The molding department will be adding two 20-ton Sodick molding presses with ancillary equipment to the existing Class 8 certified cleanrooms, […]
Micromolded parts continue to get smaller and smaller. They are also getting more precise with details nearly invisible. MTD Micro Molding successfully molded an EVA ophthalmic part that weighs in at about one-tenth the weight of a poppy seed. It is an ophthalmic implant for glaucoma treatment. This feat required MTD’s Sarix technology to make […]
MTD Micro Molding has added ultrasonic molding capability to the molding services menu with the purchase of an Ultrasion molding machine. MTD has invested in an ultrasonic molding machine, which takes a completely different approach to molding. It uses an ultrasonic horn to push the plastic pellets into the mold, which are not heated in […]

Many design engineers express interesting, but incorrect, perspectives relating to Micromolded parts. Because Micromolding is an emerging technology with a shortage of accurate information in existence, this information vacuum creates fertile ground for myths and misconceptions. Most myths relate to the designers’ prior experience with “normal” or sometimes called, “macro” injection molding.
MTD Micro Molding, a long-time manufacturer in micro-injection molding, has released an updated “Materials Menu” of materials that can be successfully micromolded to help guide engineers at medical device companies. “One of the more surprising things”, says MTD Micro Molding President Dennis Tully, “is that when discussing projects with clients and engineering groups, even those in […]
In this white paper, you’ll learn whether 3D-Printing a model will be sufficient or if a part must be hard-tooled in Micromolding. The advantages of 3D-Printing as a model and prototype-making process have excited the overall product development community. It is natural that the successes experienced by those using 3D-Printing in the “Macro-world” would inspire […]
