How our Insert System Works
Extrusions End Caps &
Plastic Molding Tools
We use a special high strength fast machining Aluminium Alloy for tool
construction. Fast machining means less time and less cost. In our system we
create what we call "tool inserts", a cavity and core to make the injection
molded parts. We take those Aluminium inserts and bolt them into our reusable
mold bases, that we turn load into an injection molding machine to produce the
Most other companies sell a complete mold rather than just the "inserts".
|The picture at the right shows a conventional complete mold, one that can be put into almost any molding machine of the right capacity.
To help us stay cost effective, with our system we charge only for the
"cavity and core" to make the part. This system is best suited for low to medium
volume production. The inserts themselves are normally in good working condition
after even 100,000 or more shots, so tool life is excellent, however it depends
on the materials being processed.
Glass filled materials wear the tools more than unfilled materials. The
advantage of our system is that tooling is significantly less expensive.
|While we manufacture some tooling in house we also
work with a number of excellent tool shops, that use EDM and conventional tools
as well as CNC shops that can convert CAD drawings quickly into Aluminium tool
Our Alibre 3D CAD system allows us to read and use imported CAD files in iges,
step, sat, formats.
We run a full range of materials with the exception of PVC which requires special venting to handle dangerous off gassing.
Aluminum Insert Tool
The picture at the left shows the Aluminium core and cavity which is the two
aluminum pieces that have red cooling hoses attached to them. All the other
parts are our reusable mold base that we attach the aluminum inserts to.
We demonstrate our confidence in this technology by our mould life guarantee. If
the mould gets worn out, the mould will be replaced at no cost. Some
restrictions apply: Not suitable for glass filled materials and the mould must
be the exact duplicate of the original part.
