Solutions: Mould Fabrication​

Mould fabrication is an integral part of many manufacturing processes, including injection moulding and thermoforming. At Alcami, we not only offer excellent manufacturing services, but also feature an in-house team of product and mould engineers to assist you with every step of your project production.  

Moulds are typically machined from high-durability metals such as hardened or pre-hardened steel, aluminum, or other metal alloys. Alcami machines exceptional moulds using reliable, high-accuracy methods, including CNC machines.

  • CAD/CAM machines

Our various machining options allow Alcami to creatively tackle any mould fabrication project with ease.

Contact us to discuss how the Alcami team can address your mould and product design needs.

What materials can moulds be made from?

Most production moulds are made from high-durability metals such as the following.

Hardened or pre-hardened steel

Steel is the most expensive material option for moulds, but is a preferred choice for many projects as it is more durable and lasts longer through high-stress injection processes than other metals. 

Aluminium

Aluminium is a great steel alternative for many projects since it is much more affordable. In some situations, however, aluminium may not withstand the strain of high production jobs or those with narrow tolerances.

Metal alloys

Many metal alloys can also be  attractive options for mould materials, depending on your project specifications. Feel free to ask our engineering team about what metal alloys could work well for your designs. No matter what materials you would like to work with, our engineering team can help you look at design strategies and recommendations to give you the highest quality product possible.
