Single Source Technologies Announces Distribution of Millutensil Spotting Presses

Auburn Hills, Mich. – June 17, 2015 - Single Source Technologies (SST), a North American distributor of machinery brands such as Makino, is pleased to announce the addition of Millutensil spotting presses to its offering of advanced die and mold manufacturing solutions. The addition of Millutensil enables SST to offer a highly precise, quick-turn solution for verifying the quality of finished dies and molds, further enhancing customers’ global competitiveness.

“With increasing design complexity, technical standards and lead-time requirements for dies and molds, traditional methods for spotting inhibit long-term competitiveness, which is why SST is excited to offer Millutensil spotting presses,” said David Warren, SST national sales manager. “Millutensil spotting presses have a proven history of reducing die and mold production costs through easier adjusting, checking and repairing of complex molds. The net result is shorter lead-times, greater safety, higher quality and improved workforce efficiency.”

With more than 60 years of innovation, Millutensil has developed a worldwide reputation for its die and mold spotting presses and press equipment. Millutensil spotting presses are designed to improve production speed and safety by reducing time-intensive mold handling and delays due to tilting upon opening and closure. With the push of two buttons, Millutensil spotting presses can place mold halves in a comfortable working position and carry out a test injection or spotting stroke. This capability is particularly advantageous in the manufacture and reconditioning of large, complex molds.

The spotting presses’ resin injection unit enables manufacturers to produce sample castings in two distinct, reusable special thermoplastics. The toolmaker can then check the casting characteristics, the complete mold filling, the dimensional accuracy and tightness of the mold as well as undercuts and de-molding. This feature supports the production of higher quality dies and molds with longer service life and helps reduce correction grinding through reproducibility.

Millutensil spotting presses are now available at SST. For pricing and inquiries, please contact SST at (248) 232-6250 or email
