Job Description for Mold Maker

Mold makers create, adjust, and adapt the molds used in cast manufacturing. Most frequently, tool and machine parts manufacturers are the employers for mold makers. Mold makers typically work with specifications from a design team, and they need to know how to work from schematics and be familiar with computer-aided design (CAD) programs for this purpose. The mold maker then creates initial molds. Upon the successful completion of production runs and quality control for parts from the casting, the maker then puts the mold into the production cycle. Mold makers often work with existing parts, making necessary adjustments to existing molds and conforming existing molds to new product specifications.
