Article: The Prototyping Challenges With Micro Molding

Source: Accumold
accumoldDL As you've no doubt seen, the demand for high tech gadgets has grown exponentially over the recent years. With it also came the demand for today's electronics to do more in less space. Along with this came pressures and expectations for manufacturing to follow suit. From this need, processes like micro-molding were born. Known injection molding standards and techniques were being challenged to produce smaller, more complicated and tighter toleranced parts and components. And as the demand for micro-molded plastic parts grew so did the expectations on the technology. This article discusses the various methods, challenges, and variables for prototyping micro-sized and/or micro-featured plastic parts.
