Weber Manufacturing adds DMG Mori machine

Weber Manufacturing expands, buys huge machine
Weber has recently installed an innovative, high-speed 5 axis machining center, a 2017 DMU 340 P Unimould by DMG Mori (Bielefeld, Germany), the first of its kind in Ontario and just the third such machine in North America.

Weber demonstrating heating, cooling capabilities of its molds
Weber Manufacturing Technologies (Midland, ON, Canada), exhibiting in booth H52, is showing a nickel vapor deposition (NVD) mold for a Class A automotive body panel, demonstrating the tool’s rapid heating and cooling capabilities.


Composite parts are formed in molds, also known as tools. Tools can be made from virtually any material. The material type, shape and complexity depend upon the part and length of production run. Here's a short summary of the issues involved in electing and making tools.
