Molding the Impossible
Today surgeons can successfully perform minimally invasive surgery for a greater variety of procedures. Using smaller devices and components means patients experience less pain, shorter recovery times and safer procedures.
At Saint-Gobain, we’re helping you to meet the growing demand for micro-sized solutions. Using our proprietary silicone micromolding process, Saint-Gobain’s dedicated project engineers partner with you to design solutions for the toughest surgical challenges. Our process allows you to achieve the highest tolerance targets, higher precision and shot-to-shot repeatability than possible with conventional molding methods.
Silicone Micromolding applications include:
- Laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery
- Ophthalmic procedures
- Advanced drug delivery
- Vascular devices
- IV therapy
Extreme challenges, peak performance:
- Parts as small as 0.001g
- Complex part geometries
- Extremely tight tolerances
- Thin wall sections
- Blind shutoffs
