Thermoset molds using bulk molding composites (BMC) are required in situations where the plastic part must withstand high temperatures. Automotive lighting, medical devices and high-voltage electrical applications are a few examples where Thermoset/BMC tools are required.
Here's an excellent article about the value of vocational programs offered by community colleges. Growing manufacturers like Precise Tooling actively support a variety of programs that encourage high school graduates to consider the skilled trades as a career path.
This year's results included all-time high scores in:
Manufacturing is experiencing unprecedented levels of change. 5-axis CNC machining is a prime example. However, exploiting the full capabilities of 5-axis hardware cannot be achieved without equally capable software.
That’s why we partner with Autodesk®. As shown in this video, our engineering team uses PowerMill®, PowerShape® & Fusion 360® to achieve the tight-tolerances and highly accurate requirements on your projects. Whether calculating dynamic toolpaths for complex parts or designing electrodes for EDM, this incredibly powerful software enables our craftsmen to connect the dots between design and fabrication within one seamless software environment.
Building an injection tool is a complex undertaking. Every mold is custom machined in terms of core placement, cavities, cooling lines and ejectors. Knowing the variables that influence injection tool costs enable you to manage the cost of your tool, thereby making the most efficient use of your project budget.
How ISO 9001: 2015 Compares To Its Predecessor
ISO 9001 is an international standard that species requirements for manufacturer’s quality management systems. Precise Tooling Solutions earned the ISO 9001:2015 certification by demonstrating an ability to provide consistently high-quality products and services that meet regulatory and customer requirements.
The May issue of Modern Machine Shop includes a feature article on Precise Tooling. The article focuses on data-driven decision-making, and our 5-Axis Roeders Mill is pictured on the cover.
Nice article from Plastics News article about ErgoSmart, our line of industrial-strength ergonomic workstations.
We are delighted to announce Essential Automation Solutions in Charlotte and the Blackburn Company in Minneapolis have agreed to represent ErgoSmart, the industry’s most versatile line of adjustable-height workstations.
Essential Automation Solutions, Inc., located near Charlotte NC, is led by Rick Brightwell. This manufacturer’s sales agency will represent the ErgoSmart line of adjustable height workstations in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
Brian has time-tested experience both as a tool builder and program manager of challenging projects. He spent 25 years as a Precise craftsman before taking a role with one of our tooling customers (Tasus) in 2015. His desire to work closer to home brought him back to our team, and we couldn’t be happier.
We are extremely fortunate to add someone with Brian’s experience as we continue to expand our tooling capabilities. In his new role, Brian will be responsible for two critically important objectives:
- Ensuring that your new tooling is delivered on time and at budget
- Making sure your timeline expectations are met on engineering changes, productivity and repair projects
In addition, he will work closely with Troy Jackson & Erica Whitby in deepening our customer partnerships, and with Josh Jeffries & Scott Nickerson in delivering the highest quality on your projects.
Our customer, one of the world's largest engine manufacturers, needed a more efficient packaging line at one of their facilities. The initial phase of the project called for nine (9) ergonomic workstations configured with custom shelving and hardware that could accommodate multiple packaging processes.
Today's automotive and aerospace tooling requires incredibly tight tolerances. Can your current suppliers meet these demanding tolerances without compromising your design or exceeding your budget? Precise Tooling Solutions can.
Our Roeders 5-axis machine provides accuracy within 5 microns, along with an optic-quality finish directly from the machine. This virtually eliminates the need for EDM and manual polishing. Paired with PowerMill's new CAM software, this means we can machine the complex design features you need at your targeted price.
Don't compromise your design or overspend your tooling budget.
