Product category: Insert moulding

Micro Mold Rotor Pinion

Description:This is a two-part assembly. The first part (the black ring) is a magnetic material molded in a plastic compound containing metal. The second part is a partial glass filled Polysulfone. We take the black ring and mold around and through it to create the assembly. Tolerances are very tight. This part must be individually packaged for protection.
Material: Polysulfone with Glass
Material Segment: Military & Aerospace
Core Group: Micro Mold® Parts

About us

Company details

Accumold is a high-tech manufacturer of precision micro, small and lead frame injection molded plastic components. Utilizing processes developed from our Micro-Mold® technology, we design, build and produce unique molds and parts efficiently for a variety of markets that include Micro Electronics, Micro Optics and Medical.

 

Products/Services:

Micro-Mold®

Micro-sized parts are produced in our own micro-molding machines, utilizing processes that we started our business with over 25 years ago. Our Micro-Molded parts range from about 2 cm in size to parts measured in microns. These components often have complex geometry and very tight tolerances.

Accumold builds specialized molding machines for this unique capability. The machines are engineered to handle volumes from prototypes to 5,000,000 or more parts per year while maintaining consistent, precise tolerances that are unique in the industry.

Small Molded Parts

Small or Miniature Parts maintain the same precision and quality as our Micro-Molded parts do, they are simply a bit larger, ranging in size from about 2cm to about 7cm in diameter or up to a one ounce part weight. These parts can have micro-sized features also measured in microns. Using Accumold's modifications to our presses ranging from 12 ton to 35 ton, these parts are made with minimal waste and fast cycle times.

Many small parts are developed as result of the combined efforts of the customer's design engineers and Accumold's tool designers, saving material costs and assembly labor.

Lead Frame / Insert Molding

Handling, inserting or assembling micron-sized parts during manufacture can be an issue. Labor-intensive manual handling is expensive and can damage or contaminate parts. Robotics may not have small enough actuators. Accumold’s tooling and automation systems for lead frame molded parts and insert applications are second to none.

Using Accumold's unique technology, we can mold plastic on and around different types of metal, plastic, fabric or other materials. Some of these processes produce completed parts while others are ready for further processing by the customer.

Facilities:

All our tooling, molding, packaging and metrology are done under our roof in our 82,000 square foot facility located near Des Moines, IA. With 15 acres of property, our plans include expanding to 200,000 square feet. We are ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 certified. ISO 13485 planned in 2013. Our plant is completely climate controlled and has three 100K clean rooms and two 10K clean rooms.
