At Plastec West / MD&M West, February 7-9, in Anaheim, California, M.R. Mold & Engineering will partner with Wittmann Battenfeld to showcase micro-mold making and molding, using a MicroPower 15/10 to manufacture a punctum plug from two-component liquid silicone rubber supplied by Momentive. The class 101 four-cavity micro-mold is self-contained with two bottom plates and one top plate which each rotate on the machine’s rotary table.  A robot removes the parts to a video scanner for inspection.

The MicroPower features a two-step injection unit consisting of a screw and a plunger that produces a shot volume ranging from 1.2 to 4 cm³. It injects a thermally homogeneous melt, resulting in premium-quality parts from stable production with short cycle times.

Also in the booth, M.R. Mold will showcase a one-drop cold runner with a universal base that was specifically designed for prototyping to prove out demolding and automation prior to manufacturing a production mold.
