By combining the best talent with proper technology to control the injection molding process, they continue to manufacture consistently high quality parts for every customer.
“We also believe that culture is a strategic advantage and when we can foster an environment where people care for each other they will take care of the equipment, resin, customers and company”, says Michael Keown who is the Tooling Manager for the company.

Their in-house tooling group provides routine preventative tooling maintenance and tooling repairs to keep customer production running on-time.

As one of the most productive manufacturers in the state, Texas Injection Molding operates 18 plastic injection molding machines ranging from 55 tons to 800 tons and operate 3 shifts, 5 – 7 days per week.

They also run a HURCO VMX50S with a 15k rpm spindle which is one of the machines they use BobCAD-CAM to program parts with. Prior to BobCAD-CAM software, they needed the ability to do 3D surfacing which is almost impossible without a CAD-CAM product. “With the wide range of work we do in the shop we rely on the program being integrated as CAD and CAM in one, low-cost and great customer service”, says Keown.

Their CAD-CAM programmer experienced an increase in ease of use and decrease in programming time from having used the Dynamic Machining Strategy™ functionality as well. “Our CAM programmer was normally used to a different, popular CAD-CAM system before BobCAD-CAM, but has found it very easy to make the transfer to using BobCAD-CAM software,” says Keown.

He continues, “We have used many CAM software products, but BobCAD-CAM is one of the easier ones to use, the cheapest we found for what we need our CAM to do and the customer service is excellent. Not only that, but BobCAD-CAM is one of the only CAD-CAM systems I know of that has social media and YouTube help & interaction.”
