Injection Mold Tooling Services for Manufacturing with Plastics

In order to manufacture specialized, micro-precision plastic parts for medical, food, packaging, automobile or electronic industries, casting cavities that produce the complex molds must be tooled. Tooling includes shaping and producing the metal components of a mold that will give a product its final shape. Tooling requires careful planning so that each casting cavity and core box of a mold is perfectly designed to manufacture products that will meet required specifications.

When designing tools to manufacture a product it is important to have engineers and tooling experts who understand the product or system in which the plastic component will function, and to keep the product and component design with moldability and manufacturability in mind. 

Tooling is a skill that requires a team of engineers who have extensive knowledge and training to carefully mill, bore and cut each tool with the highest accuracy, down to the smallest detail.

Whether you are in the early product development stage for a new product or you are in need of a new vendor of an existing project, you need a team ready to walk you through the entire manufacturing process.
