MoldMaking Technology's Christina Fuges chats with some of the Liberty Molds team about a Ford Motor Company respirator project in the fight against COVID-19, the Hurco machine delivery that was key, and their take on the virus' impact and reshoring.

I sat down for a quick chat with Liberty Mold’s President Brian Scott and International Tooling Coordinator Mark Israels to get the scoop on the personal respirator system molds they took on and the earlier-than-expected purchase of two more Hurco machines to get the job done quickly. [Hurco delivered the machine tools within 72 hours!]

This “family” of 34—who primarily build automotive tooling—came together within 24 hours of a phone call to Scott about the need for respiration tooling. The team built 12 molds with a total of 10 different components.
