Various Applications

DMS 3 Axis and 5-axis CNC routers are used extensively in the mold and pattern industry to transform digital information into finished products typically made out of wood, MDF and foam. Our routers are also employed to produce prototypes for the automobile, movie and construction industries. Speed and accuracy are of the utmost importance in mold and pattern making, and DMS’ reputation for repeatability makes them an ideal choice for this application.

Common Materials

The most common materials to cut molds on are EVA foam and plastics. These lightweight yet durable materials allow for makers to create molds that are used across a myriad of sectors and industries. Since mold and pattern making touches so many industries, we configure custom machines that can create the mold and patterns that you need for your industry.

Configuring Your Machine

To decide which machine is best for your needs, a representative from DMS will fully try to understand the part you’re cutting from the inside out. They will ask you about your production schedule, your factory space and suggest the right software for your needs. At DMS, we understand that not every CNC fits every production need. So we will work with you to create an asset that will best serve everyone from your factory floor to your end users.
