We supply mold bases as a separate product to many of our customers, with and without hot runner systems. CTI designs and manufactures mold bases of the highest quality, ruggedness and precision. We can design your mold base or manufacture to your existing design.

Our in-house Mold Base Department is fully equipped with the highest quality CNC horizontal and vertical machining centers, gun drill, large plate grinder, precision mills and CNC Jig Grinder. Mold plates are ground flat and parallel to .0002.

Wherever possible, each individual plate is machined from a solid block of pre-hardened stainless steel to ensure:

  • Dimensional accuracy
  • Mold ruggedness and stiffness
  • Minimum deflection under high clamp tonnages and injection pressures
  • Minimum maintenance
  • Mold longevity
