Molds are the heart of any thermoforming project. Crystal Craft has been manufacturing custom molds for over 30 years. We have a highly trained staff of engineers able to manipulate existing designs to adhere to customer changes as well as develop molds from scratch. No mold is too complex for us to manufacture.
Molds are made from either wood or aluminum:
A wood mold is typically ideal for customers with low production runs and prototyping needs. They are cheaper and faster to produce and they can be reformed to modifications in the prototype stage of production
Aluminum molds are best for high production runs and pressure forming. Temperature control of the mold can be maintained, which ensures repeatability during production runs.
These molds carry longevity and repeatability characteristics, which surpass wooden molds.
