Plastic Injection Tooling Services

Tooling is a very important aspect of plastic injection molding and cannot be taken lightly! Camcar Plastics Inc chooses only highly qualified tool shops to make its customers plastic injection molding tools and the shop chosen has to do with the complexity and tolerances of the plastic part.  Quality plastic parts require quality plastic injection mold tooling.  The number of cavities in the plastic injection molding tool is determined by the annual usage of the plastic part.  Plastic injection molding tooling can run from 1 cavity to, 4, 16 or 32 cavity tools and more.

After the plastic injection tooling is made and parts are run it doesn’t end there.  Camcar Plastics Inc has a rigorous maintenance program that maintains the expensive asset so it will last for the duration of the program which could be 5 years or 20 years.  It is wise to pick a plastic injection molder that has your best interest!  Protecting that tool to go the extra mile is a priority.
