Custom Molds for Face Mask Production
Maker Mask was looking to make masks more widely available through volume production. They needed a way to validate end-use materials and final design prior to launching full scale injection molding production. Traditional tooling methods were out of scope for design verification, being too costly and time intensive.
Fortify’s engineering team was able to produce a complex mold using Henkel’s customized resin that had high heat deflection and a superior surface finish, two factors critical to the injection molding process.
- Reduced lead time by 6-8 weeks
- Significant cost savings (compared to traditional tooling)
- Design verification
