Mold Qualification Services

Inspection & Qualification

Westminster uniquely offers mold qualification services to ensure quality and performance requirements are met. In this critical phase, we are able to debug the mold, optimize the mold for production, and develop a repeatable, scientifically proven process.

Our toolmakers can conduct mold optimization activities in a timely manner by having our Technology Center adjacent to our mold manufacturing facility. These capabilities enable our customers to get products to market faster.
