Custom Metal Molds

Investing in Custom Metal Molds

Today, custom metal molds enable manufacturers to create almost any type of product. These molds facilitate the casting of a variety of metals, metal alloys, plastics, glass, and concrete.

Most companies utilize permanent custom metal molds, which last longer than temporary molds and permit a manufacturer to cast the same item repetitively. This process helps optimize investment in a high-quality mold by allowing the generation of multiple units.


Custom Metal Molds And Their Uses

Custom metal molds enable clients to create genuinely unique metal products. Often fashioned from iron, steel, or aluminum alloys, high-quality custom metal molds obtain high demand in numerous industries today, including the automotive and consumer goods industries.

Today, Bunty LLC designs and crafts cost-efficient custom metal molds for customers using many different types of metals and metal alloys. The needs of a specific manufacturing process determine the types of materials used to form the parts of a mold. The melting point of the component materials should exceed the melting point of the substrate, of course, (or else the manufacturing process would risk damaging the mold itself).


Some Types of Widely Used Custom Metal Mold Materials

Iron: With a melting point of 2800 degrees Fahrenheit, iron forms strong permanent molds for the production of numerous metal items. Although less frequently used today than during former eras, cast iron molds still hold utility in some industrial manufacturing processes. For example, this type of mold often casts gold ingot bars at national mints.

Steel: Steel molds also offer long term durability. The composition of the metal alloys used in different steels impacts specific individual melting points. Custom steel molds allow the casting of metal products, glass, plastics, and concrete.

Aluminum: This metal melts around 1220 degrees Fahrenheit. It frequently serves in injection molds used by the plastics industry. Additionally, aluminum molds assist numerous food producers.


Making Custom Metal Molds

We at Bunty LLC manufacture high-quality custom metal molds for our customers. We utilize a variety of methods such as casting, forging, and machining in the process of creating mold components based on your specifications.


Products Manufactured From Custom Metal Molds

The widespread utility of custom metal molds has enabled these tools to serve enterprises engaging in diverse economic sectors. Just a few industries which benefit from this manufacturing process include companies competing in agricultural, transportation, energy, consumer goods, electronics, aerospace, defense, and heavy industrial markets. The applications are so numerous, it’s not possible to list all of them in one place.

Custom metal molds are used in the manufacturing of specialized automotive parts and components. In some cases, manufacturers choose to invest in high-grade permanent metal molds in order to produce complex automotive metal components. For example, in most cases, iconic hood ornaments originated as cast metal parts. Manufacturers generate numerous other vehicle parts in this way, too (including some ornate metal door handles for use in classic auto replica kits).

Another example of the use of custom metal molds involves the production of concrete landscaping items. Designers sometimes cast concrete objects using plastic or wooden molds, or sand. However, they also enjoy the ability to create ornate statuary, signs, and flower pots with the assistance of sturdy, long lasting permanent custom metal molds.

Yet a third illustration occurs in the realm of building products. From decorative handles and ornate bathtub faucets to doorknobs and lighting fixtures, today’s automated manufacturing processes frequently utilize distinctive custom metal molds.


The Advantages of Using Custom Metal Molds

A variety of factors impact a company’s decision to design a permanent metal mold for use in the mass production of a specific component. What advantages do manufacturers obtain by relying upon custom metal molds during casting?

  1. As customized products, these molds provide highly tailored features. The mold owner obtains the capability to generate truly unique lines of products through casting by employing a high-quality custom metal mold.
  2. The use of top quality materials in a custom metal mold permits the re-use of the mold. Some enterprises may undertake this process for an extended period of time. While the firm will eventually need to perform re-tooling, a custom metal mold will permit the production of multiple copies of an item very cost-effectively in many cases.
  3. A custom metal mold permits the casting of complex (or even ornate) surfaces. In some circumstances, manufacturers might have difficulty reproducing fine details reliably using other means of production. For this reason, custom metal molds frequently serve firms engaging in the consumer goods and jewelry industries.
  4. Custom metal molds accommodate a wide variety of designs, sizes, and variations. For example, if a manufacturer desires to construct a set of very large brass bells, then this type of mold may offer the best way to ensure the company can cast these over-sized items uniformly. Custom metal molds also permit the reproduction of highly ornate or complex components.
  5. For companies with the capacity to melt substrates cost-effectively, custom metal molds may offer a highly economical form of manufacturing. This method of “low tech” casting has gained worldwide popularity. It supplies a readily available way to produce some machine components for mass markets.
  6. Today manufacturers of custom metal molds (like Bunty, LLC) frequently employ computer numerical control processes during mold construction. They can retain the plans for a specifically customized metal mold on file, allowing manufacturers to order identical replacement molds conveniently during re-tooling. This capability helps maintain consistent workpiece quality during multiple production runs.
