The ADM Approach
ADM's Core Tool & Mold Manufacturing Services
Streamlining manufacturing processes from concept to completion through expert insight and in-house capabilities
ADM's Expertise, Your Assurance
Product Design Assistance and Design for Manufacturability (DfM) Feedback
We offer complete design assistance and Design for Manufacturability (DfM) feedback of your conceptual idea of a product to a finished 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) model using our state-of-the-art 3D CAD software. With our multiaxis CNC machines and EDM technology, we use that 3D model to develop precise cutter paths and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) files that we upload to our workstations to machine the actual mold components quickly and accurately.
Our highly experienced engineers will closely review the part design with you for potential design enhancements to improve on manufacturability of your mold and your part. We help you to reduce overall costs while maintaining necessary quality requirements and meeting necessary manufacturing requirements. Before we move to production, our expert mold designer and builder with 30+ years of experience closely reviews and approves your design.
Because the manufacture of the highest quality molded part requires the highest quality, accurately designed and built mold, our expert mold designer and builder custom builds each mold to the exact design of the finished component with precision. Your mold is one of the largest investments that you can make in the manufacturing process, and you can rest assured that our services will result in a favorable return.
Before we ship your custom-built molds, we sample them by testing, analyzing, and addressing issues that can affect part moldability such as mold filling, packing, and cooling. And we closely examine and correct any gating, venting, and ejection issues. When your mold goes into production, you can trust that it is production-ready and will mold your parts as designed.
Mold Repair and Maintenance
The life of a mold is just as important to part cost and quality as the design and build of a mold. To support our in-house injection molding operations, we specialize in mold repair and maintenance to prevent mold failures and to lower the overall cost of a molding program. With a variety of processes, such as CNC milling, CNC turning, wire EDM, and welding, we provide accurate, fast, and efficient mold repair and maintenance solutions. Then we quickly return your mold fully repaired so that you can get it back into production.
OEMs who experience challenges and poor-performing molding programs with other suppliers elect to move their molding programs to us and trust our experience to mitigate and resolve their problems that often include poor quality, high prices, or long lead times. If you are experiencing similar problems, we have the experience and expertise necessary to perform a full diagnosis to determine the root cause. This service is also critical to customers of our in-house injection molding operations.
