Micro Molding

Micro MoldingThe need for “small” is growing. Whether it’s our techno-centric society demanding supercomputer functionality from a watch or an orthopedic surgeon performing a procedure through an opening the size of a dime, the demand for small, accurately manufactured plastic parts is growing.

PEP microPEP has built its culture and infrastructure around understanding and delivering on its customers demanding micro molding challenges. Past projects include:

  • Ø130 micron microfluidic orifices held to +/-3.75 microns
  • Micro fluidic channels as shallow as 30 microns
  • Clean room molded micro lens center to center true position accuracy to 4 microns
  • 1.6mm posts w/undercut held to <+/-13 microns on dental components
    • No parting line
  • Complex micro-sized features on critical drug delivery device components
  • Textured 3 dimensional micro fluidic features for medical diagnostic devices

Manufacturing small requires the ability to measure even smaller. PEP microPEP’s entire Quality platform is based on having its finger on the pulse of its critical molding processes (click here to learn more about PEP microPEP’s Quality Assurance department). Micron-sized shifts are detected and understood so that the millionth part molded passes the same rigorous standards that early production parts did.

For plastics small components done right and on time, over and over and over, contact PEP microPEP. It’s what we deliver.
