MTD proudly participated in the June issue of MPO that focused on “the Miniaturization of Molding”. The cover story titled Breaking the Mold examines the trends in micro molding with a very clear final message:
“Polymers (also known as resins) are now able to last longer, endure high temperatures, and exhibit a wear resistance on par with metals. Injection molding, the typical process used for molding plastics, can produce very strong components with tight tolerances. It is also one of the most cost-effective and repeatable methods of manufacturing, as injection molding is able to generate large volumes of parts.
MTD joined the micro molding conversation with RJG Inc, Rapidwerks, Accumold, and NPI/Medical, discussing topics like designing for manufacturability, mixing molding materials, and the trend of part designs getting smaller and smaller.
