Reduced Material Degradation & Residence Time

Very often, micro injection moulding suffers from the fact that the technology requires high moulding pressures, which means that the technology solution is oversized for the manufacture of micro plastic parts. Also, the micro “injection” moulding process — using as it does electrical heater bands — is extremely energy inefficient, (running continuously at 1.7 kW/h) and such a heating process and the speed of material injection / molding pressures required leads to significant raw material degradation. Ultrasion’s ultrasound micro moulding technology uses no heaters and low molding pressures, and with material being dosed direct to the mould where it is melted in milliseconds by ultrasonic agitation, there is no material residence time, and no material degradation.
