Tooling for potting and encapsulation

Axiom work with a number of companies designing and manufacturing tooling for their Potting and Encapsulation processes.

Potting and encapsulation are two slightly different processes, they are commonly used to protect electronic and other sensitive components by coating the outside of the component with a resin or specialist compound. In potting the shell or ‘pot’ that is filled becomes part of the component, in encapsulation the component and hardened resin are then removed from the ‘pot’ to be placed in an assembly. This process provides protection against environmental factors such as moisture, dust and vibration, enhancing durability and reliability of electronic assemblies.

Due to the similarity of processing Axiom can provide the tooling that is required for both types of production process.
