With over 40 years in rotational mould making we've learned the right

and WRONG materials to use.  We typically construct the body of our

moulds using 12 gauge cold rolled steel.  However, we're not bound to

just this material.  We can use a variety of thicknesses ranging from 18

gauge to 1/4" plate.  We then proceed to strengthen all parting line

seams wih reinforcing key-stock.  Next we hinge and clamp the moulds

whenever possible.  This comes highly recommended for larger

production tools for its ability to vastly decrease a tools downtime,

and increase cycle times, and make it easier for laborers.  We can also

manufacture butt seams and nut and bolt closures if desired.  All split

                                             lines are welded, then finished

                                             on the inside of the mould,

                                             thereby making them virtually

                                             invisible on the plastic part. 

                                             Structural tubing is then added

                                             for framework to add strength

                                             and structural rigidity to our

                                             tooling.  This also doubles as

                                             mould protection.  Also, with

our extensive experience we are able to detect possible problems in your design such as plastic part removal, and shrinkage dilemmas.  In addition, modifications and repairs to existing moulds are much easier, quicker, and cheaper.  This is due to our ability to just add and remove sections without the need for recasting.  This is extremely beneficial when your plastic part has to line up with something already produced, then modified at a later date. 

  We are situated in a brand new 10,000 sq.ft building in Lindsay, Ontario, 1 hour north-east of Toronto.  We employ a highly skilled workforce that has ben equipped with state of the art equipment.
