Custom Mold Design & Fabrication
Available from Micro Mold Co
Each mold is custom designed and built in-house at Micro Mold. Our mold designers and engineers can create an initial blueprint and quickly react to any changes that may occur with respect to the part design, material selection or cavitation by utilizing multiple seats of computer aided design (CAD) software.
Micro Mold can design and build a mold that best fits your product’s unique requirements and application whether your part is large or small, high or low volume. Over the years, we’ve built molds of a range of sizes and cavitation. Micro Mold built a single cavity mold that produced a part with a projected area of 0.024” squared within a 7.875" x 7.875" mold frame. We’ve also built hot-runner system molds that weigh up to 4,000 lbs, and measure 23.75” x 35.50”. Furthermore, we’ve produced production tools with up to 96 cavities, all of which are fully interchangeable within the mold.
Additionally, we frequently design and build in the capabilities for tools to run with Cavity Pressure Sensors. This added engineering service and value is provided free of charge when these tools run production at Plastikos, and is another example of our desire to invest in and partner with our customers.
