Micro-molded integral non-line-of sight articles and method
 
Sawyer et al of the University of Florida, Florida, developed a method of molding integral articles having non-line-of-site contours with stack molds with a mold channel running through the stack.  The molds are stacked on one another to form a mold stack, wherein at least one portion of the mold stack provides a non-line of sight multi-level channel through at least partial overlap of the mold channels between adjacent molds.  A flowable material is applied to the mold stack. The flowable material is pressed to fill the mold channels in each of the plurality of molds to form an integral article comprising a plurality of stacked integrally connected levels of the material, wherein through interconnection of the integrally connected levels the integral article provides at least one non-line of sight contour traversing in its thickness direction. The mold stack is then separated or removed to free the integral article. RDC 8/10/2012)
