MICRO MOLDING

Micro molding is a specialist process, and medical device and drug delivery device OEMs that are looking to partner with a company in this area must select carefully. It is vital that the partner you choose has the business acumen and experience necessary, and have talented teams of engineers, the right equipment, understands the correct manufacturing methodologies, and has the tooling and processing expertise to ensure project success.

Isometric Micro Molding has over 100 years of combined experience in micro molding, which means we have absolute confidence in handling and successfully completing any manufacturing challenge involving micro features, micro components, and micro assemblies.

Engineering

Isometric Micro Molding offers expertise at every stage of the design to manufacturing process. Uniquely, we are able to fulfil product design and development, process development, tool design and fabrication, micro molding, and assembly automation solutions all under one roof. We have a team of engineers, toolmakers, and production staff that all work to reduce and ultimately eliminate the risks associated with the manufacture of the most complex and precise micro molded components and assemblies. We have developed the Microns MatterTM best-practice risk assessment strategy which is used for the development and high-volume production of critical-to-function micro molded devices on behalf of our customers.

Mitigating risk is our fundamental goal, and we use state of the art equipment and process validation tools to ensure success. We adhere to and engineering-based strategy of plan, plan, plan, and then execute.

Complex Part Features

Tooling is the key enabling technology when it comes to the success or failure of a micro molding project. Often, medical device OEMs find themselves working with micro manufacturers that do not take a holistic view of the design and manufacturing process, and do not understand the absolute importance of an expert tooling program.

Isometric Micro Molding has precision tool making at its core. This, along with a complete understanding of all the aspects of micro design and manufacturing, means that we are able to manufacture extremely accurate medical device parts and components from high performance polymers with the following complex features.
