Isometric’s Microns Matter® Proven Process for Medical Micro Molding

Micro molding for critical applications requires extreme precision and a consistent, proven process. After all, micro-sized components are often the key enabling elements of Class II or Class III medical devices and drug delivery devices which, because of their size, often require micron-level tolerances. With 30 years’ experience in micro injection [...]

Isometric Micro Molding to present at Antec 2018

Isometric Micro Molding is proud to present at the distinguished Antec 2018.  Isometric's presentation will be based on a case study for risk assessment strategy for a Class III implantable drug delivery device with a total tolerance of 16 microns for a polymer part. Micro sized components are often the enabling components to Class [...]

Micro Medical Device Chips Deliver Pinpoint Pain-Relieving Therapies

Often times in micro manufacturing, we use what has been successful in nature.  Commonly, natural pressure, or piezoelectric, capillary, and venture-type actions utilize pressure and surface tension to move fluids to and through implants and needles to move blood or active ingredients to direct places in the body. Isometric Micro [...]

Eye, Blood, and Joint Fluid Traveling Devices- Where Micro Molding Meets 3D Printing

It’s long been known that micro vs. macro physics have thwarted some efforts to create micro components and assemblies.  The study of Newtonian (fixed viscosity) and Non-Newtonian fluids (variable viscosity) fluids have an unique impact on developing and scaling drug delivery devices and body-fluid flow.  Non-Newtonian fluids can be found in [...]

Tiny Medical Devices – Designing for Success (part 2)

VALIDATION Picture this – your medical device is designed and you’re ready to validate the tiniest component – the technology piece that enables your intellectual property. You dive in head first, knowing your part has +/- 5 micron tolerances on a plastic part. You start like any engineer would start – with a solid stack-up [...]
