Rapid Tooling
We make great tools for low-volume manufacturing,especially when quantity for hundreds and thousands of parts,  we can use aluminum and Steel material to build the mold. To shorten lead-time and reduce cost, we share the mold base and different mold cavity. The material used will depend on the type of resin, characteristics of the parts and the number of parts you required.

We also make aluminum tools due the low volume. The advantage of aluminum tool is fast modeling and most cost-effective. Aluminum is softer than steel mold, so which will be better for smaller volumes. For larger volume production, and durable mold life, we suggest to use steel mold.

Steel tool is harden and more durable, which is suitable for larger volumes or injecting abrasive or corrosive plastics . But it will take longer to produce.

We own our rapid tooling workshop, which makes us have capability to handle all sort of projects from prototypes to production. Molds can be stored well at SuNPe for annual demands. We have a wide range of plastic materials to use and can deliver the parts in 7 to 15 days .

Q:What's the rapid steel mold?

A:Rapid steel mold is a solution for low volume production. Molds designed to simplify the mold frame for saving time and cost. Some tooling can also share the same mold frame with others, but change the mold core as needed.


Q: What is the available lead time for opening a mold?

A: Tooling lead time range from 1-2 weeks.


Q: Can parts have undercuts?

A: Parts can be molded with undercuts. Cams, slides, and lifters can be incorporated into the tooling. For low volume parts, hand loaded inserts can be applied to cut cost.


Q: Is draft angle needed to injection parts?

A: Draft angle is needed in most of injection cases. The degree of draft depends on several factors:geometries and wall thickness of parts, material, surface finish, and textures, etc.
