MSI. We build the world's best molds.
Since 1971, industries around the world have turned MSI to design and build molds of exceptional accuracy and durability. Our dedication to the highest quality mold design and building standards is part of our mission to lead the industry in the design and production of value added plastic molds.
Our customers turn to us to design and build various types of steel and aluminum molds for injection, structural foam, rim, blow, gas assist and structural web processes. We also design and build aluminum injection molds for limited production runs.
Today we serve customers in the computer, business machine, medical diagnostics, material handling, sporting goods, lawn and garden, appliance, consumer electronics, heavy equipment and transportation industries.
MSI builds it better, builds it faster, builds it leaner.
We have fully implemented lean manufacturing processes in our Cedar Rapids headquarters facility.
By employing lean manufacturing principles and focusing on work flow from order entry to finished product shipping, we have dramatically improved our efficiency and product quality. What this means for you is better quality molds, built and delivered with shorter lead times.
Want proof? Recently a customer came to us with an order for two molds that traditionally required 450 hours each to produce. But they needed them in 16 working days.
By applying our process driven lean approach, we not only met the customer’s deadline, we also incorporated some specific mold design recommendations that helped our customer streamline their manufacturing process as well.
MSI offers manufacturers full life cycle support.
MSI provides customers with the unique opportunity to partner with a technologically advanced company that leads in the field of prototype development of all types of injection molds. When the need moves to high volume manufacturing, MSI also offers total support in ongoing design development, routine mold building with closely managed just-in-time service and complete repair services.
