Isometric Micro Molding
Micro-Manufacturing Services for Medical Devices and Components
Isometric Micro Molding offers micro-manufacturing and micro-injection moulding services for high-precision medical applications.
For more than 30 years, Isometric Micro Molding has been a strategic and trusted partner in micro injection molding and micro automated assemblies with unparalleled, vertically integrated micro manufacturing capabilities. Today, we are the largest and fastest-growing medical-focused micro molder in North America.
Since we work in microns every day, we serve high-precision medical markets such as diabetes, ENT, ophthalmic, cardiovascular, neurovascular, orthopedic, drug delivery–and more.
At Isometric, we provide a complete end-to-end solution for high-precision component design and micro mold manufacturing–all in-house. Our micro solutions are created through Isometric’s 100% in-house processes of: Micro 3D Printing, Micro Tooling, Micro Molding, Micro Automated Assembly and CT Scanning.
In addition, we mold all thermoplastics, long-term implantable, bioresorbable, fluoropolymers, and API resins. From small parts (<6”) with micro features and/or tight tolerances to micro-sized parts smaller than a pellet of resin, we provide unique, creative, and robust miniaturization solutions. In fact, our customers tell us frequently, “I didn’t know that was possible!”
Isometric successfully creates components through extreme thin wall molding, tight tolerances, complex geometries, insert molding, overmolding, and two-shot molding. We can also take these molded parts and assemble through a large variety of secondary operations with our world-class micro automation assemblies, holding positional accuracy down to one micron. Our micro assembly solutions reduce bioburden and labor while 100% inspecting critical features and providing our customers Industry 4.0 data.

Parts 6” or Smaller
Isometric Micro Molding has a long history of precision molding of small parts 6” or smaller with micro features, tight tolerances, and /or thin walls. Our team of experts successfully manufactures extreme thin wall features and/or entire molded components, as well as expertise in sharps, which includes needle arrays.
Micro Sized Parts (smaller than a resin pellet)
At Isometric, we talk microns everyday. In fact, the smallest part Isometric has molded is 1/1,000th the size of a pellet of resin and we are currently working on 3 parts that will be 1/2,000th the size of a pellet of resin, which is 2,000 parts from 1 pellet of resin for scale. The smallest hole that Isometric can manufacture is 0.0007″ (17.78 microns) in diameter.
