With the pressure on design engineers to deliver smaller, lighter, and more cost-effective components, many are turning to micro injection molding for support. Micro-optics present greater challenges, given their associated requirements for tighter tolerances and surface finishes. In today’s manufacturing environment, micro-molders are developing new techniques to meet these challenges.

This presentation will explore the advantages of partnering with a micro injection molder early in the design phase, focusing on micro-optics for wearable devices across many markets. These application fields include devices for fitness and medical sensing, as well as emerging technologies.

Rick Brown of Accumold will highlight specific design and production challenges that micro-molders have seen and how they have been addressed. Brown will also cover some secondary operations that can add value to a molding operation. The webinar will conclude with a live Q&A.

Who should attend:
Purchasers, researchers, quality controllers, and all others involved in the various applications or wearable micro-optics. This may include medical, consumer, and defense devices. This webinar will provide a current look at the wearables market and will highlight concerns relevant to both developers and end users.
