iConn Systems developed a combination of overmold technologies to create synergy
and produce a rubust design for a fire detection manufacturer.
The main challenge of redesigning the testing device was to provide an integrated package that included a rocker switch, an electrical connector to plug into the system, a detection resistor and informative labeling. Overmolding of a commercially available rocker switch was the largest challenge and the key in making this a successful design
iCONN System’s approach was to use two different overmolding technologies together to create a synergy and produce a robust design for the fire detection system.
This solution included the design and development of an extremely compact size product, approximately 75% smaller relative to conventional methods.
The customer was pleased with the redesign of their prototype. iCONN System’s engineers were able to take our customer’s concept and improve upon the design to improve accuracy, size, and functionality, all while reducing overall cost.
iCONN System’s design engineers actively pursue new ways of applying various types of overmold processes, techniques and materials to develop new products that reduce costs and out-perform traditionally assembled products.
