Microfluidics – Case Study

micro mold

Microfluidic devices are designed to control extremely tiny droplets of fluid such as blood, drugs, or gel-like fluids. Tiny channels, v-grooves, holes, and valves are accurately positioned on tiny chips and surfaces to push, pull, pressurize, or atomize these fluids in order to give the microfluidic device the required functionality. Key to the efficient working… Read More »

Insulin Delivery – Case Study

micro insulin delivery

The manufacture of insulin devices requires knowledge not just of the likely drug interactions with the body of the device, but also with the other polymers, metals, membranes, and drive mechanisms incorporated in the device allowing it to function repeatedly and with the required longevity. In most Insulin delivery programs, the annual disposable volumes are… Read More »

Endoscopes – Case Study

Micro Engineering Solutions

Endoscopes less than 20mm in size typically have between 10 and 20 very tiny, working (sliding, gear-meshing, and tight tolerance stack-up) components. MES manufactures such devices in stages ensuring that the initial designs can be micro-machined until the assembly nuances are worked out. Surface and metrology data (and in-depth tolerance stack-up analysis) are established using… Read More »

Ophthalmic/Intraocular Implants – Case Study


Due to the fact that they are inserted into the extremely sensitive eye area, ophthalmic and intraocular implants present huge challenges in respect of parting lines and surface finish because of the stringent comfort (compliance) required for them to be worn or implanted. As anyone who wears contact lenses knows, it is extremely bothersome to… Read More »

Thin Wall High Aspect Ratio Micro Molding

Micro Engineering Solutions

The CEO of MES, Donna Bibber, has created a powerpoint presentation of various thin-walled, high aspect ratio, micro-molded medical and pharmaceutical device images for you to view. When working with these parts, some of the important things to remember are: • Ultra precision tooling is required to allow extremely balanced flow, which is critical to… Read More »
