Micro Molding

Manufacturers of micro devices have difficulty creating and maintaining reliable manufacturing processes due to expensive machined components, the need for highly skilled labor, and complex secondary operations for assembly. These methods of manufacturing place limitations on size, complexity, material selection, production yields, and profitability.

Micro molding enables designers more flexibility in designing smaller, more complex devices. Micro molding can reduce or eliminate dependency on the microscope to assemble the device and lead to higher production yields.

Our micro molding processes achieve tolerance targets on complex components that conventional molders cannot maintain. From prototype to high-volume production, we streamline the manufacturing process to create a more robust and reliable design for manufacturing.

Our micro molding technology has a range of abilities that include:

  • Using high-performance plastics such as PEEK, PPS, PEI, and LCP
  • Maintaining dimensional tolerances of +/- .005 mm (.0002 in)
  • Accurate components weighing less than 0.1 g (.0035 oz)
  • Implantable and non-implantable components
  • Wall thicknesses as low as .08 mm (.003 in)
  • Lens (optical) quality components

Some of the most common micro molding materials we work with include (but are not limited to):

ABS: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
PEEK: Polyether Ether Ketone
PP: Polypropylene
LCP: Liquid Crystal Polymer
PEI: Polyetherimide
TPU: Thermoplastic Polyurethane
PPS: Polyphenylene Sulfide
