Intertech Pioneering Mold Making Techniques: Plastic Injection Mold, LSR Mold, Interchangeable Core Mold, Collapsible Core Mold & 2K Mold
Cutting edge mold making technique is the defining factor in choosing Intertech as the ideal mold supplier for many clients. Intertech's comprehensive mold making line ranges from plastic injection molds, die casting molds, silicone rubber molds, LSR molds, rubber molds, to press molds. Among the variety, plastic injection mold and LSR mold are the prominent technical features of Intertech. Plastic injection mold can be divided into thermoforming and thermosetting, according to its processing methods. In current market, the majority suppliers are incapable to support thermosetting molds due to incomplete manufacturing equipments or immature technique. Being sensitive to market demands, Intertech seeks for qualified team vendors from Taiwan to make up for the vacancy. Both urea molds and bakelite molds can be custom ordered from Intertech.
On the other hand, liquid silicone rubber mold (LSR) is also an unique molding skill of Intertech Machinery Incorporation. Main applications of LSR molds are diving equipments, baby nipples, medical items, sporting goods, and products that will directly contact human body. Due to its applications, the standard for LSR mold is higher than ordinary silicone rubber molds, requiring finer FDA qualified material and better manufacturing conditions. Intertech has been supplying diving equipment and medical products to various clients in the past decades; with abundant experiences in the field, LSR molds serves as the niche market that helps Intertech to embrace a wider market.
Other compelling features of Intertech is pilot molding & interchangeable core mold making designed for series production. Adopting pilot mold is not only swift and efficient, but also cost-effective. For example, by using only two sets of pilot molds with interchangeable cores mold design, clients can manufacture 32 different types of water treatment products of the same series. This assistance greatly reduced the burden of opening up individual mold for each type. Such skill is suitable for projects with limited mold making budget, small or medium quantity need, but has high variation demand. Intertech is proficient in 2K mold, collapsible cores, and big mold lathing as well, which are cost-saving molding method and efficient in terms of cycle time. Intertech can manufacture one mold with two color injected mold structure design, without need to produce two molds or rotate two times. Collapsible cores are applicable in pipe fitting mold. And the big mold lathing is especially ideal for large lightening equipment. Intertech is capable of machining huge round-shape mold with lathe machine; the diameter can reach up to one meter. Employing a wide variety of leading skills from thermosetting, LSR mold making, interchangeable core mold, collapsible core mold, to 2K mold, Intertech has gained a seat in international mold making market.
