Prototype moldsare typically different from production molds because they are normally not meant to be used in the long term. As one of the leaders in the industry, Michiana Global Mold has experts who can handle any type of mold, including prototypes. Between our experts and our partner facility, Modular Mold Solutions in China, we have a combined 600 years of mold building knowledge and skills. This partnership brings not only exceptional skill into our process, but allows us to offer very competitive prices for top-quality molds.
All of our project management is conducted in our US facility located in Mishawaka, Indiana. We use a security data transfer system to share information between our experts and our partners, as well as with customers. Staying in close contact with the client is the reason why our company has excelled within the industry, so we ensure that communication is always open and transparent. In addition to projects being managed in the US, all final inspections are completed in the US prior to shipping the molds.

This is when a pre-production injection mold can help you determine what works and when you need to go back to the drawing board. Since you are using lower-cost materials and a quicker process, you won’t feel pressured to settle for something that doesn’t meet your needs.
Our 25,000 square-foot facility gives us the room to take on numerous types of projects, from prototypes to complex final molds. Using a wide range of high-tech machines and traditional tools, we can make many types of molds, including the following example:
