Tech Mold opens white room in Gilbert testing facility

Tech Mold Inc., a leading mold manufacturer of high-volume production molds for the medical, pharmaceutical, packaging, and consumer industries, just opened a white room molding environment at its Gilbert, AZ, testing facility—Tech Mold East—to better facilitate the testing and qualification requirements for the many molds the company builds.

Tech Mold East was designed to provide customers with facilities in which to perform R&D on new products with developmental tooling, as well as validation of production molds. Tech Mold East’s facility has private meeting rooms and an inspection room in which customers can work. The white-room environment will initially house two all-electric presses: a 65-ton Krauss-Maffei hydraulic, and a 55-ton Arburg all-electric .

Tech Mold has always been attuned to its customers’ requirements throughout the entire process of product development. We offer support starting with initial product design, pilot tooling and multicavity, ultra-precision high-volume production molds,” stated Vince Lomax, Tech Mold’s VP. “We recognize that many of our customers operate in a high-volume manufacturing environment and at times do not have the resources to run product off of two- or four-cavity pilot molds for market testing, automation integration, or product development, so to that end, we strive to provide a molding environment that is more compatible to meeting customers’ needs”.

Additionally, Tech Mold Inc. received certification from one of its major medical OEM customers as a “Class C-3 Supplier,” which certifies Tech Mold to run production parts in addition to pre-production and validation.

Tech Mold East currently has a total of six presses at the facility ranging from 40-440 tons. Tech Mold’s expertise includes building automated molding cells complete with robotics for molding projects that require a total solution.

Tech Mold also has an R&D division that specializes in collaborative engineering for developmental prototype tooling, offering dimensionally correct parts in hand, while at the same time laying the groundwork of critical mold parameters and manufacturing information that translates easily into multicavity production molds.

Tech Mold’s mold manufacturing expertise includes two-shot, multi-component, and multi-material molds; stack molds; and high-production hot runner molds. The company also works with premier molding machinery manufacturers and robotic providers to design and construct molding cells. —Clare Goldsberry
