Star Rapid offers a unique service that can dramatically reduce tooling lead times up to 50% compared to conventional tool making. We do this by streamlining the entire tooling project, from conception to completion, using a single master machinist who takes ownership of the project from start to finish. If you need plastic injection tools fast, OMOM® may be the solution for you.

What Is OMOM®?

With the One Man One Mold service, we will assign a master machinist to your project with  complete design and scheduling freedom to build the tool in the fastest and most efficient way possible. This process eliminates time-consuming delays in communication between departments and stakeholders. Each machinist works within a dedicated production cell that has all necessary manual and CNC machines and other support equipment to create a finished mold. Modular, quick-change tooling inserts and standardized platforms for making EDM electrodes all contribute to rapid tooling without sacrificing quality.

Is OMOM® The Right Service For You?

Since OMOM® is a specialist service with extremely high attention to detail and speed it comes at a higher price point than our standard plastic injection molding service. To enable the speed of this service, it is best suited to parts with less complex geometries and where a customer prefers to be ‘hands-off’ until the final parts are completed.
