Injection moulding process development and mould validation

Moulding processes have to be developed for tight tolerance parts such as microfluidic consumables. It’s an iterative process where toolmaking and process development go hand in hand.

The replication of architectures with dimensions of a few hundred nanometers up to a few millimetres requires dedicated moulding processes.  Axxicon is specialized in developing those especially injection compression moulding processes.

The moulds and production processes are validated prior to production of parts. The Inspection of the parts is carried out using the latest vision and touch probe machines located in temperature controlled areas. The equipment is calibrated and can measure to sub-micron accuracy

Injection Moulding – Volume Production

Axxicon has all the necessary resources to carry out development projects from initial design through development phases and on to full scale production.

Turnkey solutions can be designed and implemented to improve productivity and quality,  automation to achieve reductions in manufacturing costs.

Injection moulding is just one step in the production of a microfluidic diagnostic consumable. Other process steps have to be scalable too to create low cost, high quality consumable that can conquer the market.
