Custom Reaction Injection Molded (RIM) Enclosures
Design Octaves, Inc. has been in business since 1979 as a full-service RIM (Reaction Injection Molding) supplier. We specialize in molding complex parts (up to 65”) in low volumes from 100 to 5000 pieces per year. All of the Dow RIM materials we mold are UL94V-0 rated for flammability. We build all of our composite aluminum/epoxy tooling in-house and we guarantee every tool for a minimum of 10,000 cycles. Design Octaves also provides the following in-house services: molding, painting, UL certified EMI/RFI shielding, silk screening, and value added assembly. We have 40 employees and own our 21,000 square foot facility here in Soquel California (about a 40-minute drive from the San Jose airport).
Our parts are molded with all details in place with no secondary machining or gluing operations required. We routinely mold-in complex undercut features using CNC machined core pieces. We mold all of our threaded inserts in place during the molding operation. We are one of the few RIM molders who mold threaded inserts in place and that provides the advantage of better locational repeatability and much better pull-out strength compared to threaded inserts installed as a second operation.
