Diversified Plastics Inc. has added a new high-speed machining center to boost its mold-making capabilities.
The Minneapolis-based company purchased a high-accuracy machining center from Oxnard, Calif.-based Haas Automation Inc. that will allow it to produce molds requiring a high level of accuracy, which will in turn allow molders to turn out high-precision injection molded parts for the medical or aerospace industries, the company said in a May 28 press release.
The machining center also allows for faster tool changes and lights-out production, which in turn decreases lead times, said Vice President Annette Lund.
Diversified Plastics has both injection molding and mold making. It expects to use the new equipment to produce molds for a variety of businesses.
