Micro Molding Requiring Material Specification And Simulation

Prototype mold

A client approached us because they had not received acceptable parts with other prototype molding vendors. Issues included accuracy and surface finish of the 0.013” wide “teeth” features. We have extensive experience with micro-molding and molded similarly challenging features in the past, so we quoted mold fabrication and molding. There were three keys to success on this project: material selection, molding simulation and mold fabrication
