An Interview with George Blais, Machining Supervisor
George Blais (pictured here) cuts metal into shapes that create molds to produce microplates. The metals usually arrive as large bars and plates that are progressively machined into pieces that can be assembled into a form. This form can then be mounted and connected to the flow of an injection molding machine. The machining phase has several stages required to optimize the specifications of the final microplate product.
