For over 30 years, Accumold has been pioneering the industrial application of micro molding across various industry sectors that require affordable, timely, and miniaturized parts and components, while at the same time catering for the inexorable demand for more complex geometries, the use of an array of complex to process thermoplastics, and tighter and tighter tolerances.
At the Optical Networking & Communication (OFC) Conference and Exhibition, San Diego, CA, USA, Accumold is proud to be displaying an array of parts and components that it has manufactured for various OEMs showcasing the versatility and accuracy of its micro molding service, and the variety of materials and applications that it has experience in manufacturing. The company can be found on booth 5408 at OFC from 10-12 March 2020
Accumold has been serving the optics market-place for decades, and has been involved with the manufacture of ground-breaking and highly innovative products on behalf of an array of companies from leading SME’s to large multi-national blue-chips. The micro optics sector is characterized by the requirement for extreme accuracy, and products and components produced in a timely and cost-effective manner. As such, it is vital that OEMs locate and engage with a qualified and experienced micro molding expert to ensure optimal outcomes.
Alongside the conference at OFC that is running from 8-12 March, the OFC exhibition draws together the cream of optical communications and networking professionals, and for over 40 years the event has drawn an international audience that use OFC as a key networking forum. This year over 700 exhibiting companies will be on site.
Roger Hargens, President at Accumold says, “We are delighted to be exhibiting at the OFC event this year, and look forward to discussing the needs of the optics sector when it comes to the need for micro optical components. There are various things that as a company we will be emphasising at the event, key among which is the fact that we see it as vital that our customers to engage with us as early as possible in the design process to ensure optimised manufacturing outcomes. At Accumold we work with leading OEMs from across numerous industry sectors as product development partners, and because of this we achieve success where alternative suppliers may struggle.”
Accumold has the longest history of micro molding in North America, stretching back to the 1980s. During the 30-plus years that the company has been pioneering the art of micro manufacturing and micro molding, it has grown to become by far the biggest micro molding company in the world.
The company is truly vertically integrated, with design and material assistance, micro tool fabrication, micro molding, validation, and automated assembly all carried out under one roof. Today, the company has grown to a 130,000 square foot fortified facility designed for assurance of supply, employs 350 staff, and ships parts and components all over the world. The physical extent of the company ensures that it is uniquely placed to accommodate the mass manufacturing cells that customers demand when molding in the multi-millions of parts per year.
Holding ISO 13485, ISO 9001, and ISO 14001 certification, Accumold is able to work in multiple industry sectors, and excels when challenged with exacting parts with tight tolerances, many of which are often used in safety critical applications.
The company invites all attendees at OFC 2020 to visit its booth and discuss any applications with its expert team, who will be able to talk attendees through the possibilities that exist for micro molding your parts and components.
