The small, but elite, club of custom micro injection molders in the United States has a new member.
Isometric Micromolding of New Richmond, Wisconsin, is now rapidly ramping up its capabilities in micro injection molding, says Donna Bibber, the company’s VP of Business Development.
Bibber is well known in the micro field. She was a founding partner of MTD Micro Molding in Charlton, Massachusetts, and has frequently spoken to SPE groups about her work in micro product development work as CEO of Micro Engineering Solutions.
Parts range from 5.0mm to 2.0mm. Resins are polycarbonate, acetal, HIPS. (Isometric)
“We established Isometric Micromolding in 2013 from scratch, added an ERP system, ISO 13485, scanner ($1MM of metrology equipment), two cleanrooms, one class 7 and one class 8,” says Bibber. The company is adding two micro molding machines this year, bringing its total to seven.
Isometric calls itself the largest medical-focused micro molder in the U.S, serving the intraocular, vascular, neuromodulation, orthopedic, and drug delivery device markets.
Isometric Companies, Inc., a privately held corporation formally announced the micro molding business last week. Isometric Tool & Design, Inc., a precision injection mold and automation fabrication company, was established in 1990. Isometric has 60 employees and 33,000 sq ft of manufacturing space.
Bibber says that vertical integration is one of the strengths of the new company.
“We have 100 percent in-house services of tooling, molding, automation, and CT scanning–all specific to micro molding and very high precision components.”
Isometric President Michael Hudalla comments: “One of the largest, publicly traded medical device companies in the world traveled the globe in search of a micro molding firm capable of singular micron tolerance molding and selected Isometric Micro Molding, Inc. because of our precision tooling and transparent customer service- both critical to medical device design history filing.”
