Prototype Tooling - Many of the tools that we produce are complicated, large and expensive production tools. To reduce risk, it may be a good idea to build a small prototype tool as proof of concept. This can help to fine tune the part or mold design and can make a larger more complex tool less risky. Our team has the expertise to produce low cost, limited production prototype tooling. These tools can consist of aluminum or softer tool steels which enable us to keep the tooling production costs down.
Single Cavity Tooling - For smaller volumes, we can build single cavity tools to meet your production volume requirements.
Multi-Cavity Tooling - Allowing for multiple cavities, can reduce your piece part pricing
Insert Molding- Insert molding is a process in which plastic resin can be molded over an insert. Inserts can be threaded inserts, bushings, specialized components, pins or any number of things.
Overmolding - Is a process in which one material is injected over another. For instance, a soft TPE material is injected onto a more rigid resin.
Hot Runner Tooling - To reduce the cost of material on high volume parts or on products that utilize expensive material, a hot runner system can be developed. Hot runner tooling eliminates the need for a cold runner and sprue which means that there is very little wasted material. A hot runner system adds cost to tooling but material savings can pay for the expense very quickly. Plastics Plus Technology has extensive experience with hot runner systems up to 32 cavities.
