Our customer in North Georgia required less than 1 week turnaround time and delivery for specialized molds which are pressed into rubber or carpet used in matting. The parts were to be made from ¼" thick 6061 T6 Aluminum and the dimensions varied in size from 2′ x 3′ to 5′ x 12′; including a required tolerance of ± .015". Using our CNC controlled Flow IFB Waterjet equipment; we’re able to precision cut a wide range of materials into complex shapes with accuracies as close as +/- .005".
In order to meet our customer’s requirements, our team worked around the clock. Each mold required 15-20 hours of work and involved extensive operator intervention, hours of CAD programming, and analysis to ensure the work met our customer’s specifications. The project was successfully delivered on time and to the requested standards, fulfilling our customer’s expectations. As a result, we’ve produced over 1000 plates for our customer over a 5 year period.
