Tour the Plant

IR Gantry

A wide variety of tools are produced in our South Carolina location.  While our normal focus is to not build as large a tool as the Iowa plant, we maintain equipment that is capable to build and repair tools as large as 20,000 lbs.  Our focus is on producing the best tool for our customer with the most aggressive delivery schedule possible.   Lean activities, continuous process improvement, and a commitment to ISO principals are embedded in our company DNA.  Employees are trained in critical thinking and decision making with a focus on consistent performance to our manufacturing standards.  

MSI Sampling PressMSI Mold Builders has long been known for its advances in Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, and 5S processes at its facilities.  We pride ourselves in being a very process-driven organization, working to maximize efficiencies in all aspects of the business.  From the request for quote to the finished mold shipping, we work to do things in the best way possible to assure customer satisfaction.  Being a process-driven company helped us achieve our ISO 9001:2008 Certification in 2010.
Our Engineering department utilizes ProE and Solidworks as a design platform .  We have standardized mold design components to facilitate feature recognition for CNC programming and we have tied our design library into our business system to reduce ordering errors.   All designs are completed as a solid models and the data is organized for easy access electronically on the shop floor for manufacturing.  Limited paper prints are produced to support inspection and mold documentation.

greenvilleDrill.jpgCNC programming is 100% completed on the shop floor by the machine operator.  Electrode extraction and modeling is completed on the shop floor as tools are completed on the three and 5 axis CNC machines to meet the needs of EDM.  All operators are trained for the specific type of operations that are being performed.  Prospector, Lemoine  and WorkNc are used to create tool path for our CNC and EDM operations.

Assembly time has been reduced from days to hours because of improved manufacturing process that makes assembly less of a trial fit to simple assembly, verification and inspection.  Mold sampling can be accomplished with our 500 ton Engle molding press.
