Quality Assurance

At Custom Mold & Design, quality disciplines are incorporated throughout all phases of construction. Quality mold and component fabrication must be preceded with advanced engineering and design support.

Our cross functional team performs a detailed analysis for each component or assembly to look for potential failure modes before we begin a project. This approach allows us to solve problems up-front rather than during the manufacturing process where it can cost you time and money.

Custom Mold & Design will design and manufacture molds that meet or exceed all customer requirements such as:

  • Product life cycles
  • Reduce cycle time
  • Part dimensional reproducibility
  • Interchangeable mold components
  • Predictable maintenance
