Prototype mold

With a prototype mold, develop, refine and bring your project to industrial scale by building pre-production parts.
We are your local testing centre and you are welcome to come and take part in the injection tests.
This will be the ideal opportunity for you to exchange views with the whole of our technical team.

Prototype mold

We design your prototype mold in our dedicated design office:

  • CAD layouts to simplify mold production and reduce costs and lead times.
  • Integration of the necessary drafts.
  • Checking material thicknesses.
  • Simulation, in certain cases, of the part’s behaviour during injection.
  • Anticipation during tool design: filling, part deformation, hot spots in the mold, etc.
  • Our software :

This tooling technology ensures optimisation of the injection process:

  • Validation of the manufacturing process configuration.
  • Validation of the product in the production process configuration.
  • Production start-up in the event of delays in production resources.

Based on the 3D file of your part, we carry out a tooling study:

  • Undercuts demoulded by removable blocks or pins, manually by the operator at the foot of the press.
  • CAD/CAM generation of toolpaths and electrodes.
  • Cavity machining.
  • Polishing of cavities or specific graining.
  • Mold adjustment and assembly.
  • Injection test and tooling set-up, cavity modification possible subject to feasibility.

Start production with your parts in the right material:

  • Tests and customer validation.
  • Produce a pre-production run to test a market.
  • Faster product development.
  • Allows you to test parts before launching a multi-cavity mould.
  • Material testing.
  • Validation/optimisation of the injection process before production molding.

    Prototype Molding

    A prototype mold to validate your product and its industrial process.

    • Impression blocks mounted in standard INITIAL housing or complete mold, steel or aluminum.
    Final material
    • All thermoplastics except PVC.
      Injection-molded parts in good material and in series condition on our presses.
    • Part size according to analysis and technical validation
    • Max volume = <200cm3
    • Max. surface area = <300cm2
    Production lead times
    • Approximately 4 to 6 weeks for the first parts.
