making delivers Western quality
Jade China Mold Making
Our China mold making methodology (the Jade Way) starts with our USA based engineering team who qualify and set-up each mold build project using DFM Pro and Moldex3D. At this stage we want to learn as much as possible about your project needs up front. Here we get you involved in the process outside of what your drawings are telling us, what are your end output goals, cycle times, size of presses you will run on. We take a measured approach at the beginning to ensure a better mold design, a smoother mold build, and much quicker end results when it comes to mold trials.
DFM Pro is the best design verification software in the industry and we are loving the results we are seeing by utilizing this powerful engineering software to its fullest potential. Our mold making quality has improved because we adding DFM Pro into our mold making process. Our USA based team are experts in DFM Pro and Moldex3D.
Moldex3D is more than just the best mold flow simulation technology we have ever used. When set-up and leveraged correctly it is like doing first shots on the screen. One of the reasons we include Moldex3D for free with all projects is that using this software saves us money on the back end by helping us identify potential problem areas up front. Plus Moldex3D gives us optimal setting for running injection mold parts, injection mold press settings that match your cycle time requirements. The result of all this preliminary work is that our mold trials are faster, more accurate, and deliver better parts.
Why DFM Pro and Moldex3D?
A big part of our philosophy at Jade is to use technology in tandem with experience so we can make the best possible mold. Yes our team is highly experienced and made up of Westerners with very specific expertise in mold building, but if technology can help make an even better mold and investing in that technology also reduces costs, then why wouldn’t we include in all projects? It is a win-win.
Mold Design Review
DFM, 3D, 2D, BOM, Moldflow. Before we green light any mold build we do a thorough review on the project with the customer, our USA team, and our China team (Westerners). We don’t want to miss a single detail before we hand off the project to our China team.
China (Western) Team
To build molds in China, to Western standards, that will correctly and smoothly operate at speed on your press back in the west, we simply need Westerners working and living in China full-time who manage every aspect of the mold build. Our China based team consists of Western engineers, Western tooling program managers, Western project managers, Western QA/QC department, and Western IT data security. We micro manage all aspects of mold building in China in our Western owned and operated facility in Zhongshan, to ensure Western mold quality.
In-house Mold Testing
With 18 presses ranging from 50T up to 1100T in our 55,000 sq ft mold building factory we have the capacity needed to be able to test multiple tools daily when needed. It is important to have sufficient testing capacity to ensure on-time delivery of molds after first article inspection of T1 samples. We build to Western standards and we test to Western standards by matching the production process you will use in your facility back home. We ship molds that work, not molds that need to be fixed.
At Jade Molds you will always communicate with an experienced Westerner who can deliver you steel or heat treatment certification as needed, or any other documentation that you may require, as well as weekly status updates on the progress of your mold. When you have questions we get you the answers. A typical China supplier will answer yes to anything that they think they understand and ignore questions that they do not understand. Not at Jade. Communication is vitally important to ensure a great mold build that comes in on-time, on-budget, and actually works in your factory. At Jade Molds you will always speak to a Westerner on every aspect of your project.
Our on-time mold delivery record is over 95%. In 80% of the molds we build our process identifies potential design efficiencies and mold build improvements that, in the end, save our customers time and money. We will deliver you a superior mold so you can complete with China on injection mold production jobs.
