General Motors stated that the investment project will enable the two parties to change the design of the engine in order to meet the future increase in vehicle emission requirements. In addition, thanks to this investment project, 500 jobs at the company's Moraine plant in Ohio will also be retained.

DMAX was established in 1998, GM and Isuzu currently hold 60% and 40% of their respective shares. Since the company began operations in 2000, it has produced 1.6 million diesel engines to date, and it is used in heavy-duty trucks sold in the United States.

The Moraine plant was built in 2000 at a cost of US$760 million. The 6.6-liter turbo diesel engine produced in the plant was used in pickups such as the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, as well as in the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana trucks.

GM had previously stated that the 2016 Colorado and Canyon mid-range pickups that the company will market next year will carry a 2.6-liter turbo diesel engine. In addition, the company also considers launching a diesel version for the light-weight Silverado and Sierra models, but The relevant plan has not yet been announced.

Q1: What tolerances can you achieve for Automotive Interior Plastic Injection Mould?

There is not a given set of tolerances that fits all processes and materials. In every case, the final tolerances on your part will depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to:

  • Part size
  • Design geometry
  • The number, type, and size of features
  • Material(s)
  • Surface finish
  • Manufacturing process

We will review your design and provide a design for manufacturing review, pointing out any areas where we may not be able to achieve your desired tolerances. It`s helpful to us if you can specify which areas in your design have critical tolerances that must be met and which can be slightly modified if needed to reduce time and costs involved.

Q2: How do you ensure your Automotive interior plastic mould quality?  

In order to deliver high-quality parts every time, we`ve instituted the following steps to ensure you get parts that meet and exceed your expectations.

  • A full design for manufacturing (DFM) review upon initial inquiry. This will be performed by our skilled engineering team, who will alert you to any issues before work begins.
  • All incoming material (metal and plastic) is 100% inspected using our in-house metrology equipment.
  • In-process and first article inspection.
  • Comprehensive final inspection with a full report.

Q3: Is the lead time in working days or calendar days?     

Lead times are quoted in working days. As per our terms and conditions, quoted lead times commence only after completion and confirmation of design for manufacturing review and the beginning of actual production.

Q4: How long does a quotation take?    

In most cases, we respond within a couple of days of receiving an RFQ. However, there may be situations when we must source material from an external supply and therefore the quotation may be delayed accordingly.

Q5: What is the difference between a multi-cavity mold and a family mold?    

A multi-cavity mold has multiple cavities of the same part; a family mold produces a set. For instance, for an electronic enclosure, you may need a front, back, battery door, and a button. Those could all be molded at once in a family mold.

Q6: How long does it take to build an Automotive air conditioner injection mold?

Depending on complexity and our tool room load, it can range from 2 to 12 weeks.

Q7: Can I modify the mold after the first run?    

We can modify our steel molds by additional machining, fill-in welding, welding in additional material, or inserting a replacement feature, for a reasonable cost. If the changes are too great, however, producing a new mold may be more cost-effective than reworking the existing one.
