With the pressure on engineers to deliver smaller, lighter and more cost-effective components many are turning to micro molding for support. This presentation will explore the advantages micro molding can provide and the processes necessary for development. Examples include pushing the limits, high-volume with high-quality, and samples of overmolded/insert molded components.
Accumold® is a high-tech manufacturer of precision micro, small and lead frame injection molded plastic components. Molded parts range in size from 5cm, with micro features, to parts that are less than 1mm in size. These complex parts often include tight tolerances measuring only a few microns. Processes include: insert molding, clean room molding, 2-shot molding, and custom automated manufacturing cells. Materials include: PEEK, Ultem, LCP, and most engineered thermoplastics. Markets include: Micro Electronics, Medical, Micro Optics, Sensors, and other emerging technologies.
