Mold Manufacturing and Design for ThermoPlastic

High-speed machining

As well we use high-speed machining, we have fast removal rates, and we use multi-axis milling for lock features for pop-lock lids without the need for specialized custom cutters allowing for quick turn. We have pre-crafted CAM automation for programming, cutting down on programming time, and we can do optional machine probing for inspection if needed.


We can catch problems during the production process, and make the design and the mold work, optimizing the mold design based upon our experience. We can take customer molds with small challenges and improve them on the run.

Quick turn

Sherpa Design has a quick turnaround for aluminum vacuum molds. We’ve been able to consistently deliver within a week to 10 business days.

Our team

Our team has crafted super-precise injection molds for a major footwear manufacturer. The experience developed skills with quick-turn molds, complex parts, quick turn tooling, and aluminum prototypes.
