With the pressure on design engineers to deliver smaller, lighter and more cost-effective components many are turning to micro injection molding for support. Challenges often arise when designing for micro molding that can present unforeseen road blocks. Questions like - What is micro molding? How is it different from standard molding? Or, what do I need to know to be successful at molding a micro plastic part? - are commonly asked by engineers. Micro Injection molding Essentials will explore the answers to these and other pertinent questions. Other topics include: design guidelines, understanding the prototyping challenges, and the material selection process for micro molding.
