Since the 1990s, demand for smaller, intricate optical components has soared, requiring precision engineering across multiple industries. The drive for miniaturization spans from medical devices to consumer electronics, emphasizing the need for precise micro-molded optics. Achieving tight tolerances and managing complex optical structures demand innovative solutions and advanced manufacturing techniques.

Overmolding and creating sub-assemblies, especially with LSR optics, introduce additional complexities but offer significant benefits. Handling and packaging these tiny components also pose challenges, necessitating sophisticated automation for high-volume production. Let's delve into these challenges and offer some insights for staying on schedule and budget in micro optics molding projects.
