Precision Molding Services

Precision injection molding is offered by Medbio, Grand Rapids, MI. Precision molding begins with good part design. Selecting the right resin can be crucial to precision molding. Important Factors include expected service life, service environment, sterilization method, relation to other parts, and tolerances and form. Equally important, is choosing a manufacturing partner with experience in processing all grades of thermoplastics resins.
