Small, Smaller, Smallest

from Plastics Engineering

Micromolded parts are getting dramatically smaller and more detailed. For years a PET component weighing 0.00012 grams was claimed to be the smallest micromolded plastic part in the world. It was molded by MTD Micromolding in Charlton, Massachusetts, USA (formerly Miniature Tool & Die) in 1998, and first reported in 2002. Today the “world’s smallest” is arguably an ethylene vinyl acetate ophthalmic implant for glaucoma, molded by MTD a few years ago, weighing only 0.00000313 grams. Part geometries and functional surface textures have also gotten infinitesimally fine. more
