The Magic Brush Saver is a clever invention that you can attach to any brush and allows you to properly rest the brush on the side of a bucket to keep it out of the paint. The Magic Brush Saver was intended for professional and DIY use -- and helps save you time & money on new brushes. Ray Hepinstall, was inspired to invent the Magic Brush Saver while working as a professional painter over 30 years. He invented the Magic Brush Saver to keep the brush where it belongs - near the paint. Being of creative character, Ray is has been a musician since he was 12 years old - click here to check out his music.
A multi-cavity mold is a a custom plastic injection mold with multiple cavities of the same part that is typically used to reduce piece-part pricing for higher volume parts. If you want more than tens of thousands of parts per month, then a Multi-Cavity Mold is for you. Mold Precision recommends more than a single cavity mold when the capacity is going to be greater than 40,000 pieces a month.
Custom plastic injection molds are used in injection molding processes using an injection molding machine such as the Engel 40 Ton Tiebarless Injection Molder (shown below). These are generally used to produce plastic parts using a core and a cavity, runners & gates. Plastic Injection Molding is a manufacturing process for making plastic parts in large volume. It is generally used in mass-production processes where the same part is being created thousands or millions of times in in a cycle.
MIT is probably the country's premier University for Engineering. Their reputation for cultivating great minds with world changing ideas is unparalleled. You are probably wondering how I have the right to put Mold. Precision Engineering's name next to the name of such a great learning institution. I'm glad you asked because now I can show you my summer vacation photos and tell you "what I did on my summer vacation".
I often get asked "Why is there such a wide spread in mold costs?" If the age old proverb says "You get what you pay for", then the next question is "What am I paying for?" In as few words as possible, I am going to try to explain this, but if I answered this question without writing about molded piece costs, I wouldn't be doing it justice. You probably already know, if you are buying a mold, it's because you want molded parts at the least total cost at your desired quality that meets your scheduling requirements. Therefore, I think it would be best if we talked about this in those terms.
