Technology Showcase: Case Studies, Part 2
For the many differences between moldmaking companies that I’ve observed, there are just as many similarities, and by that I mean challenges shared. You may find some solutions here.

Building a Better Tool
Collaboration was key to building a mold that would drastically cut cycle time.

Throwback Thursday: Best Practices for Surface Finishing
Surface finishing is as critical an aspect of building a mold as the design, so a review of some best practices is always a good idea.

Quickly Getting to the Root of the Problem
Diagnostic device helps molders simply check hot runner cables to ensure connectivity.

DME MoldXChecker

Simplified Multimeter Speeds Hot Half Testing
DME’s MoldXChecker is designed test the hot half of a mold faster and more reliably than the traditional method of multimeter testing, which requires touching each terminal.

DME ProWeld micro-welding system

Micro-Welding System Repairs Small Areas of Molds
DME’s ProWeld micro-welding system is well-suited for repairing very small areas of molds without the need for other types of welding such as argon, laser and TIG.
