Micro molding refers to injection molding of parts weighing a fraction of a gram, and it is becoming a sizeable opportunity for molders who serve the electronics, medical, telecommunications, and automotive market sectors. Some of the new poppy-seed-sized parts being molded today include gears and gear housings, hearing aids, molded interconnect devices (MIDs), bobbins, switches, sensors, lenses, catheters, gaskets, rollers, and fiber-optic components. These minute parts have even tinier critical features, such as pinholes, pins, channels, and snap-fit latches.
Features Adapting injection molding to the concept of Industry 4.0 is gaining momentum. At this show you’ll see that the interconnected, integrated “factory of the future” is almost here.
