Chapter 4. Molded Parts

Replication processes cannot be analyzed without their results—in this case the molded parts. These replicated parts with their microstructures give feedback to the process parameters and boundary conditions of the replication process. Therefore neither component—the process nor the replicated parts—can be analyzed independently.

What does it mean to characterize a molded part, especially under the aspect of microstructuring? This chapter will define characteristic properties of replicated parts, especially those replicated by hot embossing, and will discuss the technology that is available to measure the characteristics of each molded part in the micro or nano range. Here the reproducible accuracy of each measurement ...
