Insert micro molding can provide an excellent alternative for the manufacturing of micro devices. Our plastic injection molding equipment is specifically engineered for insert micro molding and has twice the precision and repeatability as conventional molding equipment. This enables us to achieve tolerance targets on complex components that conventional molders cannot maintain; and streamlines the manufacturing process to create a more robust and reliable design for manufacturing.
There are numerous benefits to employing insert micro molding technology in the manufacturing of new and existing work devices. These include:
- Minimal or zero dependency on microscope to assemble
- Elimination of expensive machined components
- Reduction or elimination of secondary operations
- Increased production yields
- Decreased manufacturing cycle time
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 PA: Polyamide PET: Polyethylene Terephthalate PPS: Polyphenylene Sulfide PBT: Polybutylene Terephthalate POM: Polyoxymethylene PSU: Polysulfone PC: Polycarbonate PMP: Polymethylpentene
