Moulding

Moulding components in resin at Sub Micron involves carefully pouring resin into a prefabricated mould tool.  This can and is often done by hand, or injected using various machine tools. The process gives the same result as Encapsulation, but the method can be slightly different.

A similar process called ‘over-moulding’ refers to the process traditionally called Injection Moulding, using Thermo plastics. Injection Moulding/Over-moulding is not something we carry out at Sub Micron, although we can cater for it, through a local outsourced partner.
