The Mold Craft booth ran a two-cavity micro mold using POK resin in a Wittmann Battenfeld MicroPower 15-ton press, and the Sodick/Plustech booth ran an eight-cavity micro mold using PPSU (solvay poly- phenylsulfone). Both molds had 0.004-inch by 0.004-inch shutoffs (100 micron) and 0.013-inch and 0.008-inch wall sections with a part weight of less than 0.007 grams in POK and 0.0095 grams in PPSU. Mold Craft managed both R&D projects from the part design to mold-cavity design and finally processing. The shop also introduced its Production Quality Prototype (PQP) product offering that provides engineering-quality sample parts in a prototype micro mold and provides proof of concept for customers developing a new part intended to run in a micro mold. This is a parts-to-print process for projects using any engineering resin.
