Trust PDC to provide the precision you need.
Cardiovascular devices often require plastic parts that are both extremely small and require precise molding. Because of this, device manufacturers need a company they can rely on to provide precision micro molded parts that are of consistent high quality. At PDC, we pride ourselves on providing device manufacturers with the components they need on a scalable level.
For more than 30 years, cardiac device manufacturers have relied on PDC to provide them with the micro molding expertise they need to create products that are crucial to patient care. We have provided parts for a broad range of cardiac devices and products.
- Access, Delivery & Closure Systems
- Neurostimulator Leads
- Tissue Biopsy
- Imaging Systems
When it comes to cardiac components, material choice is critical.
Many of the compounds used in micro molding are known as thermoplastic resins. These compounds are highly engineered, 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, and our state-of-the-art automated facility is modern, integrated, and dedicated to the medical device and life science industries.
PDC offers cardiovascular device components made from high-performance materials. Whether our clients need components made to offer strength and rigidity, or ones that are ultra-thin and flexible, we have the necessary knowledge and capabilities.

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 cardiovascular devices that are manufactured using micro molding capabilities include:
- Stents: Stents are small, wire-mesh tubes that support and hold open blocked or narrowed blood vessels. Micro molding is used to manufacture the small plastic parts that make up stents, including end connectors and other critical components.
- Catheters: Micro molding is used to manufacture small plastic components for catheters, such as the hub, shaft, and distal tip.
- Heart valve replacements: Micro molding is used to manufacture small plastic components for heart valve replacements, including the valve leaflets and the supporting frame.
PDC’s vertically integrated micro molding facility enables technologies for developing a wide range of cardiovascular devices.
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.
As pioneers in breakthrough technologies, PDC proudly manufactures products for the healthcare and life sciences industries that consistently meet exceedingly high requirements.
