Makuta Micro Molding provides prototyping services for micro-sized parts including parts that can have features as small as 20 microns and hold tolerances to +/- 5 microns.
Initial design prototypes (rapid prototyping) can be provided as 3D printed prototypes using state-of-the art equipment available to Makuta through Sansyu Finetool.
Second-stage prototyping is performed using our mold prototyping system (see below) that combines hardened steel core, cavity and insert sets that are capable of being used in both low-volume prototyping and long-run injection molding production. The cavity can also be used once the design has been frozen.
Additionally, we use mold-flow 3D software to prove out design feasibility and run simulations to balance the runners in the components.
Use of our prototype mold bases which are used together with inserts for your product can cut lead time by up to 50% and helps reduce tooling production costs.
From concept, design and rapid prototyping, to precision tooling and production, Makuta can help tackle the toughest micro part challenges and meet your manufacturing quality, delivery and cost-containment requirements. We look forward to the opportunity to discuss your micro part requirements. Call (317) 642-0001 or email us at email@example.com.
Makuta Inc.’s micro injection molding prototype bases are made with hardened steel core, cavity and insert sets.
