Makuta Micro Molded Parts

Makuta's micro molding capabilities are used in industries from office automation to musical instruments. Our wide variety of expertise, from the development of components for medical devices to micron tolerance guitar picks, provides our customers with solutions that overlap from one industry to another. The unique characteristics and technologies of micro molded parts that we have developed can be adapted and applied to most any industry. Our capabilities include:


Makuta is part of the $80 million dollar Sansyu Group of companies, the oldest and largest micro molding and micro-mold making company in the world. Sansyu has been the leader in micro precision since 1942, when the company began production of miniature clock components. Throughout the 60’s and 70’s production shifted towards high quality, precision plastic components as the markets for these products grew within the automotive and electronics industries.

Two-Shot Micro Molding

Makuta utilizes the proprietary Sansyu mold shuttling system of multi material micro injection molding. This system was created solely by Sansyu and is in use only within the Sansyu Group of companies. This system is designed specifically for Sumitomo 15 and 30 ton machines. It allows for two different grades of material and/or two different colors to be used with in the same cycle.
