In this Medical Product Outsourcing (MPO) Q&A interview, MTD Micro Molding’s Patrick Haney discusses price optimization for a medtech molding project and shares his insight on design considerations and the impact of micromolding.

There are many factors to consider when requiring a molded component for a development project where money can be saved.

“Product development teams design for application first and sometimes, there are directly competing demands from the “want” and “need” lists for a design. This can make tool designs extremely complex, driving up cost and program lead time. Molders can help hash out nuances of injection molding by making a part design manufacturable and achieving more specific goals like optimizing cycle time, part cost, and throughput.”
