How to Choose the Best Mold Maker to Partner With

When choosing a plastic injection mold maker that best suits your production requirements, unique products, and industry, there are a plethora of factors to consider.

First, you should gain basic knowledge about the plastic molding process. In essence, this process uses plastic resins or polymers that when heated, melted, and injected under high pressure into a custom mold, will create plastic parts to be used in product manufacturing.

While this process seems easy, countless manufacturers partner with a professional injection mold maker to produce highly complex parts that cater to their unique time/budget constraints, end-uses, specifications, and industry needs.

Here are some factors you should consider when choosing the best mold maker to partner with:

Total Quality Management

If you work with an organization that specializes in plastics, you’ll benefit in terms of profit and optimum efficiency without reducing the quality of your products. The experienced engineers of PTMS follow all standard testing methodologies and use the correct test equipment for part qualifications.

Finishing Operations

Normally, your product will need some type of finishing, whether this would be painting, hot stamping, ultrasonic insertion, or pad printing. The most optimal production process will belong to a partner that can conduct finishing operations and production operations in the same location. This can take weeks off of the total amount of time needed for manufacturing.

Custom Mold Manufacturing

To create the best development process or an optimal mold design, partner with experienced tool engineers. By looking at the project from various dimensions, they can work to conclude the best methods for creating inserts, windows, recessed features, holes, and part features. This may significantly reduce the number of extra steps which could be required during the later phases of the manufacturing process.

Design Assistance

Professional partners can save you time and effort by letting you know what’s ideal and what’s achievable from a manufacturing standpoint – right from the initial stage of the design process. By considering production, you’ll be able to streamline and simplify your design for the benefit of both your budget and your team.
