Micromolding is a thermal form-change method for creating very small, 3-dimensional, components having smaller features and dimensional tolerances.
Micromolding is not a slightly altered version of macromolding, made to fit the micro world. The materials we use behave very differently in the micro world, requiring specialized expertise and technologies.
The micromolding world is governed by principles of scalability which state that as the physical size of an object is reduced, the volume and surface area are also reduced, but not linearly with the size. Therefore, the same materials used in macromolding applications yield far different results when scaled to micromolding applications.
