From fitness trackers and smartwatches to AR/VR headsets, designers are continuously searching for innovative methods to reduce system activity and power consumption. At the same time an IC or microchip can function as an oscillator, amplifier, counter, timer or microprocessor for these devices. The companies listed here provide solutions for micro molding, micro batteries and sealing. Visit our WT | Wearable Technologies Conference 2018 USA in San Francisco on July 11-12 and discover the innovative technologies presented by these companies first hand.
Micro molding, used by many medical device OEMs, is the tiny-scale molding form of injection molding that requires developing a cavity to match the shape of the part you want to make, sort of like the plastic molding that makes Lego bricks. Tiny, high precision plastic molding goes into micro molding for medical devices. For 30 years Accumold has been working with OEMs that require complex micro-sized electronic components and connectors. Markets served by Accumold are: Micro electronics, Medical micro molding, Micro polymer optics, Emerging technologies and Automotive electronics. Their processes include insert molding, clean room molding and 2-shot molding.
