Count on PDC for the components you need for your advanced surgical devices.
Micro molding is a specialized type of plastic injection molding that is used to manufacture extremely small plastic parts, typically with dimensions on the order of a few millimeters or less. Some examples of advanced surgical devices that are manufactured using micro molding capabilities include:
- Laparoscopic instruments: Laparoscopic instruments are small, specialized tools that are used in minimally invasive surgery. Micro molding is used to manufacture the small plastic parts that make up these instruments, including the handles, shafts, and tips.
- Microsurgical instruments: Microsurgical instruments are specialized tools used for very small scale surgeries, such as those performed on the eye or the inner ear. Micro molding is used to manufacture the small plastic parts that make up these instruments, including the handles, shafts, and tips.
- Microcatheters: Microcatheters are small, flexible tubes that are used to deliver medications or perform diagnostic procedures in small blood vessels or other narrow spaces in the body. Micro molding is used to manufacture the small plastic parts that make up these catheters, including the hubs, shafts, and distal tips.
PDC’s vertically integrated facility enables technologies for the manufacturing of a wide range of advanced surgical devices, enabling the development of small, precise, and reliable tools for use in complex surgical procedures.
When it comes to advanced surgical components, material choice is critical.
Many of the compounds used in micro molding are known as thermoplastic resins. These compounds are highly engineered complex materials, and working with them requires advanced expertise. At PDC, we're pleased to offer our clients just that. Our team of engineers is highly knowledgeable in thermoplastic applications. In addition, our state-of-the-art automated facility is a modern contract manufacturing facility dedicated to the medical device and life science markets.
PDC design and manufactures complex components made from high-performance materials. Whether our clients need components made to offer strength and rigidity or ultra-thin and flexible, we have the necessary knowledge and capabilities.
The Medical Device & Life Science markets require quality-manufactured micro molded components.
In the biopharmaceutical and genetic engineering industries, microfluidics are a crucial component.
The healthcare and life science fields often rely on custom solid-and-film-bottom micro titer plates.
