)-- International Mold and Production (IMAP) adds rapid molding to meet customer demand, speeding product development cycles.
“Since 1998 we have leveraged our strong partnership with Stratasys to bring products to market, adding an injection molding machine and molds bases for 3D printed inserts is the next natural step in our technological evolution.” -According to Leonard Koren, President of IMAP.
IMAP invested in a 128 ton injection molding machine with hardened screw and 222g barrel combination for injection molding nylon and other abrasive materials, and the equipment is also used to run 3D printed molds using Stratasys Digital ABS material or hybrid with metal inserts. This gives parts in days versus several weeks for traditional mold making. IMAP has been building molds with its Chinese partner for 13 years, starting out in Canton, Michigan in 2003 and moving to the Chicago area after the downturn in automotive in 2007.
IMAP offers a seamless transaction for American molders, especially the Detroit automotive market where Leonard leverages his 20 years in automotive plastic injection molding expertise which started early on with training by the now closed Bluewater Plastics.
“The benefit of our business model is the customer receives high quality molds and fixtures, with excellent pricing and digital mold drawings reviews without having to interface with china. We provide all the logistics, land the mold, clean it up, and deliver to the customer’s dock,” says Leonard.
Adding 3D digital ABS molding in the USA helps IMAP to service the prototype and low volume markets, and when the project is ready IMAP can move it to their location in China for low cost volume production.
Cost, Quality, Delivery with IMAP you get all three!
