How to approach today’s micro moulding challenges Part 1: Tooling-the enabler

Challenges in micro molding have not changed much at all in the past 20–30 years. The solutions to these challenges, however, have changed significantly. The most challenging attribute for micro molding matches up with the highest risk mitigation factor—tooling. For this reason, the top 10 micro molders in the world have in-house tooling design [...]

Secrets of Success in Micro Molding – part 1

Medical-device, electronics, and biopharmaceutical manufacturers need new micro-molded products to create tinier, less invasive, and/or space-saving micro devices. Micro-molded components can be as small as dust specks and/or have features that small. State-of-the-art micro parts can have molded features such as dimples around 3 microns in depth and diameter—more than 80 million of them across [...]
