Scientific Molding Maximizes Precision Repeatability

Scientific molding is a specialized manufacturing process that focuses on precision repeatability.  Maintaining exacting tolerances is critical in the manufacture of any medical device-from cavity to cavity, first shot to final run.  Our sophisticated calibration tools, including in-mold sensors, allow us to check for consistency in every part we produce.  This state-of-the-art monitoring process allows us to determine optimal fill speed, pack time, and pressure - eliminating guesswork and dramatically improving precision repeatability and efficient runtime.  We also have well-established relationships to provide economical offshore tooling options.
