Injection mold inserts

Mould, Mold Insert

For the purpose of injection molding either Nickel shims of 1mm–3mm thickness or Nickel shims which are mounted on a steel block will be used.

This technique allows the manufacturing of mold inserts with several centimeter thickness, which are cut by wire cutting according to the required dimensions. The Nickel shims can be patterned with a huge diversity of micro- and nanostructures. Even mold inserts with curved micro-patterned surfaces can be produced to a certain extend.
