micro molded plastic parts
Full Service Micromanufacturing

Mikrotech is a leading ISO-certified micromanufacturer of custom designed components and subassemblies for medical devices used in minimally invasive surgery (MIS). The company’s micromanufacturing processes overcome the limitations of established technologies, enabling MIS designers and manufacturers to design and fabricate smaller components with more complex features and high precision tolerances. Mikrotech offers a comprehensive range of services to support MIS designers and manufacturers in all phases of the product development cycle: micromachining, micromolding, insert micromolding, micro subassembly, and design and manufacturing engineering assistance.

Micromachining

Micromachining from Mikrotech utilizes best-in-class multi-axis CNC and Swiss Screw equipment specifically designed for micromachining and has twice the precision as conventional machining equipment. The technology enables MIS designers and manufacturers to obtain precision high quality components with features as small as .020 mm (.0008 in) and take a solid model or CAD drawing to finsihed product in two to four weeks.

  • Accurately machine components weighing less than 0.10 g (.0035 oz.)
  • Dimensional tolerances of +/- .005 mm (.0002 in)
  • Maintain wall thicknesses as low as .080 mm (.003 in.)
  • Vapor polishing and deburring
  • Materials: ABS, PEEK, PAI (Torlon), PPS, PTFE and glassed-filled materials including LCP and PEI (Ultem)
  • Implantable and non-implantable
  • Prototyping or short run production

Micromolding

Micromolding from Mikrotech utilizes best-in-class plastic injection molding equipment for prototype to high volume production. Our micromolding equipment is specifically designed for micromolding and has twice the precision and repeatability as conventional molding equipment. It enables Mikrotech to achieve tolerance targets on complex components that conventional molders cannot maintain and streamline the manufacturing process to create a more robust and reliable design for manufacturing.

  • Accurately mold components weighing less than 0.1 g (.0035 oz.)
  • Dimensional tolerances of +/- .005 mm (.0002 in.)
  • Maintain wall thicknesses as low as .08 mm (.003 in.)
  • Shot-to-shot volume consistency of .001 cm3
  • Runner weight less than 0.25 g (ideal for high-cost implantable grade plastic resins)
  • Materials: LCP, PC, PP, PEEK, PEI, PMP, PPS, PSU, TPU, TPE
  • Implantable and non-implantable
  • Prototype or long run production
  • Micromolding performed in a certified ISO Class 7 clean room in accordance with ISO 14644-1

Insert Micromolding

Insert Micromolding from Mikrotech also utilizes best-in-class plastic injection molding equipment for prototype to high volume production. Our micromolding equipment is specifically designed for micromolding and has twice the precision and repeatability as conventional molding equipment. It enables Mikrotech to achieve tolerance targets on complex components that conventional molders cannot maintain and streamline the manufacturing process to create a more robust and reliable design for manufacturing.

    • SmarTeam (PDM)
    • Moldflow
    • GearTrax
    • CosmosWorks

Mikrotech has an experienced engineering team with a focused understanding of medical devices used in minimally invasive surgery (MIS). We have the ability to help reduce the complexity of manufacturing MIS devices through the process of reducing or eliminating processes that 1) use expensive machined components; 2) require highly skilled labor (artisans) using a microscope; and 3) require complex secondary operations to assemble them. Micromanufacturing technology can be an excellent lower-cost alternative to designing and manufacturing components and subassemblies for MIS devices.
