Moldmaking Technology is all about the processess, equipment and business of producing molds primarily for the plastics processing industry. While many people first think of injection molding, MMT also covers molds used in other primary processing categories such as blow molding, compression molding, thermoforming, vacuum molding and others. The manufacturing of molds can be a complex process requiring high end technologies such as CAD/CAM, process simulation software, precision 3D machining and finishing technologies. Plastic molds are widely used in a variety of industries including automotive, consumer products, electronics, medical, packaging and more.
