Injection over Glass
Bikkoplast company has years of experience in the manufacture of plastic overmoulded glass. We mainly use this technology in production of glass shelves for refrigerators. In 1995 we launched the first production line for glass shelves for refrigerators using a mould constructed with French designers. In the next few years, our tool shop has redesigned and produced the moulds. Overmolding of glass shelves is a fully automated process: the programmed robot inserts the glass into the mould and takes out the overmolded part out of the mould, all in one cycle. The use of the robot guarantees repeatability of the cycle as well as high quality of parts. For several years now we have been manufacturing glass overmolds also in 2-socket molds, which ensures good productivity and price competitiveness for mass production.
