Tooling for injection molding is quoted on an individual basis. While it is difficult to know how much a tool will be in advance of recieving a CAD model, we have broken it down to five general levels of tooling and a list of extra features in order to give you a ballpark figure. Many variables must be considered so, as always, the quickest and most accurate way to calculate your cost is to contact us for a quote.

    Below is a summary of the tooling levels, click the item for more information:

  • Level 1 - This part can be made from a mold with the cavity cut in just one half. The other half is completely flat.
    Lead Time: 2-8+ weeks depending on backlog
  • Level 2 - This part can be made from a mold with the cavity cut into both halves. The mold split is planar (flat) and there are no areas of the mold that extend from one half into the other.
    Lead Time: 2-8+ weeks depending on backlog
  • Level 3 - This part is similar to level II, but there are areas of the mold where areas of one half extend into the other half. It also has a planar parting line.
    Lead Time: 2-8+ weeks depending on backlog
  • Level 4 - This part is similar to Level 3, but there are areas of both halves that extend into the other half. The parting line is planar.
    Lead Time: 2-8+ weeks depending on backlog
  • Level 5 - This is a more complex mold that has cavities cut into both halves of the mold and allows a non planar parting line, such as a freeform surface or stepped parting line . It may have extensions in both mold halves.
    Lead Time: 3-8+ weeks depending on backlog
