In-House Design/Tooling

Defining In-House Design and Tooling


Tooling design is the foundation of manufacturing. The engineers in our in-house design/tooling team are proficient in a variety of design software, including Solidworks, MasterCAM, and Robot Studio. They use these tools to take your ideas, goals, and design criteria from concept to production.


Our designers and tool makers produce thermoform, composite, and urethane molds in-house.

Why You Need Us

Many times, a customer has the exact specs and won’t settle for any variances. Other customers might have a general purpose in mind and require design services and samples from us. Our in-house design team will work with your team to help you generate the CAD design needed and then design the tooling to bring your ideas to life.

Additional Benefits of In-House Design and Tooling

Extensive Design Software Expertise

As mentioned above, our engineers have extensive design software expertise in Solidworks, MasterCAM, and Robot Studio. We use Solidworks for designing and reviewing CAD models and drawings in any IGES, Pro/E, Inventor, or STEP file. We use MasterCAM to generate programs for trimming and machining on our CNCs. We use Robot Studio to offline program our ABB and Fanuc robots.

Temperature-Controlled Molds

Our molds have temperature control to make sure consistent parts are formed. This increases efficiency and ensures all parts shrink constantly.  

Precision Trimming

Parts are trimmed robotically on our CNC routers.
