Decoding success in mould manufacturing
Quality and turnaround are key to success for every mould manufacturer. Even the smallest rejection or rework leads to delays and adds-up to direct and indirect costs for the customer. Constant upgrade in technology, skilled manpower and processes are critical to matching the shortening delivery time line.
Advanced technology such as 3D printing etc. is potentially useful to develop samples/prototypes. However, it will take a few more years to become a part of mainstream manufacturing.
We have set very aggressive goals in terms of faster delivery of moulds. For instance, we take about 25 days to manufacture a highly complex mould as compared to the industry norm of 45-60 days. Our relentless focus on faster delivery of moulds creates numerous benefits for the customers. Currently, we use Sparkonix’s EDM Drill and ZNC EDM which deliver a performance to meet our aggressive delivery goals. The quality of equipment is good and the finishing achieved is consistent.
Above all, we have got timely support from Sparkonix’s service team.
