DME's New Large Mold Base Offer Increases Efficiency for Customers

DME’s recent multi-million dollar investment in mold base manufacturing at the company’s North American manufacturing centers allows it to produce large mold bases more rapidly and with greater quality than ever before.

These plants, located in Windsor, Ontario, Youngwood, Penn., and Greenville, Mich., give customers a competitive advantage by providing greater value through overall improved quality, tighter tolerances and faster delivery.

The larger work zones on the equipment accommodate tapping, chamfering, spot-facing, counterboring, slot-cutting, face milling, compound thread milling and other processes on large mold bases to provide customers with the high quality they can expect from DME.

“Our large mold bases will bring increased productivity and profitability to customers looking to get more out of their mold bases,” said Doug Miller, DME Operations Manager. “Moldmakers who have spent countless hours creating their own mold bases can now focus on more important operations.”
