Having a good mold design is critical for delivering a capable, high quality product. Each part design is unique and has its own list of requirements, so one-size-fits-all mold build concepts will not make the cut. With over thirty years of experience in tooling and mold design, PTI’s team of skilled designers have helped pave the way in delivering mold designs and parts that continuously meet and exceed their requirements.
PTI’s Art Tool Room provides a fully integrated tooling network comprised of mold designers and CNC programmers utilizing state-of-the-art software for high speed CNC vertical machining centers complimented by plunge and wire EDM Machines. This tool room enables the success of getting products to market quickly without compromising mold design, part design, or quality.
PTI tooling and mold design contributions include:
- Extensive materials selection: PTI uses an array of materials from aluminum, mild steel, hardened steels, stainless and copper beryllium to create prototypes, low volume, hybrid and production tooling
- Mold bases: Injection mold types include unit mold insert, MUD, free standing, shuttle loading with automated & manual tooling actions in single and multi-cavity format
- SPI Classifications of 101, 102, 103, and 104
- Runner Systems: Cold runner, hot drop, and hot manifold systems with valve gate options
