The True Cost of a Mold

When you consider all the variables affecting overall cost, think about how long your mold will last before it needs to be replaced. Think about any maintenance it could incur throughout its lifespan. Think about how many shots it will be good for. A1 guarantees our molds are good for 1 million shots*. We promise quality parts, and understand the customer’s need to do it right the first time.
* When molds are properly evaluated, adjusted, and maintained
