IDES Inc. offers a new version of CostMate—a free, injection molding part cost calculator. The tool assists injection molders and OEMs in assessing the true cost of a plastic part.

As most molders have their own quoting tool, CostMate can provide a quick double check to give a molder immediate feedback on the price they are quoting for a job. It takes profit margin versus markup into consideration. Additionally, it accurately determines the total amount of material required for the job given scrap, reject, and regrind requirements.
