Our Precision Tooling Advantage

Precision tooling helps businesses make parts that meet tight tolerances and product design requirements. We operate with a comprehensive range of equipment, while utilizing the most advanced manufacturing techniques for tool building.

We produce a wide range of precision tooling, which can be used in our molds to produce accurate plastic components for:

  • Spare Parts & Prototyping
  • Consumer & Home Goods
  • Construction & Agriculture Parts
  • Automotive and Aerospace Parts
  • Medical Accessories

Our high precision machinery allows clients to enjoy customization options when it comes to building intricate parts. Our tool room will work with a wide variety of metals, including stainless steel, aluminum & other alloys, to achieve the best results for production runs.

Plastic Injection Tooling—Our Process

When tooling work is complete, we use plastic injection molding to run high-volume parts in production. This process brings a number of benefits to large-scale production, including:

  • Low price per unit
  • Low scrap rates
  • Excellent repeatability

Plastic injection molding operates by creating tooling for a mold in the shape of the desired part or product. Once all of the tooling components are complete and the mold is assembled, we inject molten plastic and allow it to cool. A single mold will create the exact same plastic product millions of times, so it is a perfect way to create large volumes of plastic components, such as:

  • Under-hood components
  • Cabin accessory components
  • Chemical containers
  • Containers for consumable goods
  • Toiletries
