Degating

West Michigan Molding

About

Innovation and efficient manufacturing techniques have helped West Michigan Molding become a leader in providing high quality plastic parts.  Automating their degating was a natural step for this forward-thinking company.  Due to floorspace constraints and anticipation of future degating needs, Criterion suggested they purchase an interchangeable system which would require a smaller investment for each future degating application by repurposing the system base.
