Production Molding

While most molders view short-run production orders as inconvenient or disruptive, Taurus Engineering welcomes the business. Always looking for ways to exceed our customer’s expectations, we have developed processes and systems that assure maximum efficiency, insure the highest quality standards, and focus on quick order turnaround. We’ve raised the bar high when it comes to timely job set-ups and tear-downs, scheduling flexibility, and providing our customers lead-times that work for them. In today’s Just-In-Time (JIT) world and minimum inventories, Taurus Engineering understands the demands placed on our customers and work to accommodate their short-run production needs.

White Room Molding

Taurus Engineering has implemented operations that meet strict quality standards and requirements for producing a medical product. We adhere to ISO 13485 medical standards for process and tool validations. Many medical OEM’s require process validations and/or PQ and OQ runs for dimensional and process stability.Prototype/production molding, clean room molding, white room molding

The “White Room” is equipped with positive airflow utilizing HEPA air filtration. Our staff is well trained to pay strict attention to cleanliness and product quality. In order to ensure a clean molding environment, they are required to wear smocks, bouffant caps, and non-latex gloves.
