Once your product has been designed, prototyped, analyzed, and tested, it is now ready for production. The vertically integrated service of Compression includes tooling for injection molding. The processes used have been developed and refined for very swift completion times. After tooling is complete, Compression has the ability to manufacture the finished product. In-house production capabilities facilitate the production of parts and assemblies within a short time frame. To further reduce the development cycle, manufacturing services can extend to include post molding operations such as ultrasonic welding, pad printing, and assembly.

Compression's experienced and knowledgeable tool designers and craftsmen combine the 3-D data from the development process with the latest tool design software, including Cimatron, to design the tooling for your product. Before the tooling process begins, the mold design is thoroughly checked and verified to ensure that the most efficient tool design configuration has been employed. This critical extra step is your assurance that your parts will be the highest quality possible. Depending on your molding requirements,Compression provides its customers with a selection of tool types. These include:

Bridge Tooling
Compression's bridge tools are sometimes used as production tools, or backup tools to a production tool. Bridge tools can be made from aluminum or P20 steel depending on part geometry, tolerance expectations, and tool life expectations.

Low Volume Production Tooling
This type of tool is designed to have a longer life of 50,000 - 200,000 pieces depending on various factors. The tool is usually made of P20 steel and may have heat treated components. Action in this type of tool is automatic in most cases to optimize the molding process. Many of the particular features of these tools will be dependent upon expected tool life.
