Vowin has joined forces with a LSR & Plastic Mold Making partner to expand and relocate Legu Tool and Mold LLC into Casco Bay Molding’s facility. Having two highly experienced tool and cncmachine.ltd/’ target=’_blank’>mold makers just steps away from our plastic and silicone injection cncmachine.ltd/en/News/news1251.html’ target=’_blank’>molding production floor simplifies and excellerates the necessary tooling adjustments that challenging projects often require. Our two tool makers possess New England know-how, each having over 27 years for experience – including graduation from Swiss style apprenticeship program.
Quick Response Development Cycling: Medical and OEM LSR (liquid silicone rubber) customers are almost always on tight timelines. This market requirement provided the impetus for Casco’s tool making investment. Full service under one roof:
- Product Design
- Mold Design
- Mold Making
- Mold Testing & De-bug
- Part Re-design
- Part and Mold Adjustments
- Mold Testing & De-bug
- Part Acceptance
- Production Tooling based on product know how
- High volume production
Frequently, multiple “mold/part design” change iterations are required to get to a final functional part. Our goal is to be able to “re-sample” your silicone or plastic Medical device component in the molding machine within 4 working days of receiving a revised parts design, provided revisions are received before 9am EST.
Our “Core & Cavity Set” insert philosophy is tailored to lower your upfront “tooling charge” investment as well as provide quick turn-a-round based on customer needs. To facilitate this Casco has invested in a series of mold bases of varying configurations:
- Cold runner valve gate, for direct gating of parts or minimizing LSR generation.
- 3 Plate style, ideal for when multiple LSR gates/drops are required.
- Convention plate core & cavity set insert style
