Any one care to elaborate on the use of the new moulding machine Axiom has coming or is this simply a new bigger and better CNC machine?

It just mentions they are getting a new molding machine and they are clearing out stock to make room.

I never paid attention to the spelling and since I am doing alot of wood work right now I went with 'moulding' instead of the correct 'molding'. I will guess (led to this via email with mojo) this new piece of equipment is for plastics and enables them to make new speaker grilles, amp enclosures etc. in house.

This is what happens when one tries to load 600 tons of rocks onto a truck with a capacity of just less than 400 tons...

Ah yes, the one I have never seen... Fits right in to the owners club I could never get into and the Bluejays tickets I won the year they went on strike.

So this would be an injection molding machine? Interesting.

Here you go Fred an excerpt from the newsletter;

"Melting snow and lake ice in Northern Ontario signals Spring is in the air, and at Axiom’s factory, we’ve opened up a big space in the factory to accommodate a new 400-ton molding machine that is about to arrive."

Yeah, sounds like an injection molding machine, quite a substancial investment. It makes me wonder if they have other plans beyond speaker grills ect. Did you say the sub amp enclosures are plastic?
