Material choices include:
These multiple-tool mills can be used to machine both plastic and metal prototypes as well as aluminum or steel molds for plastic injection-molded parts.
Total turnaround time is 3 to 6 days for parts, and 3 to 6 weeks for molds depending on the project size and requirements. For creating small, difficult shapes in metal tools, we have Electric Discharge Machines (EDMs) that utilize an extremely accurate electrode to burn away metal from the base to create cavities.
CNC machining is also used to produce steel or aluminum insert tooling for MUD frame systems.
