What kind of parts do we mold?

We have been working in a variety of industries and our plastic moulded components scatter across automotive, electronics, healthcare, furniture and defense industries. Products range from plastic gears to caps and closures, plastic housings for electronics and even reverse engineered injection moulded parts.

What are the specs?

Tolerances

Micromolds CNC machining can maintain +/- 0.03mm tolerance and depending on plastic material specifications injected polymer tolerance can be +/- 0.04mm.

Surface finish

We can use EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) with multiple passes and in combination with other tools to reach mirror-like surface or almost any other customer requires.

Minimum wall thickness

Depending on a material chosen wall thickness can vary accordingly. Please check out material's page to learn more.

Hot or cold runner?

Here at Micromolds we use Babyplast 6/12 injection moulding machines with a wide spectrum of configurations. Thus, there is no difference for us working with hot runner moulded parts or cold runner moulds. Learn more which runners, hot or cold, are best for your project here.

What is the cost of injection moulded part?

Tooling and manufacturing costs for injection moulded parts are not so easily determined and requires careful part analysis and several input variables from customer. Thus quoting process can seem as a huge time waster, especially when dealing with several sub-contractors. 

 

This is why we believe in industry digitalization and encourage our customers to use cost transparent contracting service - our automated online quoting, where you can instantly check out costs, and compare them with different batches, surface finishes, materials or other sub-contractors' quotes.

Where are the molds produced?

We are not some Chinese mold makers - we make high quality aluminum micro moulds locally from product idea to CNC milling and surface finishing. Aluminum injection moulds are faster and cheaper to machine than steel moulds and can sufficiently pass ~200 000 cycles. Our highly skilled mechanical engineers design parts, their moulds and writes CNC code for machining every day. At our local facilities freshly milled aluminium moulds go straightly to moulding machines. This is why automated quoting is even possible.
