Diversified Plastics Increases Plastics Mold Production Capabilities

MINNEAPOLIS MN-To fulfill customer expectations and grow into new markets, Diversified Plastics Inc., injection molder of high-precision, close tolerance, small- to medium-sized injection molded components, recently expanded its mold production capabilities and increased its production with the acquisition of a high-speed, high-accuracy machining center from Haas Automation Inc.

The VM-2 vertical milling machine allows the design tool and engineering subsidiary of Diversified Plastics to produce high-quality molds with a fine surface finish. From these molds, it is able to produce very small, high-precision injection-molded parts that are used in the medical device and aerospace industries. With a positional accuracy of ± 0.0002 inches, the machine can create complex mold designs for a multitude of industries.
