Finishing Options for Injection Moulding

Choose from a wide selection of finishing options for moulding that strengthen parts, improve cosmetic appearance, provide customisation, and other benefits.


 
Post-Processing for Moulded Parts

Depending on your application's requirements, you can choose from the following when requesting an injection moulding quote:

  • Mould texturing
  • Threaded inserts
  • Pad printing
  • Laser engraving
  • Basic assembly
  • Inspection Reports

Inspection Reports

We offer three types of dimensional inspection reports to support your critical dimension verification and quality documentation requirements such as FAIs.

Threaded Inserts

In addition to insert moulding, we install heat and self-tapping inserts post moulding.

Pad Printing

Transfer a two-dimensional image, like a company logo, onto a three-dimensional object. All images are reviewed for size, colour, and complexity restrictions.

Laser Engraving

Laser engraving can be applied to the mold or directly to final parts for information such as logos or part numbers. Laser engraving ensures crisp, consistent information on each part or serialisation.

Basic Assembly

At Protolabs, basic assembly includes fastening moulded parts together that we’ve manufactured and/or applying of labels to individually bagged parts.

Mould Texturing 

Apply industry standard textures to a mould. With mould texturing you can expect the equivalent of a Mold-Tech or Eschmann finish.
