Micro Molding Medical and Drug Delivery Device Case Studies
Micro molding applications have skyrocketed in medical and drug delivery applications in recent years with the increased need for condensing and adding components in tiny spaces. Using Industry 4.0 analytics drive next generation device functionality and understanding micro molding processes and single micron tolerances is critical to new miniaturized device product platforms.
This technical and solutions-based presentation includes actual case studies from DFM (Design for Manufacturing) through production using micro molding and associated tooling, assembly, and CT Scanning for:
- Wall thicknesses down to 50 microns (0.002”)
- Filter mesh of 50 microns (0.002”)
- Flushing out design criteria using 3D micro printing
- Using CT scanning to obtain quality DOE data in an expedited fashion
Overcoming technical challenges early in a micro molded program leads to the reduction of costly late-stage development project failures. This presentation will provide risk mitigation strategies to prevent these failures as early as 2 weeks into a micro molding program. Presented and collaborated with Isometric’s team of 4 subject matter experts with combined industry experience of over 95 years, these case studies represent some of the biggest historical micro molding solutions facing medical and drug delivery device companies.
