Miniature molding is a process used to manufacture small parts. Products can be created that are so small; they are barely visible to the naked eye. They can even weigh less than a gram and still have precise design properties.

Miniature Molding Characteristics

As technology advances, equipment tends to miniaturize. Therefore, there is a continual need for smaller parts. Miniature molding is beneficial to fields such as medical, electronic and telecommunications because their equipment continues to lessen in size.

Miniature molding is available from many different injection molding companies. You can design products in any shape, color, or material. You can make your products simple in design, or with more complex configurations.

Most miniature parts are made from plastic. Plastic is a desirable material because it is low in cost and is also versatile. Molding miniature parts versus larger parts will also save you money overall on tooling and materials.
