It’s no small thing when a company decides it is time to move a plastics molding tool. This usually signals that the company is moving in a different direction, due to any number of reasons. However, many companies are fearful of the relocation process and have even opted to incur the greater expense of building a new tool at the new facility instead of transporting their current one. While their concerns are not totally unfounded, generally with the correct process and safeguards in place a tool transfer is a perfectly viable option. However, it’s important to understand tool relocation and know the proper steps to take so you are comfortable with the process when the time arises.
