In-House Tool Design:
Our complete in-house tooling department serves as a critical division here at Rakar.
We understand that the quality of your Mold is directly essential to success of your molded part. We have learned from decades of experience how parts should be designed & produced for optimal performance, appearance & functionality.
We have all the equipment necessary to produce tools to the highest standard. Our tooling department equipment includes:
In order to find the best approach to meet your timing & budget requirements, Rakar offers flexible tooling options. We can build your tool in house or outsource through our partnership with quality tool shops in both the United States & offshore. Our designers stay with each project from concept until the tool goes into production ensuring consistency throughout the production development.
When designing your tool Rakar understand the importance of a number of design features including:
- Radii & Corner Integrity
Mold Transfer / Take Over:
We offer free, no obligation quotes for all mold takeovers. In addition, we offer free first article samples & reports as well!
When other manufacturers can not successfully mold your job, you can trust Rakar to offer solutions & effectively transfer your mold with little downtime. Often times these transfers result in production cost saving as well.
When the tooling is received at Rakar, we identify & correct any quality deficiencies as early as possible. Any necessary modifications are documented & made by our team of experienced engineers as quickly as possible & first article samples & reports are always sent for approval before the mold is put into production.
Tooling Repair & Maintenance:
Part of our success here at Rakar is due to our Complete In-House Tooling Department. During production, ALL of our molded parts are continually checked throughout the molding process. This in-process testing ensures that quality, durability, and tolerance are never compromised. If the parts are rejected from Quality Control and it is found that repairs need to be made to the mold, we can utilize our tooling department to quickly made the necessary modification. Often, we are able to keep the machine “hot” while the repairs are being made, and keep your parts into production.
At Rakar, we take care of YOUR tools like our own. We implement regular maintenance programs and tool storage to ensure your tools are preserved at the highest possible quality standards. We strive to keep your tools in as good condition. In fact many times the condition of the tooling transferred from another location to Rakar is not optimal. We take the time to repair, maintain, and store your tooling. Often times, when the job is completed, we return the tooling in better condition than when originally received.
