Used for bacterial DNA extraction with magnetic beads and a magnetic stick.
Challenged by the need to design a single part component with conflicting needs for material properties. A living hinge was needed in four areas as well as two area in need of breakaway functionality. So our team went to work, succefully developing a functional balance between these utilizing geometry, materials, and our experience of what works.
The result was a slam dunk, including a single (up and down - no side action tool) capable of repeatably producing parts that function and serve the user to the success of which they just say, 'oh, yea it works great, thanks!'
Soloosion performed a series of mold flow analysis to ensure proper tool cavity filling during injection molding. More mold flow analyses are displayed below.
