Mold Craft presented ± .0001” precision tolerance micro molding of POK parts weighing only .007 grams. We were molding a 100µm Filter Screen, using a 2 cavity, 3 plate micro mold with one “A” side and 2 “B” sides featuring .004” x .004” shut offs and .002” radii. The Micro Mold will be running on the energy and cost efficient Wittmann Battenfeld MicroPower 15t precision press featuring a rotary platen, EOAT and robot with camera for optimized performance in Mold Craft’s Booth.
Mold Craft, Inc. has been Designing & Building Molds since 1964 and will be demonstrating micro molding starting with DFM. Our free DFM Criteria Check List is a typeable .pdf format document available at NPE 2018 that will help you describe your perfect micro mold. Return the completed document available at NPE 2018 and we’ll respond with information and advice on moldability and how to manufacture. Our complete design package includes models, assembly views, bill of materials and prints with fully documented dimensions and tolerances for the micro mold.
With Tight Tolerance manufacturing of ± .0001”, using the latest CNC, Wire EDM and Sinker EDM equipment. Mold Craft offers In House Sampling to provide you with preliminary process development temperatures and pressures. It means “perfection driven” parts – the first time.

Mold Craft also had personnel in the Sodick booth where we were molding a PPSU 100µm filter screen micro parts using an eight cavity mold in the LP20VRE vertical Molding Machine with Two Stage Plunger System.
Molding with PPSU using the LP20VRE vertical Micro Molding Machine that has been engineered to be the most precise machine on the market, using a two-stage plunger injection unit without a check ring and a true hybrid precision clamping mechanism. Sodick will use robotics to unload molded parts from the machine on the NPE 2018 show floor.
