Our History

Engrave Inc. was founded in 1976 by Robert E. Polewski. As Director of Research and Development for Kenner Products, a major toy manufacturer, Mr. Polewski was keenly aware of the lack of both mold makers and molders willing to provide short run services so critical to the development process. He envisioned a small shop capable of producing high quality, short run tooling, that could readily accept engineering changes. In addition, he needed very short lead times, low cost, and a cooperative vendor willing to commit his equipment for hours as opposed to weeks or months. At its inception, the company’s primary focus was the manufacture of aluminum cores and cavities to aid the R&D departments in the development of new products. These tools were produced on pantographs, employing a process referred to as “Three Dimensional Copy Milling.” The company also produced very intricate embossing and stamping dies, thus the name Engrave Inc. was chosen. Engrave Inc. entered the injection molding field in 1979 in an effort to offer its customers a sole source for their plastic needs. The ensuing years provided a wealth of knowledge in both tooling and molding in long and short run applications.  We began to experiment with aluminum molds to determine their suitability for limited production runs. Convincing skeptical buyers that our product could perform comparably with their hardened steel tooling in carefully selected areas, proved to be a challenge. We worked closely with an aluminum supplier in testing its new materials for long run injection molding. Our results proved so successful that we were invited to the National Plastics Expo in 1990, where a number of our high volume aluminum molds were featured.  Todays Engrave Inc. is a full service supplier, offering both steel and aluminum tooling, and injection molding capabilities from short run to multi-million piece orders.

Custom Plastic Injection Molding and Mold Making

For more than 40 years our high quality aluminum injection molds have allowed our customers to cut costs and lead times, with no sacrifice to quality or reliability. Engrave Inc. has changed the perception of “aluminum for prototypes only” by carefully evaluating each individual customers needs. We have successfully molded a wide range of materials in aluminum molds including engineering grades, glass and fiber filled, and exotics. Newer high quality aluminums (QC7 – QC10), specifically manufactured for injection molds, are 20-25% harder than many Chinese steels used in off- shore tools. Aluminum is stable, machines quickly and cleanly, can be chemically textured, and mold temperatures are easy to control. Our staff understands aluminum molds, and we stand behind what we sell. We will unconditionally guarantee any mold that we build, for as long as it is in our possession. With over 40 years experience, we can evaluate your specific needs and recommend the right choice!

4,500,00 Parts in Aluminum Mold This 8 cavity aluminum mold, with an irregularly shaped parting line, produced more than 4,500,000 polypropylene teething rings over its multi- year run. Our customer was unsure of the projects success and needed to enter the market quickly and with little up front cost. We suggested an aluminum mold. A smooth parting line, with no flash was critical to producing an acceptable part. The parting line was resurfaced only once during its long unexpected run. It is just one of many success stories that our customers have achieved in partnership with Engrave Inc.
