Company Profile

DME was founded to help streamline the manufacture of plastic injection molds. In 1942, Ted Quarnstrom began Detroit Mold Engineering (later to become D-M-E Company) to provide mold bases in standard sizes, ready for machining of the cavity. This innovation empowered the skilled moldmaker to practice his craft more efficiently and the concept of the standard mold base was born. DME is focused on one thing - to help make moldmakers, molders and mold designers produce better parts. Every DME product cuts costs, reduces time-to-market or improves the finished molded product (sometimes all three). Today, the DME product line encompasses a wide range of products, including: Mold bases, DME standard, custom-machined Edge and MoldBasics series, plus Master Unit Die (MUD) quick change(tm) mold systems and components
