Major design changes allowed

Our process is flexible and accommodates major design (mold) changes after every 30 shots*, allowing for adaptability and improvement to ensure the end product meets your specific needs.

Create based on specific mold methods

Our advanced production process is adaptable and can shift to accommodate various molding methods, providing us with the flexibility to best suit your project's specific requirements.

Competitor's molds are limited

Unlike other providers whose vacuum casting molds yield only 25 consistent parts of lower quality, our methods ensure a larger output with maintained consistency and superior quality.

Produce parts with undercuts

Thanks to our innovative technology, we can produce complex parts with undercuts without the need for drafting, ensuring high precision and quality for more intricate designs.

No Minimum Order Quantity

We don't impose minimum orders, whether you require one unit, 200 or 1,000, we are committed to delivering a consistent level of quality prototypes.

Parts with Complex Design or Geometry

If your design or part geometry is not suited for plastic injection or injection molding tooling, our process flexibility and experienced team can create an alternative solution to ensure successful runs.

Suited to Your Unique Project Demands

Matched for Uncertain Production Volumes

Navigate through projects with uncertain future production volumes seamlessly. Trust in our robust prototype molds to guide you through the initial production stages.

Prolonged Tool Life

Stand apart with SIMT extended tool life, capable of up to 50,000 shots*. That’s a fivefold improvement compared to the 10,000 shots guaranteed by typical low-volume tooling.

Simplified Tool Revisions

Benefit from the flexibility of our stainless tooling. Made from easily weldable and insertable steel, these molds are ideal for projects where design alterations might be necessary along the way.

VIP Project Management

Benefit from a dedicated PM (one-point of contact) who is well-versed in your project goals, available in your time zone, and communicates in your language. This allows for seamless integration with ARRK's diverse range of press sizes, ranging from 100Ton to 1,000Ton. (Design model: John Gonzalez. Prototype: Reymundo Cortez. Injection Molding: Mike Reed).

Develop via DFM & Moldflow

When faced with complex design scenarios or geometries, our Design for Manufacturability (DFM) and Moldflow reports come into play. They enable our proficient team to successfully navigate through manufacturing challenges, ensuring your design aspirations meet production realities.
