As world leaders in high volume micro molding technology and process, we see a wide range of incredible ideas, next-generation technology, and sophisticated thermoplastic part designs. We also see quite a few challenges, and areas for improvement, frequently collaborating on the final component design.
Our customers have come to discover our expertise in all thermoplastics and micro mold materials. We know the wide-ranging characteristics plastic will exhibit when subjected to various pressure, size, angle, fill, heat and micro tolerance requirements.
Our own engineer, Gregory “Pete” Peterson has solved some of the most difficult challenges in microscopic component design by coaching our customer’s design teams, helping them refine their designs into something that not only satisfies their requirements but greatly exceeds their expectations.
This is the subject of his new feature article in the June issue of Design World. Here’s an expert from the opening paragraph.
As medical and wearable devices become much smaller and lighter than anyone could have previously imagined, a new breed of engineers and designers are turning their focus to ultra-small thermoplastic component design. In this shift however, a pattern has emerged where micron tolerance considerations are presenting some common mistakes.
What Is Micro Molding?
Being world leaders means we get a lot of questions. To find out what micro molding is and why it’s different at Accumold go to our exhaustive article titled What Is Micro Molding?
