Plastics News was very clearly impressed with MTD’s part photography that lined the walls of our office when they visited earlier this year.
One of the most interesting companies that I visited in 2016 was MTD Micro Molding in Charlton, Mass. The company was a finalist for our Processor of the Year award.
As the name implies, MTD specializes in micromolding. It’s a niche in the plastics industry that few companies really tackle. According to MTD’s definition, micromolded parts so small you need a microscope to see them, or parts as large as 1-inch-by-1-inch that have micro features.
The vast majority of products MTD makes would fit into a space of three square millimeters. That point really hit home on my company visit, when you realize the company’s warehouse of finished parts is basically the size of a filing cabinet.
Our team is lucky to have the support of a talented local photographer who thinks out of the box to create some amazing photographs of the parts we create. Read more about our visit to his studio here.
