MARKETS

AUTOMOTIVE SAFETY & FUNCTIONAL

Structural components are often complex assemblies involving over-molded inserts and stampings. We use automated processes to keep speeds up and costs down.

AUTOMOTIVE

CLASS A

Auto interiors require precise tolerances, competitive pricing, and large runs. These often require secondary assembly processes including: foam, clips, adhesive tape, fasteners, dampeners, lighting, 2d barcodes, etc. We can also manage outsourced paint coatings on products.

AUTOMOTIVE EXTERIORS

Automotive exteriors require strong UV protection and color hold. Most products have mold-in color or a managed outsourced paint coating. Examples are trim panels or body side moldings.

BUILDING PRODUCTS

Building products often require strong UV packages, the ability to produce many colors, and provide competitive pricing. We have made products for HVAC, roofing and siding accessory applications.

SPORTING GOODS

Tolerances are often key for the sporting goods products. They typically consist of multi-piece assemblies that require a snap fit. Example: fishing lures

HOME/ GARDEN

Home and garden products often are quite large and require large presses. Large presses and the ability to overmold has helped Maple Mold compete in this market.

CHILDREN'S TOYS

Maple Mold has the capability to make children toys. Much consideration must go into safety and the life of the product once molded.
