Most of ACO MOLD customers are from North America & Europe, it's a far way and high expenses for the companies go to China to witness the mold test in our factory, but we think it's just, our mold engineers on site would be there and film the most test running for your companies. So after mold test finished, our customer would not just receive samples but also mold test injection parameters, measurement reports, and mold test videos.

Thorough pre-design discussion, a great mold design and excellent mold making capacity. We think these 3 factors are the key to achieve high quality, competitive pricing, fast turn around for an injection mold making project. Usually we do 1 or 2 times mold test before shipping out of our factory.
Mold Packing

The injection mold will be packed with film to prevent air, along with the mold, we will also ship the customer all the mold design data/NC program data, and certificate of all the steel and mold base we used.
