Injection Molded Parts

Injection molded parts are created using molten polymer or thermoplastics and sometimes using glass or metal additives. In this forming process, molten material is injected into a mold, and once cooling takes place, the material assumes the desired shape.

MW Components produces many products for various industries and applications, including biomedical products designed for implantation and others. These parts are produced using one or more forms of injection molding, including micro molding, overmolding, and insert molding. Our engineers are equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art Autodesk® Moldflow software to analyze filled or unfilled resin flow patterns in the most sophisticated micro-part designs, as well as SolidWorks CAD software to handle the most demanding design needs that your project requires. We even offer 3D prototype printing on-site using our FDM 3D printer. Whether your concern is design for manufacturability, difficult-to-process resins, or complex part geometries, we have the knowledge, experience, and team of experts to make the parts you need.

Micro Molding

MW Components produces custom plastic components and assemblies using highly precise techniques for demanding micro-molding challenges.

Manufacturing small requires the ability to measure to the smallest degree. Micro-sized shifts are detected and accounted for so that all the parts that pass through our facilities reach the same rigorous quality standards from the first part to a part made on the millionth run. We are known for our precision and consistent quality no matter your requirements or run size.

Micro Molding Capabilities & Tolerances:

  • Ø130 micron microfluidic orifices held to +/-3.75 microns
  • Microfluidic channels as shallow as 30 microns
  • Cleanroom molded microlens center to center true position accuracy to 5 microns
  • 1.6mm posts w/undercut held to <+/-13 microns on dental components (No parting line)
  • Complex micro-sized features on critical drug delivery device components
  • Textured 3-dimensional microfluidic features for medical diagnostic devices
