Depending on the resources, time and money available to you there may be the option and advantage of making a mold in house. We have plenty of customers that choose to make molds and send them to us for us to pour our highly durable K-Prene® urethane. The foreseen advantage is complete control of the mold and overall outcome of the part being produced resulting in the potential lowered costs of engineering and manufacturing of the mold in house. Of course this can create unforeseen problems and extend the amount of time it takes to complete the mold making process if we cannot correctly pour the part or there happens to be a mistake in the mold.
Because we are a urethane and mold making manufacturer we work with businesses like you, do this every day and can design molds that we know will end up working with our manufacturing processes. The idea behind having this service under one roof is to cut down on overall costs and time that it takes to complete a finished product. We are very competitive with our rates for engineering, mold making and machining as well as the urethane itself. We have a dedicated mold room to house your molds on site and only to be used for your production needs. After all of the time spent on communication, shipping and freight charges we strongly suggest you Contact Us to discuss your application with us before deciding to build molds in house.
In the event you can manage all of the above in house under cost and are prototyping – have small production runs it could work in your advantage to make molds at your facility and we are happy to consult with you on this. Contact Us for more information or call 1-800-345-0583
