Precision Moldmaking and Design

Built-Rite Tool & Die Inc. has a staff of talented design engineers with extensive part and mold design experience. Through collaborative consultations with our customers our engineering team can ensure that part design meets the requirement of the customer, and the mold designs are optimum for the molding process. Built-Rite’s engineering team is competent in 3D design technology using the latest version of Solidworks and Pro-Engineer (Wildfire), and Kubotec (KeyCreator). By designing in 3D, Built-Rite’s engineering department can supply the CNC department with 3D models along with their detailed prints.

Though we have dedicated CNC programmers, every mold maker at Built-Rite is proficient in the use of CAM (computer aided machining) software. Using Mastercam CAM software, we can directly import a solid model file and immediately begin the machining process while always maintaining the integrity of the model. If the model changes, Mastercam automatically updates the cutter paths, thereby ensuring that no mistakes are made due ot changes in the geometry.
