with an approach that will allow us to continuously iteration the design without having to make a whole new mold every time.

We work regularly with Protoshop on a variety of complex components for various projects. They are an excellent company to work with providing a vast history of experience to help their clients optimize designs. We have worked with them on microfluidic chips with small feature sizes, over molded sealing parts and flexible parts. They have experience working with many materials including Topas (COC), polycarbonate, TPE, PE, and PP. I would highly recommend reaching out on your next project. The team is very responsive to design changes as well as delivering to tight timelines. They also offer design advice and best practices which have helped expedite design iterations.

Great experience with Protoshop. Dylann is extremely responsive and great to work with. Very fast turn-around. Worked with us on our order to get what we needed. I was able to drop ship 3d printed parts from another vendor to Protoshop to have them match-fit and incorporated into our tooling. I will be back again.

Dylann at Protoshop is excellent to work with: highly responsive and proactive. This is possibly the fastest, high-quality work I have ever witnessed. 1 week...from payment (start) to delivery (after CTQ measurements at Protoshop), we had 100 test samples of a component we intend to use in high volume manufacturing. Thank you for the tremendous work! I would highly recommend Protoshop, and will plan to use Protoshop services in the future.
