HELI MOULD was founded in 1980 to manufacture moulds, particularly for the automotive industry. Located in Ningbo, a modern international port city, the Chinese company has always been strongly committed to innovation, research and development of casting dies, making it one of the country’s key high-tech firms in the steel casting industry. It boasts an AAA enterprise credit rating from the China Die & Mould Industry Association.
Heli Mould specialises in manufacturing dies for the auto industry. It manufactures automobile engine cylinder block moulds, engine cylinder head moulds, transmission case moulds, impact beams, bumpers, automotive flywheel housings and rail transit gearbox housings.
Working with a sector as demanding as the automotive industry it is essential to have the best suppliers. Heli Mould’s search for the best EDM supplier brought it to ONA and an assurance of improvement in its production processes. Seeking to provide optimal service to its customers, the Chinese firm were drawn by ONA‘s quality and no-nonsense approach.
ONA die-sink machines (Heli Mould has two QX7 models) ensure savings on electrodes in the manufacturing processes. This means that the firm can produce more moulds with fewer electrodes. Moreover, the manufacturing process is fully automated, removing the need to change electrodes and thus preventing any loss in production time. All this means more moulds in less time—and, thus, more cost-effective production.
