Large mold bases from DME offer increased efficiency for moldmakers

Moldmakers who have traditionally created their own large mold bases can now buy them as standard order from DME Co., saving time and increasing efficiency. The new mold bases come in plates up to 66 in. long, 54 in. wide, and 13 in. thick.

DME's recent multimillion dollar investment in mold base manufacturing at its North America manufacturing centers allows it to produce these large mold bases more rapidly and with greater quality than ever before. The plants, located in Windsor, ON, Canada; Youngwood, PA; and Greenville, MI, give customers a competitive advantage by providing greater value through overall improved quality, tighter tolerances, and faster delivery.

The larger work zones on the equipment accommodate tapping, chamfering, spot-facing, counter-boring, slot-cutting, face milling, compound thread milling, and other processes on large mold bases.

"Our large mold bases will bring increased productivity and profitability to customers looking to get more out of their mold bases," said Doug Miller, DME Operations Manager. "Moldmakers who have spent countless hours creating their own mold bases can now focus on more important operations."
