Mold Design and Tooling
Looking to extend their innovation in the surgical realm, this medical device company devised a new surgical arm to assist in different operations. Having so many moving parts that needed to meet different requirements, many manufacturers would have had to outsource for some parts. This then increased not only the complexity of the supply chain but also time spent per part. That’s where Seaway’s mold design and tooling comes in.
Existing Mold Transfers
When injection molding businesses move, close down, downscale, or merge with other entities, they often have nowhere to house their molds, and they have to transfer their molds/tools to another molder. This requires them to search for plastic injection molders, and go through the process of relocating the tools and the entire manufacturing process to another factory.
Seaway Plastics has rehoused hundreds of tools. We store tools in our climate-controlled warehouses, and when they arrive, we carefully examine them to find and address any faults, blemishes, or irregularities. We also assist with mold-moving logistics and tool transfers.
