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.

Top 4 Reasons to Get You on the Right Track

Custom fabrication is required any time you cannot obtain exactly what you need. In the world of microplates, the optimum solution to your problem is most likely a variation of products that currently exist in the marketplace. Seahorse Labware has designed its production capability in a modular format, allowing interchange of various components to generate a large matrix of possible product configurations. And, because we are geared to address the custom market, our production runs are relatively short. This approach reduces the time and resources required to produce your new product and it lowers the minimum order commitment quantities.
