Tool manufacturing - description of the process

Our toolmaking department manufactures prototype tools and small series tools for injection molding and elastomer manufacturing. We design the tools and manufacture them using a hybrid milling and laser melting construction technology. In the next step of the manufacturing process, these steel or aluminum tools are used to manufacture the plastic parts in conventional injection molding or elastomer processes. The discharge quantity per tool amounts to about 3,000 - 5,000 pieces.
