2018 Technology Review and Sourcing Guide: Mold Components
MoldMaking Technology’s annual Technology Review and Sourcing Guide is an accurate, comprehensive, easy-to-read and easy-to-use use guide for researching today’s technology, equipment, products and services. The year’s latest moldmaking product developments within mold engineering/design, build and maintenance/repair are broken down into 10 sections, including mold components.
MoldMaking Technology’s online database offers more than 1,000 manufacturers, distributors and suppliers for more than 200 product and service categories that you employ daily. To keep this information current, MoldMaking Technology surveys and updates its supplier database every spring with the latest company contact information and product/service offerings.

Browse our entire database of moldmaking suppliers in the supplier section. You can search by company name or by product category name, including automation, CAD/CAM, cutting tools and toolholders, EDM, hot runner systems, inspection/measurement, machining centers, mold components, mold maintenance, repair and surface treatment, mold materials, molds/tools/dies and additive manufacturing.
Knowing how a machine is tuned will improve your decision making for mold construction and adjustments.
Using aluminum tooling instead of traditional tools steels reduces cycle time and costs, but requires up-front, open communications between moldmaker, molder, material supplier and hot runner manifold supplier.
Reducing changeover times will eliminate waste, moving a shop closer to becoming lean.
