StackTeck Systems has added multiple machines recently to increase productivity in its prototyping lab. In 2018 alone, $1.5 million dollars have been spent in equipment for the development of prototypes, including seven pieces of equipment such as advanced technology close tolerance milling and turning machines, universal grinders, three- and five-axis mills. The cell also has CAM programing where no 2D drawings are required and is able to develop prototype molds in an average of three to six weeks.  

This pilot cell offers flexibility regarding effect on speed and cost to custom tailor the mold design and prototype mold materials to suit project needs, including number of samples needed, accuracy, shrinkage and cycle time.  In addition, StackTeck offers its existing prototyping mold bases for typical packaging items such as lids, containers or tamper evident closures.

The advantage that a dedicated pilot cell offers to the company’s customers is rapid prototyping, as a faster alternative to advanced production stacks with simplification of cooling and/or ejection while expanding sampling capacity. This new dedicated cell is isolated in a closed manufacturing area for customers’ confidentiality requirements.
