Micro Mold Embarks on a Facility Renovation

Plastics Business

A major renovation is underway at Micro Mold Co., Inc., Erie, Pennsylvania. Once completed, a new Mori-Seiki 5-axis CNC milling center will be installed and coupled with a System 3R Workmaster robot to create a highly-automated and highly-efficient workcell.

This capital investment will significantly reduce changeover time and resources, compared to a traditional 3-axis machining center and will further enhance Micro Mold’s hard-milling capabilities. Once completed, this new automated workcell will represent the single largest capital investment in the history of the company. Currently, Micro Mold is in the implementation stage of the project. The installation of the 5-axis CNC machining center and 3R robotic system is scheduled to be completed in June.
