Product Focus: Tubing
■ Plastic and Insert Molding
Okay Industries, New Britain, CT,
has added plastic molding and insert
molding to its metal tube forming, laser
tube cutting, and precision stamping
and machining operations. The
new in-house processes at the company's
New Britain, CT, and Alajuela, Costa Rica, facilities allow the
company to further integrate its production operations. As part of
the expansion, the company invested in both horizontal and rotary
vertical molding machines, as well as additional automation
systems, inspection equipment, and advanced quality control
technologies. The vertical integration of plastic molding and insert
molding allows for highly effi cient production of medical and
surgical components that require tight tolerance and diffi cult- tointricate
part geometries.

and conductor-embedded tubing designs constructed of
polyimide, PTFE, thermoplastics, and hybrid blends. The polyimide
tubing withstands repeated changes in bending, pressure,
and tension. The company uses use a continuous, dip-coat process
that reduces delamination of the layers.
