The definition of what is considered “Micro” varies—but it generally refers to part size or part feature sizes that are a fraction of traditional parts. Matrix Tool has built a reputation on building extremely high precision, complex injection molds. It was a natural transition for us to pursue Micro Tool Building and Molding capabilities once our customers’ product became increasingly smaller with tighter tolerances.
To be a Micro Injection Molder you have to be willing to step out of the conventional paradigm of modern injection molding technology. Imagine molding 11 parts from a single pellet of resin—then imagine trying to mold that part with a conventional injection molding press. It can’t be done effectively.
