Tooling design can be critical to achieving commercialization goals. Tool design has a direct impact on product cosmetics, cost and scalability. Sequential injection molding offers both cosmetic and throughput benefits, but in its traditional form has required a bulky mold and use of larger tonnage machines to accommodate the external hydraulic support system. Forefront Medical Technology, a specialty contract manufacturer with a focus in disposable diagnostic, drug delivery systems and medical device systems, has patented a streamlined sequential tooling design which utilizes a mechanical function inside the tool to eliminate the need for an external hydraulic system. The end result is a tool that easily fits in standard machines of the same tonnage as conventional injection molding tool, but is 50 percent faster than a conventional tool.

Forefront Medical Technology will be exhibiting at MDM East in New York City June 13-15 with a slight twist. The show organizers changed our booth location without notifying us so all pre-show marketing and the directory listing have the old booth number. The new location is Booth 2366, one aisle over from the old location. We look forward to seeing you there.
