"First off, I would like to say that it is a pleasure to work with you and Bill of the Titoma organization. You are prime examples of what it takes to make a company a world class end to end manufacturing organization that meets or exceeds needs of its customers. Hats off to you and your owners!"
- Russell Huffman, New Tech Alarms
"I am honored to testify as a satisfied customer. I'm very happy with the work you did during the manufacturing phase, and especially grateful for the attention you gave me during the whole process."
- Edgar Orozco, AVICORVI SA
"We decided to work with Titoma because of their reputation and competitive price. We saved up to 100% higher on NRE (Non Recurring Expenses, i.e. design and molds) and 50% on parts. They delivered full turnkey development with impressive professionalism and quality. We have further products lined up for the coming year, and we will look forward to working with Titoma again."
- Michael Jones, Nigami Enterprises
"I recommend Titoma as an excellent partner for die-casted and injection molded parts. During the whole process we had very fast communication, and Titoma offered many useful suggestions on how to improve our mechanical design to avoid problems. The resulting parts were beautiful with a nice finish, and they managed to achieve the tight tolerances we required."
- Jacek Rydzewski, Grupa Techniczna
"We used to buy our custom made keyboards directly from a factory in Taiwan. Unfortunately, working with them turned out to be a major headache--endless shipping delays, which cost us a lot of customers. Two years ago, we asked Titoma to select and manage a new factory. Having a team on the ground that really understands quality and is able to make decisions on the spot saved us a lot of time and hassle."

Rubber and Urethane Molding
Rubber molding is a fast and affordable method of creating multiple plastic
parts from a single pattern. CPIM can create up to several hundred copies at a time using this method. The
finished parts can be painted and textured as required. Many
CPIM customers use this service to enable marketing efforts and show
mockups of their new products.
Molds can be designed and built to varying degrees of precision, but not at
the same cost. With any type of mold, the mold builder must have some tolerance,
and therefore, each cavity will have some variance from the others. Dimensional
tolerances on the product must include allowances for this fact. The accuracy of
the mold register must also be considered. This is the matching of the various
plates of the mold that form the mold cavity. Register is usually controlled by
dowel pins and bushings or by self-registering cavities. For molds requiring
high precision in dimensions and register, the design work and machining must be
more precise and the cost of the molds will be greater than one with commercial
Trim and Finish
The objectives of trimming and finishing operations are to remove rubber
material-such as flash, which is not a part of the finished product. Often this
is possible without affecting important dimensions, but in other instances, some
material is removed from the part itself. Where thin lips or projections occur
at a mold parting line, mechanical trimming may actually control the finished
Most insert materials (metal, plastic, fabric, etc) have their own standard
tolerances. When designing inserts for molding to rubber, other factors must be
considered, such as fit in the mold cavities, location of the inserts with
respect to other dimensions, proper hole spacing to match with mold pins, and
the fact that inserts at room temperature must fit into a heated mold. In these
matters, the rubber manufacturer can be of service in advising on design
