MTD Micro Molding works with our customers to help them select the right medical grade plastics for their applications. Over our 15 year history of micro-manufacturing, we’ve developed a measurable expertise that allows us to help our customers pick the materials that will yield the best results for their projects.
Material selection has a direct impact on the work we do. The correct material drives tolerance, dimension, strength, usability, design, speed-to-market, critical features and cost. It’s a crucial step in the manufacturability of our customers’ products and our strategic partnerships yield fantastic results.
Bioabsorbables are popular in micro medical applications as the materials can dissolve/absorb into the body, eliminating the requirement of a repeat surgery for its removal.
Thermoplastics are a great micromolding material to work with as they become pliable above a specific temperature, but return to their rigid state upon cooling.
