Engineering

Engineered Molds to meet the increasing demands of today’s Plastics Industries.

Our highly skilled Designers engineer molds to exact specifications.

Designers will provide you with weekly progress reports of you project along with complete 3D & 2D mold design.

From the time your mold is ordered to the time the mold is complete, dedicated professionals guide your project through every phase of the operation.

Engineering Design

Faro Arm

Compares real life scan of mold to the original 3D design.

3D & 2D Design

Designers use part data supplied by the customer to engineer the mold.

Programing

Powermill CAM software provides comprehensive milling strategies

Quality Control

All molds at American Tool & Engineering are inspected before shipment.

CMM quality report
Enabling faster, more accurate, compelling and useable 3D documentation
Accelerating execution timelines
Minimizing in field 3D documentation and measurement times

3D & 2D Design

Designers use part data supplied by the customer to engineer the mold. Once the 3D process is complete then mold data is sent for customer approval. Customer will send 3D approval back to the designer then the 2D design starts. When 2D design is complete it is sent to the customer for approval. Designers can engineer complicated molds with lifters, slides, cylinders, and tight tolerances.

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software delivers powerful design functionality
Molds are designed by customer specifications
Upon completion of design all data is sent for customer approval
Weekly progress reports
Customers own mold data
