Custom rubber molding at LeRoy Tool & Die begins up front with our customers in the form of project management and in-house collaborative engineering support to identify the correct material and ensure the optimal design of each part.
From there a member of engineering team uses NX to design tooling that delivers the best overall value taking into consideration:
- Customer Specific Requirements (CSR’s)
- Annual usage
- Tooling budget
- Cycle times
- Desired part appearance
- Secondary operations
