Micro injection molding is a molding technique used to create plastic components with shot weights ranging from 1 to 0.1 grams and tolerances ranging from 10 to 100 microns. This molding technique allows for the most precise and accurate production of complex small geometries. The basic concept of the micro injection molding technique is similar to that of conventional injection molding. The injection molding machine includes a micro injection unit in this method. Some of the factors that impact machine and process technology when it comes to the manufacture of micro components are short dwell time, homogeneous material preparation prior to molding, low shear stress on the polymer melt, precision injection and ejection, and dimension accuracy. Micro injection molding is an accurate molding method for producing extremely small parts and components. Micro molding is very useful in the medical sector, where micro molded components can be utilized in surgical devices and other uses.

Automobile demand is increasing significantly in countries such as India, China, South Korea, and Japan. This is fueling demand for the Micro Injection Moulded Plastic Industry in the automotive sector. The automotive sector has become increasingly concerned with component weight and size reduction in order to enhance fuel efficiency and optimize performance. Micro injection molding is ideal for miniature automotive applications because it allows for the production of small, complex plastic parts with high precision and repeatability. Micro injection molded plastic components in the automotive industry are commonly used in connectors, detectors, switches, microfluidic devices, micro-optics, and other critical parts used in electronic systems, lighting, interior controls, and other safety features.
Micro injection molding machines are highly accurate, minimal manufacturing machines. They are generally more costly than standard injection molding machines due to their sophisticated features, precise controls, and unique tooling requirements. The initial investment can be substantial, particularly for high-end machines with advanced capabilities. Micro injection molding machines may consume more energy than standard injection molding machines due to the need for precise control over small amounts of material and faster cycle times. All of these factors can limit the expansion of the market.
