Hybrid Tooling Technologies and Standardization for the Manufacturing of Inserts for Micro Injection Molding
2007 (English)In: Proceedings of the Society of Plastics Engineers Annual Technical Conference, Society of Plastics Engineers Incorporated , 2007, 2946-2950 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper is based on the European Platform's activities within the 4M Network of Excellence "Multi-Material Micro Manufacturing". To overpass limitations of the current existing micro tooling capabilities, a new generation of micro hybrid tooling technologies for micro replication was developed. A metrological approach was applied to standardize the employed tooling processes (micro milling, μEDM, laser micromachining, electrochemical μ-milling). The micro tools were then tested with different polymers (PP, PP + nano fillers, PC, COC). The paper provides a comparison of these technologies concerning obtainable feature sizes, surface finish, and aspect ratios of both micro tools and micro molded parts.
