Companies continue to invest in micro molding assets as demand for tiny products grows. In a recent move, Spectrum Plastics Group of Minneapolis announced that it has acquired advanced micro molding assets, expanding the company’s full range of injection molding and rapid prototyping services to production of true micro-molded components and devices from highly engineered materials.
The acquisition includes six machines that will be part of Spectrum Plastic Group’s Minneapolis operation. The new machines will enable Spectrum Plastics to deliver parts from 100 thousandths of an inch to 1.25 inches and 1/4 grams to 5 grams. They expect these capabilities to benefit customers in the medical device, aerospace and defense markets.
