Micromolding - Place The Focus On Outcomes
This article focuses on what influences the ability of micro molders to mass manufacture successfully, and what influences the process of developing micro parts and components.
Choosing A Partner For Micro-Molded, High-Precision, Silicone Implantable Parts
Micro molding is used for products that require tolerances within the micron range, including components in minimally invasive surgical tools, valves, and seals.
Jump Start Product Development With Rapid Prototyping
Injection molding and 3D printing are complementary techniques, not adversaries when it comes to prototyping. The use of one versus the other is purely situational.
Using Liquid Injection Molding (LIM) For Medical Device Manufacturing
Within the world of medical device manufacturing, liquid injection molding (LIM) is a process that provides several benefits over other methods. Product strength and reduced weight, all while being more cost effective than some other alternatives, and still producing an end product within the set parameters of the device and regulatory bodies are some of those benefits.
Why MTD: Validated Production
The goal of all MTD’s medical injection molding projects is validated production, with the intended result of the validation activities being a robust molding process. This process, when challenged by introducing variation to the critical variables, must result in products meeting the agreed-upon capabilities.
Molding Bioresorbable Materials For Medical Devices And Components
Taking full advantage of bioresorbable materials in medtech requires an understanding of each material’s strengths, production challenges, and ideal applications.
MTD Micro Molding Commemorates Grand Opening Of Facility Expansion
MTD Micro Molding celebrated the grand opening of its expanded medical micro injection molding facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 27. Guests included industry partners and community leaders, who had the opportunity to tour the new space in person.
Precision Molding: Getting It Right The First Time
Precision injection molding ensures that, regardless of the annual production volumes, the process can be consistently repeatable. Learn the critical steps that need to be considered for success with an injection molding project in order to get the process right the first time.
Elements Of Design: Dealing With Suspect Parts
Injection molding has numerous key parameters that must tie together in order to make a repeatable molding process. Learn about a solution that utilizes cavity pressure curves, key process parameter tolerances, and automation to automatically reject parts that do not make the cut in the molding process.
How Thin Can We Go?
One of the most common questions from medical OEMs seems simple: How thin can we go? But the answer is: it depends. One of the main factors is material choice. While there may be many questions involved in figuring out how thin you can go, this article offers some insights.
