Micro Nozzle Component

« »

Micro Material: The device is molded of Polypropylene (PP), a thermoplastic material.

Micro Features: The micro nozzle component key feature is a 60 micron diameter (0.0024″), thin walled, exit hole with micron tolerances

Description: Micromolded Pipette Tip used in DNA analysis. The micro nozzle component micro-sized tip creates micro droplets dispensed from the nozzle, applications for which are abundant in Laboratory Analytics, Pharmaceuticals, and Miniature Surgical Devices. The size of this part, along with its shape, hole diameter, and thin walls, makes it similar to other micro spray and microfluidic dispensing components, including aerosols. It is also very similar to minimally invasive surgical components such as catheter tips.

Medical micro molding is what we do. And all we do.

We’ve made millions of micromolded medical parts. We know how to produce the high quality our customers demand for applications all around the body. We have years of expertise in problem-solving the most challenging micro part designs, including ones that feature ultra-thin wall stocks, high aspect ratios, and extremely tight tolerances.

Thermoplastics are a great micromolding material to work with as they become pliable above a specific temperature, but return to their rigid state upon cooling. The challenge with thermoplastics is knowing when a seemingly minor change in the design or an alternative thermoplastic material choice can significantly impact the quality and cost-effectiveness of the part. MTD’s advanced technologies and flawless tooling execution helps customers achieve the highest results possible.
