Overmolding Services of Pathfinder Ultra Scanning Guns

One of Tech-Way Industries' logistics customers contacted us with an order for 72,000 Pathfinder Ultra Scanning Guns, and they needed them delivered in only two to three weeks. Tech-Way's experienced staff of engineers thrives on this kind challenge, and we began working on the complex assemblies immediately. The barcode scanning gun had an internal printer, USB port, programmable screen, and included Bluetooth to transmit parameters, plus a charging stand. Our engineers work generated the necessary tooling, molds, dies, and fixturing to produce the scanning guns. We then used multi-color two stage overmolding, featuring a two-stage rotary platen, and heat shrink fixturing to manufacture the guns, which were 9" long, 3.5" wide, and 11.25" high. Flame retardant materials like flexible black Santoprene thermoplastic elastomer, polycarbonate thermoplastic polymer, and ABS thermoplastic were fabricated to narrow tolerances of ±.001". Texturing followed before the scanning guns were highly polished to SPE/SPI #2 standards, and laser engraved using Tech-Way's 50 W diode pump fiber laser. Pad printing, used to transfer a 2D image onto the 3D scanning gun, and labeling services were also provided by Tech-Way. Custom color matching using the Pantone color system guaranteed customer satisfaction with the final aesthetics of the scanning guns, which were manufactured to both UL and CE standards. Tech-Way engineered, fabricated, assembled, and delivered over 70,000 of these scanning guns to our customer in Miamisburg, OH, customer in only two to three weeks.

Tech-Way Industries cut our teeth on projects like this, which required the skills and expertise to engineer, fabricate, and assemble thousands of complex scanning guns in a short window of time. Learn more about High-Tech's services by contacting us today.
