What 3D Printing Brings to Medical Micro Molding

Micro 3D printed photopolymer cardiovascular medical device, held by tweezer tips, by Isometric Micro Molding

Isometric Micro Molding was featured in a Plastics Today article that shared how Isometric helps medical device OEMs accelerate time to market while reducing costs by means of additive manufacturing.

“Microprinting is not just feasible for prototyping, it’s become a go-to for the development phases of many micro molding and micro automated assembly programs.” – Donna Bibber

The article describes how Isometric has invested in a development lab dedicated to 3D printing and rapid prototyping and now has seven 3D printing machines in-house, with plans to add more to support miniaturized device manufacturing capabilities using advanced materials. When prototype parts are needed quickly or if the customer requires multiple design iterations in parallel, 3D printing the components in a photopolymer is advantageous, but 3D printing mold inserts for molded components in the intended thermoplastic is a game changer.
