You need to understand the basic design approach and really bottom out what you can and cannot do, as when micro molding, even the smallest design change can be catastrophic and completely derail a project.
Measurement should be a central consideration in every quote issued by a micro molder. If a micro molder can make the steel micro tool, and subsequently mold the part, sure as night follows day it will need to be measured.
Microfluidics is an extremely dynamic niche today, and will continue for many years to cement the importance of micro molding as a technology used to drive innovation in the medical sector in such applications as drug delivery devices, implants, and diagnostics
Perhaps like no other, the field of microelectronics exemplifies the drive towards miniaturization, the obvious reduction in size of everyday household appliances and cell phones showing the extent to which products containing electronic components have been reduced in size.
