Micro Giants: Micromolding for Medtech

Medical Product Outsourcing Sep 2018 article featuring Isometric Micro Molding, Inc. The medical industry’s demands are continually challenging suppliers and manufacturers to stretch their technical competencies into areas where they may fear to tread. Doctors and surgeons urge instruments for less invasive procedures and quicker recovery times, devices are shrinking and becoming more complex, [...]

Isometric’s Microns Matter™ Process

Components and devices with micron tolerances can only be manufactured successfully by applying years of tooling and plastics engineering experience. This allows for the accurate estimation of percentage tolerance risks and ways to mitigate such risks at each phase of the Microns MatterTM process. These phases include: ULTRA-PRECISION TOOLING METROLOGY MATERIAL DRYING MATERIAL LOT TO LOT [...]

A Proven Process for the Manufacture Micro Molded Medical Devices for Critical Applications

Micro-sized components are often the key enabling elements of Class II or Class III medical devices and drug delivery devices, and because of their size, they often require micron-level tolerances. With 30 years’ experience in micro injection molding, Isometric Micro Molding has developed a best-practice risk assessment strategy called “Microns MatterTM”, which is used for [...]

Isometric Micro Molding to present at Antec 2018, co-located with NPE

Micro sized components are often the enabling components to Class II or III medical or drug delivery devices and, because of their size, require micron-level (0.0000397”) tolerances. Micro molding drug delivery devices to micron tolerances requires a solid risk assessment and a correspondingly extreme fine tuning of existing injection molding technologies. A case study for [...]

Super Hydrophobic and Super Hydrophilic Microfluidic Surfaces-Scalable and Economical Methods of Manufacturing

Super-hydrophobic and super-hydrophilic microscopic surfaces are created using microscopic and repeated geometric patterns (tiny cylindrical posts and channels).  These features can be fabricated to work collaboratively on the same surface to promote fluid flowing in some areas or prevent fluid flowing in other areas of a device.  The video below shows a collaboration of micro surfaces [...]

Biosensors Use Hand Held Micro Spectroscopy to Detect Cancer

PCR, Assay Plates, Well Strips, and thin-walled PCR tips and wells have long been on the market and serving a scientific purpose.  Micro molded micro surfaces and tiny polymer components are a scalable and economic method to produce these biomedical and laboratory disposables. Fast forward to the future where we are [...]

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 [...]
