MOLD MAKING

Custom Mold Making

We use proprietary custom molding and building techniques to build inexpensive composite molds, capable of long production runs in both RTM and RIM molding. Our composite molds provide you with a fast and economical route to quality parts, as compared to the costly compression-type tooling used by other companies.

While open molding methods used by “hand-layup” and “chopper-gun” shops offer cheap tooling, they can also contribute to lower part quality. Our two-piece closed composite molds quickly repay their higher initial cost through overwhelming part quality advantages. Using a solid-modeling CAD system, Osborne also provides prototype test molds, as well as machined aluminum molds for longer RTM and RIM molding service, if your application requires. Additionally, the entire Osborne manufacturing facility features 24-hour fire protection to ensure the safety of our employees, molds, and materials. Patterns or “plugs” are housed in one of our off-site warehouses for even further fail-safe protection.
