A well manufactured, high quality plug is essential to making moulds for all end products, from small components to large sections. An accurate plug, with a high quality finish, is the end result, ready for mould making. The plugs are milled by CNC milling machine for machining of composite materials. CNC machine produces plugs with the surface tolerances of up to 0.17-0.2 mm and therefore it is possible to produce large high-quality plugs.
Baltic Tooling requires 3D models of the products. The models must be created using a program that supports a file format that can be imported into the formats such as PARASOLID, STEP or IGES etc. A plug that has been CNC milled, must be sanded and polished before it can be used to take a production mould. Baltic Tooling`s plugs are tailored to the customers’ needs. All plugs are manufactured on a foundation of rigid plywood or steel frame. The surfaces of the ready-milled plugs consist of special modelling paste.
We always focus on creating strong and stable plugs. The materials and composition are chosen with a view to ensuring a homogeneous and stable plug surface.
