What is micro-moulding? Part size is one of the obvious elements of micro-moulding, but is it the only element? Or is it simply defined by the size of the injection press? What about precision, or does the part just have to be small? At H&P Moulding we believe true micro-moulding is much more than size or machine.
It relates to a part that is measured in microns and is no bigger than 0,005 gram. Or, it can be a very small feature on a normal sized part. Micro-features include extremely thin walls, micro-fluid channels or holes. Both micro-parts and micro-features require very small tolerances, ranging from 0,01 mm or tighter. They also typically have complex geometries. Being able to manufacture these parts consistently and repeat ably in both prototype volumes and high production volumes (millions+ parts per year) at affordable prices is H&P Moulding’s strength.
These parts can be found in micro-electronics, phones, telecommunications, surgical tools, hearing aids, medical devices, measure and control equipment, connectors and more.
