In the world of overmolded cable assemblies the styles, configurations and customization capabilities is almost limitless. The spectrum in which cables assemblies are used today varies drastically in complexity and functionality. A growing style in cable assemblies are those that can connect multiple devices together via a junction.

A junction also known as a transition or Y mold links several cables together. The junction point is a focal area that needs to be durable and provide orientational structure for the cables its connecting. In order to do this there is a "premold" made out of polypropylene that serves as the framework. This premold is then overmolded with a more aesthetic material such as PVC which can be in various colors and include features such as strain reliefs and logos. In some cases the junction point has a sensitive component such as a PC board; this type of transition requires a durable cap that provides a protective housing for the junction.

The junction provides several benefits which include consolidating several connections into one unit, this can result in saved space and organization for a multicable assembly. Another benefit a cable junction provides is a precise geometric layout of cables that can reduce the possibility of making a wrong connection by the final user. Cable junctions also provide much more structure and protection to internal wires than a transition with heat shrink tubing. In addition overmolded transitions are more aesthetically appealing than a heat shrinked option.
