"During the development of high end moulds, Delbrouck bridges the gap between a customer's product drawings and the final actual product in a very professional way. They make an extra effort to make sure the customer will take full advantage of Delbrouck's experience in order to meet the highest product requirements."

While Delbrouck Industries is qualified to handle a wide range of injection mold projects demanding quality and competitive pricing, over the years we have developed considerable expertise in several specific industries or product categories, exemplified below.
"As both an engineering and manufacturing company, Delbrouck manages to streamline the design-to-manufacturing process. They offer expert advice and provide options and solutions to preserve the functional and aesthetic integrity of the design."
We also pride ourselves in having successfully managed a number of development projects from an early concept stage all the way to mass production and real success in the marketplace.
Co-Molds and Co-Molding
Delbrouck Industries has extensive experience
and know-how in the specialized area of co-molding a plastic material with a synthetic rubber material.
We can also co-mold the same plastic material
in two different colors for aesthetic effect.
Co-molding with rubber can give a
product both a functional and aesthetic advantage. A common reason for co-molding plastic with rubber is to provide a comfortable non-slip hand or finger grip on a tool handle, for example. By using contrasting plastic and rubber colors the aesthetic value of the product can be enhanced as well. The rubber can also be molded in the shape of a logo against a contrasting plastic color background, or vice
injected into a cavity and around an insert piece placed into the same cavity just prior to molding. The result is a single piece with the insert encapsulated by and bonded to the plastic. The insert piece can be of metal or another plastic material. A typical example would be a plastic envelope slitter with a steel cutting blade as the insert piece.
We can also mold rubber onto stainless steel
parts by means of the insert molding process. However, there are limitations due to the fact that rubber does not bond to metal in the way
for the medical products industry and other similar industries with exacting requirements.
Over the years Delbrouck has manufactured
a variety of component parts or products for surgical specialties (such as opthalmology and arthroscopy), dental specialties, and other highly accurate items.
We use a variety of medical grade, gamma
radiation stable, plastic resins in our OEM production. Some imported medical grade resins are kept in stock in our factory and others can be obtained from a variety of sources in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and
