Lead time varies by type of tool and complexity. We have produced a mold in as little as 48 hours, but some multi-cavity production tools can take 8 weeks or longer. LTD remains committed to working with our customers to improve timing on those projects that require expedited delivery.
Prototype molds can be built from aluminum or various grades of steel including P2.
Yes, we are ISO 9001:2015 certified with a scope of Design, Manufacture, Distribution and Repair of Molds and Precision Machining of Parts. We are currently pursuing the same for the Manufacture of Rubber and Plastic Parts.
Common materials molded are Chloroprene (CR), Nitrile (NBR), Ethylene Acrylic AEM), Natural rubber (NR), Styrene Butadiene (SBR), Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM), Nitrile + Polyvinyl Chloride (NBR+PVC) and Polyacrylate rubber ACM.
We can build hot runner and solid or split cold runner molds tailored specifically to your needs.
LeRoy Tool designs and fabricates various assemblies including (but not limited to) rotating core bars, sliding core bars, and shuttle plates for faster cycle times. We build many tools with a split core that makes part removal easier. We can also provide tools for loading metals into the mold, knocking out parts from multi-cavity molds, and removing complex parts from the core.
LeRoy Tool can design a mold that uses hardened bite inserts that minimize the amount of flash that typically gets around the metal.
High-grade aluminum and they are typically single or two cavity tools.
Yes, part of the thermoplastic elastomer family, LTD can mold Santoprene® in sample to small production runs.
