It relates to a part that is measured in microns and is no bigger than 0.5 cubic inches. Or, it can be a very small feature on a normal sized part. Micro-features include extremely thin walls, micro-fluid channels or holes. Both micro-parts and micro-features require very small tolerances, ranging from .001 inch or tighter. They also typically have complex geometries. Being able to manufacture these parts consistently and repeatably in both prototype volumes and high production volumes (millions+ parts per year) at affordable prices is Accumold s strength.
These parts can be found in micro electronics, cell phones, telecommunications, surgical tools, hearing aids, medical devices, antennas, connectors and more. Packaging and shipping these tiny parts in lead frames and tape and reel for protection and high-speed plastic machine handling are also China’s specialties.
