Design & Engineering
Our design team can turn your challenge into reality. Utilizing the latest technology in both mold design and mold flow software, Carson’s team is able to design your mold around your individual performance and durability needs. We employ the latest Pro Engineer software technology as well as Cimatron shop software. Just as all part designs are unique, so are mold designs. We specialize in all types of injection and compression mold design from prototyping to single and multi-cavity molds, with cold or hot runner specifications.
With a total collective tenure of industry experience of over 400 years, combined in our shop and engineering departments, and an average of 13 years per employee working at Carson, we have the experience and know-how to get your project done accurately and efficiently. In addition, we continually improve our technology, frequently investing in both software and hardware, to ensure the highest quality at day's end. Whether building new molds and components, repairing, refurbishment or preventive maintenance, you can be assured that your assets are in good hands. All work is manufactured in our 24,000 square foot climate-controlled production facility. Browse our “About Us” section of site for a complete list of equipment that we utilize.
Utilizing a combination of hand-tool measurement alongside state-of-the-art digital CMM metrology, the continual pre-checking and post-checking of work pieces is crucial to the overall accuracy of any project. Ensuring proper measurements from beginning to end leads to a much higher degree of acceptance at First Article Inspection points and ultimately, less modification and faster "to press" times.
Maintenance & Repair
Whether you simply need preventive maintenance service on your mold or a complex repair, our team is fully qualified to efficiently handle your needs. We repair most all injection molds up to 10,000 lbs. regardless of manufacturer, and also offer pickup and delivery service. We will get the job done correctly and efficiently, minimizing down time for you. Contact us regarding your specific needs.
We operate multiple in-house presses which are utilized for not only small sampling runs but also fully documented mold trials and limited production runs, if needed. We work closely with our customers to ensure the needed data is provided to you for the qualification of your project. Please contact us regarding your special needs. Our current press tonnage is listed below.
Milacron VS-120 Hydraulic 120 ton press
Toyo Si-400-6 All-Electric 400 ton press with core-pull capability
In this day and age of mold building, it is crucial that manual craftsmanship is balanced by current technology to ensure both accuracy and efficiency. We consistently upgrade our existing equipment as well as invest in new technology in order to continually improve our processes and initiatives.
