Molding, in all its forms, is a complex, precise and highly technical procedure. As an experienced manufacturing partner, we take great pride in our engineering team’s ability to utilize DFMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) and Mold Flow Analysis to ensure the final molded product meets your exact needs. Our experienced engineers and technicians will anticipate and prevent potential obstacles to reduce overall lead times.
Your program: whether medical or consumer, complex or simple, multiple parts or a single part, low volume or high volume, we want to help make your program a success. We offer customized validations -- from Level 1 (meets print) to Level 3 (full medical IQ/OQ/PQ).
MME Molding Overview
Our horizontal or vertical injection molding capabilities encompass overmolding, insert molding, rotary two-shot, and other techniques utilizing thermoplastic, LSR (Liquid Silicone Rubber), and urethane's. We provide added value by moving assembly operations to molding cells to minimize costs.
From highly engineered resins to commodity plastics, our team has the knowledge and experience to understand the advantages and challenges each material poses, and can make recommendations for cost effective alternatives.
Our presses run as small as 10-ton and large as 750-ton; we manufacture parts ranging from the size of a dime to the size of a laptop.
MME group is ISO 13485:2016, ITAR and FDA registered for medical, consumer and government contract manufacturing and assembly. In addition to non-clean room space, we have 35,000 sq. ft. of class 8 clean room molding and assembly capacity.
Liquid Silicone Rubber Molding
Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) molding is the process used to create robust, pliable, high-precision, high-quality parts in large numbers.
Liquid Silicone injection molding produces parts that are highly water repellent and resistant. As such, coupled with the precise nature of their sizing, they’re ideal for use as seals, membranes, electrical connectors, and a variety of other medical, commercial and domestic applications.
The process itself requires a large range of tooling knowledge and execution, unique equipment and mechanical components, all of which MME group has onsite. This capacity to provide LSR design, tooling, molding and full assembly services in one location makes us the ideal LSR injection molding manufacturing partner.
On the surface, it seems that plastic injection molding is a relatively simple process. Molten liquid plastic is inserted to a specifically shaped mold. Once the plastic has cooled and hardened, the mold is removed to reveal the finished product.
The truth of the matter is, plastic molding is a highly complex and technically precise procedure, involving carefully regulated levels of heat and pressure to achieve the desired result.
At MME group we have the technical expertise and experience to provide the solution to any or all of your custom plastic manufacturing requirements.
