Macro Molding vs. Micro Molding
Macro molding is NOT the same as Micro Molding. Successful micro molding requires a different approach from part design refinement through mold design and manufacturing into process development and validation. The single most important element is the successful execution of the micro mold. Since 1998, MTD has been focused on the development of micro molding techniques and skills required for successful in house construction. Choosing the partner with the highest micro tooling capability ensures the fastest path to success for our customers.
100% Medical Device Market Dedication
MTD Micro Molding is 100% dedicated solely to the Medical Device market. We speak your language and understand your needs as they relate to product development. MTD is continuously improving our process with a medical focus to ensure your product meets the strict requirements of the medical device industry.
Most families of plastic materials, from PP to PEEK, can be used for implant applications. Some materials are chosen because of the documented evidence of testing, allowing them to be used immediately for implant applications. Choosing a material without documented history can add to the lead time of the project. MTD can assist you in selecting the best material to fit your project’s needs.
100x Magnification Inspection
Inspecting micro mold products under magnification is the only way to ensure success. At 100X magnification, every blemish and defect becomes obvious. MTD proudly displays our manufactured products under high magnification. When selecting a vendor, we encourage you to take a closer look.
