Micro Material: These medical components are made from Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP).
Micro Features: 0.004″ (0.1016mm) wall required for this overmolded part. The final part outer diameter measures 0.047″ (1.1938mm).
Description: These overmolded micro electrodes are used for a cardiac electrophysiology procedure. The tool had to be built to compensate for slight electrode variability. The positioning of the hand-loaded electrodes into the tool was critical and was completed with vacuum pens and microscopes.
Are you developing an overmolded micro medical device?
Talk to MTD.
MTD specializes in overmolding—a process for molding two or more materials together to form a component. We offer insert molding and multi-shot (or multi-material) molding. Because all our services are under one roof, our engineers can efficiently resolve problems and challenges for the most complex overmolding design.
Our in-house CT scanning capabilities allow us to analyze overmolded parts with metal or different densities of plastic materials, and to accurately measure internal features.
We also excel at cost-effective, high-volume production through robotics and automation. Our custom micro medical device assembly solutions and packaging is the last step in producing your micro medical device.
