fine details in injection molding


One of the challenges in injection molding is the precise reproduction of fine structures and contour details, such as those found in microfluidic lab-on-a-chip systems. Requirements such as planarity over the entire chip design, contour-true molding of the microstructured areas and transparency of the plastic used come together here.

The combination of different possible structuring processes of the mold technology is necessary to be able to reproduce very fine required contour details in the negative of the mold inserts.

Take advantage of the KUZ's expertise in the molding of small contour details in plastic. We support you in adapting your microfluidic design to the requirements of injection molding and in tool design.

Our services for the microstructuring of plastic molded parts include:

  • Material selection
  • Feasibility studiess and creation of an injection molding manufacturing concept 
  • Molding tests of the microstructures with standardized molded parts
  • Molded part and process design
  • Mold filling simulation
  • Mold conception
  • Mold sampling
  • Prototype and low-volume production
