How to Approach Today’s Micro Molding Challenges, Part 2: Tooling – The enabler

It is well known that the micro mold and micromachining are key to the realization of micro molded components and micro automated assemblies. Both capabilities require tooling and fixtures manufactured to extreme precision and positional accuracy in order to produce micro core pins, micro cavity geometry and microfluidic surfaces. In Part 1: Tooling—the enabler, published [...]

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

Each issue, this column will focus on the major challenges in a given area of micro moulding. Split into two parts, this and the next instalment in the April issue, focus on the all-important subject of tooling, addressing and outlining time-tested solutions to some of the most talked about pitfalls in its manufacture and use.Challenges [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
