The problem

A headlight assembly for a medical mobility OEM needed to be low cost and fit within specific envelope constraints. However, the initial design included rigid injection molds which were expensive. Even worse, additional assembly was required after molding.

Our solution

Global Interconnect partnered with the customer's engineers to develop a low-pressure molding design that would encapsulate the board without damaging the electronics. In addition, we were able to achieve the complex geometry required to fit into the upper level assembly without any additional assembly steps.

The result

Global Interconnect manufactured and validated the headlight assemblies, meeting all performance and cost goals.

Products Key to this Case Study

Molding

We’re experts at producing low cost vertical and horizontal injection molded thermoplastic and thermoset materials smaller than a shoebox.
