HOW IT WORKS
Plastic Injection Mold Repairs
Vector Tool provides repair services to broken/damaged molds and components. An experienced toolmaker is assigned to a repair and evaluates the damage to the mold. These experts work closely with the engineering department to develop a plan to return your plastic injection mold or component to its original state.
Sometimes this process may require receiving customer supplied mold designs if not built by Vector. Typical repairs could include — but are not limited to — welding, inserting, machining, sinker EDM, wire EDM, grinding, and polishing. After the repair is complete, the toolmaker will inspect the repair and evaluate the fit “bluing” shutoff surfaces or areas.
Plastic Injection Mold Revisions
Vector also revises plastic injection molds to reflect necessary modifications. Vector will first evaluate the revision and provide a quote. Vector’s engineering department will design the revision upon the customer’s approval of the quote.
To complete your revision, you may need to provide the original design if the mold wasn’t made by Vector. Once the design is complete, the project is assigned to a toolmaker and is processed in Vector’s shop.
Vector Tool & Engineering has a team of dedicated and experienced engineers and toolmakers to help with any and all plastic injection mold repairs or revisions.
We can provide you with cost-effective solutions and a short lead time.
