Many innovative ideas are routinely incorporated into mold designs. They come from our diverse engineering team and are considered a normal part of our mold design process.
During 1995 we started patenting our innovations and currently have received 15 patents, with two patents pending. Our patents are in both injection mold and hot runner technology innovations. Notable among these are patents for a multi-shot technology called LIT (Low Inertia Turning) in 2002, followed by an LIT technology patent that includes rotating mandrels in 2004. Our newest innovations have patents pending for MAPP (Multiple Alternating Product Positions) and “Individual Valve Pin Shut Off in a Common Actuation Plate”.
