Mold Design & Manufacture

Injection Molds Types

Class 101 Multi Cavity Molds

Over-molds / Shuttle Molds

Unscrewing Molds/Long Core pull

Collapsible Core/ Expandable Cavity Molds

Micro Molds

Multi Shot Molds

Fast Delivery Prototype Molds

Our specialty has been close tolerance multi-cavity tooling for connectors. This specialty requires us to have capabilities that fit well with many industries that have high volume requirements. We have many tools that have been in service for numerous years with millions and millions of cycles. We are experienced with high cavitation molds and stack Molds as well. We can design and build a mold for you that will be trouble free, easy to maintain, and warranted for the life of the tool against manufacture defects. We can come up with creative mold designs to minimize runner lengths and mold footprint. We are experts at mold actions for multiple pull directions for even the smallest of part details.

From urethane pour molds to complex automated loading and unloading of micro inserts, we have over-molded inserts of plastic, metal, ceramic, glass, and more. We understand the special circumstances that over-molding creates with respect to shrink rate and cooling. We also understand correct tolerances to eliminate flash and make loading and unloading easy. If you need two complete ejector halves for a traditional vertical shuttle mold press or a mold with multiple removable cavities (for an automation cell), we can help you. We have designed and built tooling for robotic loading or hand loading/unloading of parts to be over-molded and also the finished product.

Drawing from our experience, we can design and build molds for the most challenging internal thread configurations. • Pneumatic • Electric, • Hydraulic • Mechanical action • Multiple thread pitches in one part We can pull long cores or, with the assistance of a cylinder, we can change the parting line sequence

We have built custom components in house to accomplish difficult internal or external undercuts with low cycle times and long tool life. We can also utilize off-the-shelf components.

We have equipment and the knowledge tool makers to build mold components that will challenge the eye. We can machine with cutters down to .003” diameter with our 42,000 RPM spindle or Wire EDM down to .004” diameter wire. Our Die Sink EDM machines are designed to promote fine detail in our tools.

If you need multi-color and/or multiple material types, we got you covered. We can build you a mold for all of the different 2-shot types of presses whether it be rotating platen and multiple A-halves or rotating mold inserts.

We can build even the simplest and lowest cost tooling types for casting metals or urethanes, injection molds from aluminum for quick turn and low cost. No job too big or too small.

New Mold Construction

Mold building is what we’re all about.

From print to part our Mold Design team can help you with part design if needed or just design you a unique mold to fit your cavity and cycle count expectations. We utilize SOLIDWORKS and MasterCam software for our 3D modeling and design. From start to finish we can handle nearly every aspect of your mold in-house. From building a custom mold bases to completing the finest cavity details we are equipped to meet nearly all of your mold needs in our state of the art shop. Whether it be micro milling for graphite or milling hardened steel or 4 Axis machining or milling a block 30” x 40” x 30”, we have the machines and the experience to accommodate your needs. We do our own in house heat treat with our new American made high temp, programmable, atmospheric furnace. We have extremely high precision manual grinders to brand new CNC controlled grinders so our accuracy will save you time and money for years to come. Our EDM department is yet to find a job they cannot handle, whether it be it near zero tolerance, complex medical or fiber optic parts or lower cost unattended production runs. Our extremely high precision Wire EDM machines can cut complex profiles and tight tolerance holes to meet any mold requirements you may have. From micro precision to industrial tumblers we can meet your every polish and finish need. We are currently in the process of trying to automate our tasks and run 24 hours a day. We are looking forward to serving you even when the lights go out. test

Product Design Assistance

Product Design Assistance

With all of our experience designing and building molds, we know what the design of a plastic part needs to be for the best molding conditions. Whether you need help adding draft angles and parting lines or you need a “from scratch” solution to a problem, we can help you with your product design. We can help with Mold Flow analysis to determine the best options for the mold details such as gate and vent locations and then address those as to how they may affect part fit and function as well as the cosmetics of the part.

Engineering Changes

Engineering Changes

If tooling changes need to be made or if you want to try and repurpose an old mold for a new part let us see what we can do to save you time and money and recycle that old mold for a new job. We are very adept to keeping records of previous work to assist in making cost effective changes that minimize the re-work. We are also always conscious of steel conditions such as knife edges and thin walls that would reduce the life of your tool.

Mold Sampling/Test Run

First Article Inspection

We can provide sample parts from a test run for the molds we build to ensure that when you receive a mold it is production ready. We will also provide the cycle times and molding parameters to speed up your time to production once the mold hits your floor. We can work with you to provide solutions that are machine independent, so you can achieve the same results in your facility that we do our in ours. Or, if you have another facility in another location, these same solutions can be used to insure quality.

First Article Inspection services are available for all parts whether molded or machinede. We have a wide range of inspection equipment to censure the accuracy of your parts. We can utilize chromatic white light sensors, HD vision system, touch and touchless CMM, Instant Measure machines, tool makers scopes, certified gauge pins, optical comparators and more. If you have specific requirements or desire statistical analysis we can work with you to meet your needs.
