The method of using microwelding machine to fabricate micro features on a stainless steel micro mould has been studied. The micro features obtained from molding using an ultrasonic microwelding machine have shown distinctive characteristics. The microflow behavior of polymer melt during the microwelding process is also studied. The micro molds of 0.2mm thick and through holes of 0.05mm and 0.2mm in diameters were used. Results show micro features can be produced using the microwelding machine with molding speed comparable to that of micro injection molding.
