In the February issue of Plastics Engineering, industry leaders weigh in on how the advances in medical micro-molding have made it easier than ever to produce tiny devices that can change patients’ lives.
“We see more incorporation of pharmaceuticals in micro parts, smart technology, point-of-care technology, etc. Parts are getting miniaturized to allow for patient comfort, improving performance and efficiency, and even convenience. Micro-overmolding can present opportunities for devices that would otherwise require secondary operations, including gluing that can cause failure. The ability to mold a device as one single unit while improving cost efficiency is a great opportunity for many medical device products.”Patrick Haney, R&D Engineer, MTD Micro Molding
