A micro mold may be used in manufacturing miniature parts. The process is called micro injection molding. Many different materials can be shaped after being injected into a specific mold design with this process.

Micro Mold Characteristics

A micro mold can be used to design products that weigh less than one gram. Some products may be so small that they are barely visible. You can design products to be simple or to have very complex configurations.

Micro mold products are commonly used in medical, automotive, electronic, telecommunication, and computer fields. As technology advances, equipment tends to miniaturize. Therefore, miniature parts are increasingly high in demand.

Micro injection molding has many advantages over standard injection molding. The cost of tooling is less expensive. Materials are also less expensive because parts are smaller.
