Custom Plastic Molding Overview
Molding (sometimes referred to as moulding in some areas of the world) has been around for ages, having seen a remarkable transformation thanks to evolving scientific and technological innovations. Custom molds can be created primary via electrical discharge machining (EDM) also known as spark erosion or by means of traditional machining methods. Scientific or decoupled molding has replaced single pressure molding techniques of the to create cycle to cycle or shot-to-shot consistency. In general, the fewer number of cavities, the lower the initial manufacturing costs however detailing intricacy and tolerance requirements among other factors all impact cost as well. As expert mold makers, we provide both the design, manufacturing, and quality to create the right output, all backed by our experience.

Custom Molding Finishing Services
Once your custom rubber or plastic part has been created in the molding stage, the next step, depending on how your part needs to be formed, could be trim-die-punching.  In this stage, a trimming die cuts away excess or irregular pieces of the part that was molded. A die is a metal block used for forming materials such as plastic or rubber. Punching can stretch, bend or blank (cut) the part.
