Micro Molded Optics: Bringing Clarity To Medicine

As medical instruments such as endoscopes continue to get smaller, they allow physicians to view new parts of the body and improve the recovery time of the patients. This miniaturization is enabled by tiny precision optics made with a type of injection molding known as micro molding.

Although micro molding can accomplish extreme precision and miniaturization, it is more complex than traditional injection molding. Partnering with an experienced micro molder who can offer input on the design and has advanced equipment and tooling capabilities can help manufacturers create innovative and complex optical-based components for medical instruments.
