Mold Resources


After part design, the biggest determinate of part quality is the quality of the mold. Therefore, it’s important to consider the desired life of the mold, how the prototype will be created and tested, as well as issues such as mold transfer, mold materials and mold standards. Each moldmaker has different capabilities. R&D Plastics selects moldmakers based on the fulfillment of their abilities.
