Micro Material: Carbon-Filled PEEK thermoplastic
Micro Features: The component is overmolded over a .031″ diameter stainless steel rod.
Description: Micro overmolding with Carbon-Filled PEEK with a 400° F mold temperature present many challenges. As a micro medical device manufacturer, MTD Micro Molding consistently pushes new materials and new technologies to the limit. Micro overmolding and PEEK micromolded products are the result of years of quality control and building expertise in the PEEK micro molding field.

Medical micro injection molding is what we do. And all we do.
We’ve made millions of micromolded medical parts. We have years of expertise in problem-solving the most challenging micro part designs, including ones that require high-temperature micro injection molding with materials like PEEK (polyether ether ketone) and other thermoplastic polymers.
PEEK is a permanent resin popular for orthopedic and sports medicine applications requiring strength and durability. Successfully micromolding PEEK, however, presents several challenges.
For example, precise temperature control is critical so the part can be molded and de-molded without distortion. We understand how to optimize the polymer’s flow path and maintain quality control throughout the process. We’re also experienced in overmolding and “undermolding” with PEEK.
