RPM designs Injection Mould tool and delivers in short timeframe

Fisher & Paykel is New Zealand’s leading whiteware appliance producer and has been a long time customer of RPM for both press tooling and injection moulds.

Weighing in at 14 tons, this injection mould for producing tubs for dish drawer machines is the biggest single injection moulding tool RPM has produced for Fisher & Paykel.

Project Challenges;

  • Impressive 24 week design, manufacture, test and deliver timeframe
  • Largest wedge tool manufactured by RPM at the time
  • Managing client changes throughout the build program
  • Scheduling the CNC milling on a 24/7 basis
  • High content of beryllium copper

Fisher & Paykel were delighted with RPM’s impressive tool design and build time of 24 weeks.

The project required two of the design team to work on and manage the program right from the outset. The procurement Manager was also extensively involved to ensure that there were no production delays caused by late delivery of product from local and international suppliers. Staff resources were rostered to maintain all production ensuring that all clients work would be delivered on time.

We are proud both of our relationship with Fisher & Paykel and of the high quality tools we have produced for them.

RPM is always happy to discuss the design of purpose built Injection Moulds to suit your particular application.
