Osprey Measurement Systems Chooses Overmould to Protect Electronics From Water Ingress

Osprey Measurement Systems manufacture precision monitoring equipment for the civil engineering industry. Their devices measure ground settlement and deformation during construction of road or rail embankments, tunnels, or deep excavations, ensuring an efficient construction process and safe infrastructure during its lifespan.
In such hostile environments one key challenge is to protect the electronics from water ingress. Overmould provided Osprey with a cost-effective overmoulding solution.

rapid prototyping

Rapid Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping is a valuable step in product development. It provides a real-life product to analyse, test, and improve upon, before final production begins.
The goal in prototyping is to produce final production-like components.
The lessons learned in the prototype phase are then implemented when scaling up for volume production.

overmoulding for strain relief

Overmoulding For Strain Relief

A strain relief is a standard feature in cables for relieving the stress and tensions between the rigid connector or device and the flexible cable. The point at which a cable exits a connector body or other component can be a critical failure point because of repeated flexing therefore a well-designed strain relief is vital for the mechanical and electrical integrity, optimum lifespan and general performance of all types of cables. By far the most superior strain relief in most applications, is a custom designed, overmoulded strain relief.
