We’re witnessing a paradigm shift in global manufacturing. Unprecedented demand for tool transfers into the USA manufacturing sector is top of mind for R&D engineers, technical sourcing leads, and supplier engineers. With that, micro mold tool transfers are a major consideration.
USA Micro Mold Tool Transfer
Our in-house DfMM (Design for Micro Molding) teams and tooling teams will tell you a tool transfer rarely involve actually moving the tool to a new facility and often involves creating a new tool to match old specifications. It requires savvy engineers to pull this off quickly—something they have decades of experience doing for the world’s biggest OEMs.
R&D engineers, technical sourcing leads, and supplier engineer questions often focus on capacity, floor space, current employee headcount, and available onsite capabilities. There’s also interest in vertical integration, the ability to service a global presence and focus on how suppliers and manufacturing partners will immediately meet rapidly increasing demand. Engineers and technical sourcing teams want immediate micro mold tool transfers and immediate production without hiccups.
