Thornhurst President Fred Daniels provides creative, experienced leadership.

Over 30 years of mold design experience and leadership

When it comes to mold design creativity and development, you can rely on Thornhurst to make it work. Our experience not only looks good on paper, but also runs great at the press.

Thornhurst's president, Fred Daniels, has extensive experience as both a mold maker and mold designer going back to the late 1960s. When he started as a mold maker, he had an aptitude for getting the details right, the first time. Over the years, other designers would send him prints to check before sending them on to their customers.

Fred also has years of experience troubleshooting molds built by others, so he developed techniques, skills and expertise in building molds from the start that needed minimal troubleshooting.

Over his career managing several large mold making shops, Fred performed much of the mold and product design himself. He adopted and became highly proficient in the early versions of CADKEY™. When he went into business for himself, he specialized in both the design and building of extremely complex mold inserts for large mold makers who did not have the in house ability or time to solve some of these tricky problems. Fred makes those same contributions to Thornhurst's leadership and performance, today.


 

Thornhurst talented designers follow Fred's leadership.

An experienced team delivers exceptional results. All our mold designers have formal training in 3D modeling, mold making and machining. In addition to their own skills, knowledge and creativity in 3D modeling, Fred's vast experience helps leverage effective solutions for solving trickier molding issues.

Customer design objectives are first and last.

Thornhurst always focuses directly on our customer's objectives when designing and building a mold.

Some customers want high-cavitations, fast-cycling tools where quality is critical since cycle time must be reduced and downtime minimized. For these customers, we design high quality, hardened steel tools that run for millions of cycles.

Another customer might make a specialty medical part requiring only a few thousand parts to be run. For that customer, we build an inexpensive but high quality aluminum mold.

Other customers make consumer products with no specific quantity projection. For their needs, we might cut a P20 prehardened steel insert directly into an oversized mold base and use a secondary operation instead of building more expensive moving slides in the mold. If the product succeeds, we build the second cavity and add the slides. If the product fails, the customer's cost is minimized, since the initial investment was minimal.

For any product in any quantity, at the start of marketing or for full-bore production, Thornhurst meets its customers' objectives.
