Precision Mold Manufacturing for a PPS Housing for the Automotive Industry

Mold Manufacturing for a PPS Housing PPS Housing 

The product shown here was manufactured with molds designed and fabricated by Faith Tool & Manufacturing, Inc. This product highlights our ability to manufacture complex, precision designs for a wide array of applications. Designed to be used in an automotive application as a transmission component, the mold fabrication included various machining techniques to achieve the precision required.

This mold was machined utilizing our Mitsubishi FA Wire EDM and Charmille Roboform EDM. Our precision machining was completed on an OKK CNC machining center (for graphite). The finished molded component featured dimensions of 4.065" in length, 3.745" in width, and was 1.605" in height. Tolerances included ±0.05mm, a true position of .1mm, parallelism of .1mm, and flatness of .1mm. The finished component would also require material finishes of #32 covered grain. This finish is applied to all surfaces except the hatched area, which has #45 cover applied. The finished mold was then shipped to the customer in Lyon, France for inspection and testing.
