Injection Molding Technology

Technology Days is Back

Education for those serious about injection molding…

The education is free. The information is priceless.

Technology Days is back at Toshiba Machine America’s Elk Grove Village, Illinois Tech Center. You are invited to attend an extraordinary event to keep abreast of the latest molding technologies, increasing your facility technology and profitability.

Technology Days has been structured to have identical morning & afternoon sessions both days. Our sponsor Toshiba Machine will be providing lunch for all participants.

Injection Molded Medical Plastic Parts

Over 40 years experience in creating Rapid Prototype Tooling using traditional tooling methods.

Anything that can be done in a traditional Steel Tool built for Injection Molding can be done in an Aluminum Tool. The Aluminum Tool will run more efficiently every time and PRODUCE PRODUCTION QUALITY PLASTIC PARTS just like Steel Tooling.

Your Injection Molded Plastic Prototype Concept

We Build to Your Specification.

Rapid Plastic Prototypes usually means compromising on the design in order to receive parts quickly and cost efficiently. We blend traditional Injection Molding Tooling methods with Aluminum Tooling to rapidly produce production quality Plastic Prototypes in 15 days or less, check out our Injection Molding Tooling Leadtimes.

Plastic Prototype’s that compromise and limit your design? Cheap on the front side isn’t so cheap at the cost of expensive lessons learned in production start-up. Our customers need and want Injection Molded Plastic Prototypes that show their design live, fit and function so they can learn from it and move directly into production. View our Aluminum Tooling Cost Savings Study we did for a major appliance OEM client.

It is a fact that Aluminum Tooling can produce Class A surfaces for optical light pipes, clear lenses and prism’s, PHOENIX PROTO does it every day, read more here Rapid prototyping tooling for Class A Surfaces.

It is also a fact that Aluminum Tooling and the Rapid Prototypes it produces can hold tight tolerances. In fact Aluminum Tooling is the perfect match for fields with rapid product development turnover like medical research, development and production. Learn more about Aluminum Tooling for rapid plastic medical prototypes.

Aluminum Tooling is a great fit for consumer goods manufacturers when “first to market” is crucial especially in a crowded marketplace. While your competition is still waiting on their P20 tooling you’ll already have perfectly created injection molded plastic parts that are production quality.

Cam slides, hand loads, insert molding, 2 -3 shot molding… anything you can do in a traditional P20 mold you can do in an Aluminum mold.

50,000, 100,000, 250,000, 1,000,000+ Bridge tooling, soft tooling, pilot production, market testing, gap testing, etc. Called by any name it still is pre-production quantities. The plastic prototype chosen is important in how successful the project will be in closing the “gap” and crossing into full production or a new design. Our rapid prototype Aluminum Tooling gets you there faster.

8 Myths About Aluminum Tooling

These are the most common myths about Aluminum tooling. Our Team has been creating injection molded prototypes and production volumes from Aluminum Tooling since the late 1970’s. We continue to have great success with them to this day. Recently due to a variety of factors ranging from cost, lead times, volumes etc Aluminum tooling for injection molded plastic parts.
