Fully Integrated Tooling Division
Once the engineering of the part and the mold design is complete, it is handed off to the Tooling Division. Protoplast’s in-house tooling team each have CAD/CAM software experience, and use these tools to pick dimensions off computer screens. Every complex step of machining a mold is done in-house at Protoplast. This includes CNC machining the core & cavity, and electrodes, gun drilling water lines, polishing, spotting and mold texturing. Only top quality components are used in each mold to guarantee a long life of the tool and the program.
