Our customer needed an eight-cavity hot runner mold to produce a part essential to COVID-19 medical treatments. Due to our experience building high-quality molds with accelerated lead times, we committed to building this mold within six weeks.
We started immediately. The preliminary mold design was drafted and the part was modified for design for manufacturing (DFM) within two days. The design concept was approved and materials were ordered within the first week. As the materials arrived, our project management team maintained a steady workflow throughout our manufacturing cells. All electrodes were built within the third week of the project; the mold was completed and sampled — ahead of schedule — in the fifth week. This medical filter adapter mold was approved without the need for dimensional grooming.
