About

Staying Focused on Being Essential

In today's dynamic global economy, there's no standing still.  Continuous innovation and decisive action are critical to stay ahead of the intensifying competition.  This is the reality for every molder, moldmaker, and mold designer and it's the driving force behind today's DME worldwide.

For seven decades, DME has been a mold technologies leader. Our catalog remains the industry’s broadest, our products the benchmark of high quality. And we continue to provide customers with knowledge, expertise and service that can’t be matched. But we aren’t satisfied—because our customers’ needs keep evolving, and we’re determined to help them succeed.

Customers around the world count on DME for mold bases and components, hot runner systems, mold controls, our Master Unit Die (MUD) mold inserts, die cast tooling technology—and all the supporting resources that come with our products.

DME complements the industry's broadest line of mold technology products and services with unsurpassed knowledge and expertise—the kind that can only come from helping thousands of customers of all sizes solve their toughest challenges on the shop floor. DME developed a logistics infrastructure that ensures speed and accuracy across the order-to-shipment continuum. DME built a support organization unrivaled for its ability to help customers when and where they need help. And, we continue to strengthen our presence in locations around the world.


Quick Strip is the new standard for plastic part ejection.

In 1942, Ted Quarnstrom founded Detroit Mold Engineering (today’s DME Company) to provide mold bases in standard sizes, ready for machining of the cavity. It’s an innovation that other suppliers have followed ever since.

Today's DME is aggressively developing new products that help our customers capture emerging markets, advance environmental initiatives and more.  Working with our parent company, Milacron, we're also bringing customers new insights into their processing-related concerns.

In the global marketplace, customers' needs keep evolving.  That's why being essential to our customers' success is the only support that matters.  After all, we're more than a manufacturer.  More than a distributor.  We're an essential resource.  Our customers' challenges keep changing, and we're helping them adapt every step of the way.

The Widest Selection. The Highest Quality.

Our products continue to set industry standards in tooling technology against which all others are compared. We're also developing global product platforms that provide reliability to our multinational customers, while allowing for regional customization. And through rigorous, continuous quality assurance and control measures, we ensure the superior quality and design of every product we provide.
