Recommended for low volume, production quality parts. Assuming 3D printing doesn’t suffice to meet the functional requirements of your part, BeraTek has developed a proprietary prototype molding technique that offers a reasonably priced mold designed to produce a few hundred parts.
A dedicated mold with the maximum number of cavities to optimize the piece part cost and cycle time/unit in the press.
MUD base tooling sits right in the middle of the tooling cost spectrum and is often viewed as a hybrid of the two above options. MUD Base tooling reduces your up-front tooling investment while maintaining a production equivalent per unit cost.
BeraTek is fortunate to have a long-standing relationship with a partner company in Guangdong, China. We are often faced with scenarios where price is the driving force behind a given project. In effort to reduce upfront tooling investment, we often consider offshore tooling options to obtain a production or MUD Base tool more economically.
