Freeform Polymers specializes in industry-leading mold manufacturing in Utah. But what does this process entail, and how can it impact your product and your business?

Making the highest quality mold is essential to the success of your project. From custom individual designs to large scale production, we’ve got you covered with the latest technology in mold manufacturing and injection molding.

The Mold Manufacturing Process

It all starts with a design and creation of a prototype. Next, dense steel is used to create your custom mold. This material is designed to withstand even the harshest elements—like repetitive exposure to heat and pressure.

We can also make molds using 3D printing for smaller scale projects.

Next, we’ll inject the mold. Plastics are used to make numerous different products across various industries. From toys to medical devices, plastics can be molded and shaped using injection molding to create a high quality product through the most efficient process.

Injection molding is one of the most common manufacturing processes. The same mold can be used thousands, if not millions of times to create large batches of product.

Molten plastic material is placed in the injection mold where high pressure is applied to press the material into each cavity and crevice of the mold. As it cools, the material solidifies and takes shape, where it can then be polished and any additional assembly can be applied.

Because your mold will be used countless times as the primary element in the production process, the highest quality mold manufacturing in Utah matters. Freeform Polymers specializes in every phase of the manufacturing process—including prototyping, mold manufacturing, injection molding, and more.
