Makuta is really part of my company; Makuta is my partner! If Makuta had not delivered, I might not have a company today.
To reduce prototype time, Makuta has developed a micro molding prototype frame. This frame offers some advantages to our traditional full tool prototyping. Lead time for our rapid prototyping tools is 3 to 4 weeks, as only the inserts must be built for the tool. These inserts are built for prototype runs of less than 20,000 parts.read more
Makuta can help your company with any project, big or small. Our prototyping options are unique in the micro molding industry, and the difference starts with our tools. Our prototype molds are made of hardened steel as opposed to aluminum. This allows us to build upgradeable tooling, which offers a cost savings to our customers.read more
Using state of the art machinery, combined with custom designed robotics, Makuta is able to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with only one manned shift. The machines literally run with the “lights out,” enabling Makuta to remain cost competitive with overseas markets.read more
Makuta develops custom automation for use in various stages of our micro molding process. Automation of precision molded parts eliminates many of the human-induced process variations. In the optimized automated process, parts are produced with little or no human intervention. Automation can improve throughput, increase quality (consistency), and improve yield.read more
Makuta utilizes the proprietary Sansyu mold shuttling system of multi material micro injection molding. This system was created solely by Sansyu and is in use only within the Sansyu Group of companies. This system is designed specifically for Sumitomo 15 and 30 ton machines. It allows for two different grades of material and/or two different colors to be used with in the same cycle.read more
Makuta is part of the $80 million dollar Sansyu Group of companies, the oldest and largest micro molding and micro-mold making company in the world. Sansyu has been the leader in micro precision since 1942, when the company began production of miniature clock components. Throughout the 60’s and 70’s production shifted towards high quality, precision plastic components as the markets for these products grew within the automotive and electronics industries.read more
