From Concept through Production
Ace Molding’s experienced staff will be by your side to help you make your idea a reality. We will assist you every step of the way from 3D printing a prototype to mold design to full production.
Ace Molding’s experienced staff will evaluate your CAD design and identify potential quality or production issues. When you are ready to create a prototype, we will help you contract with a 3D printing company to create a prototype and will then help you evaluate the product and identify quality or production issues. When we are both satisfied that a high-quality product can be produced we will help you design and manufacture a mold which will produce the necessary detail, contain the maximum number of cavities, and be made from the most appropriate material for the resin used, ensuring that we can produce a high-quality product for you from a long-lasting tool. Ace Molding only uses locally sourced 3D printers and mold manufacturers, to produce high quality prototypes and tooling with quick turnaround times.
Custom engraving is not a problem. High quality inserts can be made to mold your logo, or your customer’s logo directly into the product.
Once your mold is ready for production, we encourage you to visit our facility and experience firsthand the production of your first part. During your visit we will help you assess the quality of your product and if you desire, run a variety of colors to help you produce the perfect product. If that first product is less than perfect we will continue to work with you and the mold maker to achieve the quality we both desire.
Once your product is ready for full production Ace Molding can provide automated production, or operator-controlled production. Operator-controlled production ensures 100% inspection of every product produced. Value-added secondary operations can include sonic welding and display ready packaging. Ace Molding's experienced staff will work with you to minimize handling of your product to get your product to market in a timely manner.
As you need inventory and drop shipment options are also available to meet your needs.
