About the Process

Injection molding is ideal for end-use parts manufactured at mid to high volumes (100 - 500,000+ units).

For rapid design molds, customers can receive T1 samples off a steel tool in as fast as 10 business days. Customers own the core and cavity inserts and we use factory-owned, interchangeable mold base inserts. Aluminum, S50C, P20, and NAK80 tool inserts are available as well as the Master Unit Die (MUD) quick-change system. Side actions are created with hand pick out inserts.

For production tooling, we produce stand-alone tools, ultimately owned by the customer. P20, H13, S7, NAK80, and SS420 insert steel is available as well as family & multi-cavity tools.

Fictiv also offers specialized processes including insert molding (substrate tool + overmold tool), overmolding (rigid + elastomer, dual barrel machines), and compression molding.
