Krieger Craftsmen, winner of the 2016 Leadtime Leader award, says it takes mold manufacturing one step further to mold “productionizing,” assuming tight tolerances and part/insert interchangeability, and speeding the process of consistent, accurate manufacturing. Key to this process is its Grob 550 universal machining center with Schuler LoadMaster pallet changer, more commonly used in high-production applications.

“Better, more accurate molds that are easier to service and delivered in less time for a fair price—that’s what we call 'productionizing’ moldmaking,” says owner Tim Krieger.
