Resumo(s)Microinjection moulding is one of the most efficient replication methods for polymeric components in microsystems. The manufacturing of moulding blocks for complex geometries is resorting increasingly to the techniques of rapid prototyping. This development on the use of additive microtechnologies can promote the massification of microsystems within a shorter tooling development cycle time. However, the microinjection moulding process itself has mechanical and thermal demands that must be addressed and require specific consideration of the selection of the tool material. This constrains the selection of the best-suited additive manufacturing process. The current state of the art of additive manufacturing technologies at the micrometric scale favours laser sources to process layer by layer the media contained in a vat. The media type, the laser power and the laser spot size are parameters that can influence the replication tool tolerances and physical properties. This work explores the possibilities of two additive technology tooling approaches for microinjection moulding, using different materials. The research parameters included replication detailing onto the plastic part, surface roughness, microtool integrity and wear. The evaluation of these parameters was carried out using both optical and hybrid microscopy, a laser perthometer as a non-contact solution for surface roughness evaluation, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray spectroscopy. The results of this research work showed that the processed material and technology play an important role both on surface quality and tool life, enabling criteria definition for technology selection.
