Plastic Micromolding Solutions
Small is Small!
Stack Plastics is a leader in the highly-specialized field of micromolding. Micromoulding is a tight tolerance molding process used to manufacture very small parts and components. We have the capabilities to produce miniscule parts with intricate details and features that would be impossible to manufacture by other means.
Micromoulding is extremely useful in the medical industry, where micromolded parts are used in surgical devices and other applications. The micromolding process is also very popular in electronics and other industries, where trends continue toward "smaller is better" manufacturing.
Stack Plastics’ Micromolding Solutions
Stack Plastics’ expertise in tight tolerance injection molding and our extensive knowledge of micromoulding materials allow us to push the envelope of polymer science.
Micromolding is one of the more difficult injection molding processes. By nature, the polymers that are used have "large" molecules. Working with these molecules in the minute dimensions required in micromolding can be exceptionally tricky, as they tend to behave differently than they normally do in larger applications. And, while all injection molding processes require tight tolerances, this is especially true in micromolding; even the slightest dimensional variation can render parts of this size unusable.
Due to the unique and specialized nature of the micromolding process, we must engineer new micromolding solutions for almost every project we undertake. The micromolding of very small parts naturally requires very small molds and tools. Because some mold pins, tool parts, etc., are just a few thousandths of an inch in diameter, even the metals we use in our molds become very fragile. Stack Plastics works with special micromoulding sources in the manufacture of our molds and tools to ensure high quality and durability.
