Mould construction

A mould is the most important and often the most valuable part of the injection moulding process. Mould making is a skilled craft and each mould is unique.

Investment in moulds is often a major barrier to the production of injection moulded products. This is because each mould is different and must be designed from scratch each time. This can easily take several hundred hours of skilled labour and high-tech machinery.

But once you have decided that injection moulding is the right process for your product, you will also be looking for a qualified partner to manufacture your valuable production tools. De Beer Allinplast is just such a partner: with its own mould-making facility in Oud-Beijerland and two other mould-making companies in the De Beer Group, the company has a great deal of knowledge, experience and capacity.

Purchase of moulds

Within our group we have a very high capacity to build many dozens of moulds each year. However, it sometimes happens that individual projects require so many moulds that our internal capacity is not sufficient to deliver all the moulds on time. In such cases we work with various mould makers in the Netherlands, Germany and China.

In consultation with the customer, we decide where to buy the moulds. Of course, financial, quality and strategic considerations play a role. We always communicate transparently about the various options.

Maintenance and repair

When you have a mould made by us, it is of course guaranteed. However, sometimes things break or wear out. And the most important thing is that any interruption in production is as short as possible.

As the mould making department is located right next to the injection moulding department, the lines of communication are very short. This means that repairs can be carried out quickly and professionally, so that the mould is back in use quickly.
