Thin-Walled Micro Injection Molding For Devices

Isometric Micro Molding's micromachining of micro molds enables thin-walled micro injection molding in thermoplastic, silicone, and metal.  To mold micro thin-wall devices, polymer selection, ultra-precision tooling, and knowledge of CFD (computational fluid dynamics) is critical. For micro molded devices to be small, compliant, comfortable, and/or flexible, they may require very wall thicknesses as thin as 0.002″ (50 µm). Also necessary is the analysis, tooling, processing, and handling of very [...]
