11/21/13 The Medical Design Magazines October 2013 has an article in it written by Donna Bibber.
“As demand for implantable and bioresorbable molded parts approach micro, or nano proportions grows, micromolding challenges such as small gate sizes for these shear- and moisture-sensitive materials are being addressed. With raw material costs for bioresorbables running between $3,000 and $22,000/lbs., achieving return on investment and net-zero material losses in runner (even a toothpick-sized runner is too large and too costly) and sprue scrap are critical. This article will look at how these design-engineering challenges are being addressed…..”
