EPW custom build’s a variety of post operative tooling fixtures to complement the molds we manufacture. Post operative tooling fixture creation gives our customers “one stop shopping”.
Complete mold and fixture purchases allow for single source accountability and continuity between the mold and fixture surfaces relative to parting line and run off consistency.
This capability ensures our customers consistent part quality while allowing EPW to implement project management to oversee the entire project having both the mold and post operative fixture designed and manufactured at one location thus saving customer time and resources.
There are several types of post operative fixtures that are key to a successful part manufacturing system ranging from water jet trim fixtures, checking fixtures, assembly and cooling fixtures. Each of these mold fixtures are unique and custom built concurrently with the molds manufactured at EPW. Each fixture adds both quality and added value to the end customer product being manufactured. Below a brief summary of fixture types and how they are typically used.
