Medical Plastic Molding

Medical plastic molding is a subset of injection molding that involves the use of plastic materials that are approved for medical use. These materials include, but are not limited to, PEEK, Pebax, PEI, and other thermoplastic resins. Companies that provide medical plastic molding services can often provide insight as to what the best material is for a given application, and can make suggestions to their customers based on this expertise.

Because medical devices often require very small parts and/or components made of different materials fused into a single piece, medical plastic molding may also involve micro-molding, overmolding, and/or insert molding processes.

Medical devices can mean the difference between life and death for patients, so it is important that their parts and components are manufactured to match the exact specifications of their designs. Medical plastic molding requires extreme precision and tight dimensional tolerances in order to deliver products that meet these high standards. An unintentional variation of even a millimeter can lead to catastrophe.
