At Axxicon, we’re all about teamwork. When a customer comes to us for help with product development, we work closely with their engineering department to provide the support they need, without taking over the design process. Our team of experienced engineers and designers offer expertise in areas such as injection molding, tooling, and production, and we use that expertise to help the customer optimize their design for performance, manufacturability, and cost-effectiveness. We work collaboratively with the customer’s team to identify potential design issues and come up with solutions that work for everyone.
By extending the customer’s own engineering department with our expertise, we can help them to achieve their goals more efficiently, while also ensuring that their team retains control of the design process.
The development of a successful polymer microfluidic chip or consumable starts with a good and reliable design, suitable for volume manufacturing and the shortest possible time to market. Our team of engineers, manufacturing- and moulding specialists can co-develop with you and implement all knowledge into your design.
We aim to be part of your development team as soon as possible! We know precision injection molding, we know precision manufacturing, and we know how to optimize your design accordingly. We like to help you during the design of your product, shaping it towards a solid end-product because we know manufacturing and moulding come with certain design rules. Our engineers know the limits of our machenery to the bone and will help you to design in a way it is ready for manufacturing, but more importantly; ready for high volume production!
At Axxicon our microfluidic experts have knowledge about finding the right bonding solution for your consumable or microfluidic chip. This is an important choice because it could lead to implement design features needed for the bonding method. During our DFM phase we can provide you with input regarding possibilities for your design and explore a route to verify the best options.
Axxicon has a broad history in replicating microstructures. During the booming era of CD and DVD Axxicon was one of the leading manufacturers for optical media moulds in the world for more than 30 years. The technology and know-how gained from that period has opened a path for making a succes with microfluidics and micro optics.
The products for these markets, such as microfluidic chips or optical lens arrays, require the same high quality, tight tolerances and accurate features like the ones we have made for years. For over 75 years Axxicon has build up the knowledge to know what is important for a functional product and are well capable to bring it towards the market.
