Small Mold Parts

January 21, 2013 5:06 pm | Accumold | Products

Small or Miniature Parts maintain the same precision and quality as our Micro-Molded parts do, they are simply a bit larger, ranging in size from about 1/2 inch to about 3.5 inches in diameter or up to a one ounce part weight. These parts can have micro-sized features also measured in microns. Using Accumold's modifications to our presses ranging from 12 ton to 35 ton, these parts are made with minimal waste and fast cycle times. Many small parts are developed as result of the combined efforts of the customer's design engineers and Accumold's tool designers, saving material costs and assembly labor.
