For small production runs or for prototyping, soft tooling is a fast and low cost way to build multiple copies of your product. To provide quick mold soft tooling services our engineers were sent to Japan to learn from soft tooling experts K2.
Cavity & Core Insert Made from Aluminum or Steel, Mold base free
Low Cost & Short Lead Time (5-10 days)
Useful for R/D testing and trail runs, reduces final tooling risks
Can product approximately 500 Shots
Soft tooling will cycle slower due to poor thermal conductivity of mold material.
Material life of soft tooling is limited and will depend upon part complexity.
Our mold fabrication shop is equipment with high-end Charmilles EDM and OKK CNC machines. Please visit our website for more details.
With the advent of 3D printing, rapid prototyping can now be done quickly and affordably. YOMURA TECHNOLOGIES is equipped with a high end, Digital Light Processor 3D printer built by Carima, a South Korean company with over 30 years of optical manufacturing experience.
Unlike Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing which heats a plastic filament then squeezes it through a nozzle to print one layer at a time, DLP uses a special light wave to activate a chemical reaction in a photopolymer resin which then cures into solid 3D object. DLP objects are smoother, more detailed and almost seamless, ideal for professional quality prototypes.
