Lead Times

We have invested in state-of-the-art technology and equipment to insure we provide our customers with competitive lead times. Progress reports are routinely sent to our customers, along with digital photographs, to track the status of the molds.

Tool Try-Outs

We perform complete tool try-outs in Portugal. Sample parts are produced from the mold, measured on our coordinate measuring machine, and shipped via air freight to the customer for approval.

Shipment

Tools are shipped back to the United States either by ocean freight or air freight.

We have two facilities, one located near Marinha Grande, Portugal, which specializes in the design and manufacture of molds; our US factory specializes in routine maintenance of molds manufactured by our Portuguese facilities.

Why Portugal?

Portugal has one of the largest mold-making industries in the world, and a global reputation for the design and fabrication of world-class quality molds.

Steels

We work with world-class quality steels from Germany and Sweden.

Engineering Design

Our engineering team develops mold designs in Pro-Engineer. We review the concept and engineering drawings with your team before cutting any steel.

AQM Design

Our staff of tooling engineers, CAD designers, plastics engineers, and material engineers works closely with our customers to insure your mold design meets your expectations. We provide frequent progress reports, complete with digital photos, to update our customers on the status of their mold throughout the fabrication and assembly process. All molds undergo a rigorous tool try-out in an injection molding press prior to shipment - to insure the molded part meets our customer's specifications. We even deliver the sample parts produced from your mold - complete with the tool try-out statistics.
