Manufacturing of World-Class Molds & Dies

Hanson Mold is committed to premium mold and die design. This commitment is clearly shown by our clean, well-planned, state-of-the-art manufacturing plant. Capable of producing anything from small and intricate to large, contoured-part cavities, our modern plant tailors its building process to your customized needs. Recognizing your desire for quality, Hanson Mold builds features into the tooling to minimize scrap and die maintenance costs.

Hanson Mold specializes in hard milling, a process to help improve the overall quality of your product. As specialists in advanced, high-speed and high-performance milling, we recognize that hard milling can improve surface finish, accuracy, reduce production time, lead time and delivery, and even reduce or eliminate electrical discharge machining (EDM).

With our advanced machines and large variety of specialty cutting tools, our team can cut even your most challenging materials with speed and accuracy. With our hard milling services – that can decrease secondary operations – we’ll deliver your job on schedule, and for the right price.

EDM Sinking
Hanson Mold’s sinker EDM machining, like wire EDM, uses spark erosion to machine intricate cavity shapes, holes and threads. Also called conventional EDM, ram EDM, die-sinker, and plunge EDM, EDM sinking employs machined electrodes – often made from copper, graphite, or tungsten – sparks are produced along their surface to erode and sink or plunge the cavity. EDM sinking is ideal for many applications, including sharp corners, threads, ribs, and intricate details.

We can perform EDM sinking on any conductive material, including aluminum, brass, copper, steel, and titanium. Our sinker EDM machines can change tools, allowing us to increase unattended machine time and minimize your cost.

Wire EDM
Wire EDM, which may also be referred to as wire cutting, wire burning, and traveling wire EDM, utilizes spark erosion from a traveling wire electrode to machine or remove material from any electrically conductive material, such as aluminum, brass, carbide, copper, steel, and titanium. Often, the wire electrode consists of brass or zinc-coated brass material.

Hanson Mold has fully-automated high-speed wire EDM machines to serve you, whether your application is a die build, prototype or you require higher-volume production. We can accept a wide variety of files for uncomplicated generation into wire EDM programs. Please contact Hanson Mold to learn what we can offer you.
