  • Laser engraving systems;
  • Three furnaces;
  • A Class ISO7 cleanroom, equivalent to class 10000 according to FS 209.

A competitive advantage

Thanks to their variety, power and versatility, we can meet any order, whether you need small or large volumes. We have adapted our molding capacities to our objective of opening up to the microfluidic market. Our goal? Precise supply of complex components on demand. We currently use two main types of injections to produce micro-injection moldings: silicone injections and thermoplastics.

Silicone injections

Silicone is increasingly seen as a material with great development potential in microfluidics.

For complex applications

Certain silicone grades – compatible with the medical applications we cater for – enable us to produce parts with very fine details and complex shapes. Its low viscosity could be blamed, but that’s without taking into account the precise tooling and specific designs that are part of DBM Medix’s daily routine. Remember: we’re far from beginners! For some parts, we are even able to reproduce the geometries found on silicon disks. When we say precision, we mean precision.

For applications requiring rigidity

Another advantage of silicone is its flexibility, enabling it to be overmolded with a thermoplastic structure. The key? More rigidity. Some grades also support the physical, chemical and biological properties of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). Well established in the research sector, this polymer is recognized for its ease of use in setting up controlled manufacturing protocols, application tests and experimental set-ups. In short, it’s ideal for prototyping.

From craft production to volume production: that’s the prospect offered by silicone and PDMS. By reducing the time needed for testing, verification and validation, they also shorten design times, and significantly open up the way for DBM Medix to reach new levels of quality and quantity.

At DBM Medix, we’ve earned our stripes for expertise in a wide range of thermoplastic molding techniques. These include multi-layer molding and compression molding. As for thermoplastic materials, we use polymers such as polystyrene (PS), polycarbonate (PC), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), cycloolefin copolymer (COC) and cycloolefin polymer (COP). All are commonly used for molding due to their ease of handling, transparency, good dimensional tolerance, and compatibility with microfabrication processes.
