Secrets of Success in Micro Molding
Medical-components, electronics, automotive and optic manufacturers need micro-molded products to create tinier micro components. Many new advances in micro-machining technology are enabling design and manufacturing of micro molds, which then enable micro injection molding in plastic. This is leading to worldwide advances in less invasive medical micro devices. The tiniest parts in an assembly are the ones most likely to be a challenge and are also usually the enabling component of the entire device’s form, fit, and function. THY Precision provides solutions to the challenge of micro molding manufacture.
1. Mold Flow Analysis
Because micro molds and prototype parts can be costly in their development cycle, micro mold-flow analysis provides insurance that a particular design will fill with the intended material. An all too common assumption when comparing parts made by conventional molding to micro molding is that micro parts can be filled with the same software and same modeling methods.
2. Injection Molding Process
Micro molding machines must be able to inject very small shots and keep the residence time in the barrel to a minimum. Specialized screws, nozzles, and auxiliary equipment are also needed to provide the level of precision of filling, handling, degating, measuring, and assembling these tiny components.
To assemble those tiny components is not an easy job. THY Precision has automatic assembly system that ensures the precision and consistency of our partially assembled products.
From design to manufacture and assembly, THY Precision can provide professional and complete services. Please contact us if you are looking for a micro injection molding manufacturer, and we will be glad to serve you.

Micro injection molding is one of the most commonly used production processes for plastics. Besides the use of medical, optics and electronics, micro molding can also be applied in automotive industry.
Let's see how micro molding is applied in automotive industries:
1. Components under-the-hood
Recently, many under-the-hood components that manufacturers formerly made from metal have been transitioned to plastic. For these applications, robust polymers such as ABS, Nylon, and PET are common. Manufacturers now make parts such as cylinder head covers and oil pans using injection molding. This method offers lower weights compared to metal parts.
2. Exterior Components
Injection molding is an established process for many exterior automotive components, including fenders, grilles, bumpers, door panels, floor rails, light housings, and more.
3. Interior Components
Manufacturers also produce many automotive interior parts using automotive plastic injection molding. They include instrumentation components, interior surfaces, dashboard faceplates, door handles, glove compartments, air vents, buttons, switches and more. They also use injection molding for producing decorative plastic elements.
Micro injection molding offers a viable solution for the mass production of high-quality injection automotive parts from a broad range of polymers. In the automotive industry, where qualities such as consistency and safety are of utmost importance, automotive plastic injection molding is an important manufacturing process. THY Precision can also provide ODM, OEM manufacture of micro automotive molding. Feel free to contact us, and we'll be pleased to serve you.
