About our company

The company TIRAD, s.r.o. a Czech manufacturer of custom mold bases, plates, frames and other parts for the injection molding (w/227 employees) offers its services in the following areas:

  • complete production of mold bases - very high accuracy CNC-machining of plates, frames and components for molds - clamping plate, bearing plate, cavity plate, manifold plate - for hot runner, (core) fixing plate, stripper plate, rack plate, (ejector) retainer plate, insulator plate, rails and other high quality plates (in position accuracy +-0.01mm/1000mm (+-0.00039 inches) or diameters and pockets +-0.005mm) according to your drawings. The precise pocket depth can be finished up to 350mm.
  • manifolds– hot runners production

All our machines for production are CNC-controlled.


We machine tool steels - alloyed: e.g. 1.2085 (X33CrS16), 1.2316 (X36CrMo17), RAMAX S (Uddeholm Sweden X36CrMo17), 1.2312 (40CrMnMoS8-6), 1.1730 (C45U; C45W) and many others. Besides we machine large workpieces – castings and weldments, which are supplied by our customers.

In most cases we buy the material for the mold bases by ourselves (at BÖHLER UDDEHOLM, BOGNER, DEW - Deutsche Edelstahlwerke and others) or you can supply us with your own material. Our tendency is the very high accurate cutting operation, that is why we prefer the delivery of 6-sides fine-milled blocks from suppliers or customers.

Drawings - formats:

We use electronic drawings and models:

  • 2,5D-drawings in formats: dwg; dxf
  • 3D-models in native formats of: PTC Pro-Engineer (2001, Wildfire 5.0), CATIA (v4, v5), Parasolid, Unigraphics or in common formats: STEP, IGES, VDA … but we are able to work with any formats as well.

including gun deep drilling - with NC-dumper axis - up to 4 tons a workpiece, 1,500 mm depth of gun drilling from one side  

Standard production process:

at the Mold bases production (plates, hot runners, manifolds):

  • gun drilling
  • milling - roughing
  • surface grinding
  • milling - finishing
  • manually operations, calibration, verification
  • 3D-coordinate measuring on our 3D-coordinate measuring machines up to 4,000 kg (3,000 x 1,500 mm; 118 x 59 inches)
  • mold base assembly - possibly if requested by the customer

Our production capacity:

We are able to complete approx. 300 plates for multi-cavity injection molds per month (depending on their complexity)!
Generally we offer 120.000 machine hours a year to our customers!
We do not produce complete injection molds, we specialize in mold plates production only (mold bases), but in a very high accuracy.


We cooperate with companies from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, USA, Canada, Ireland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, where 100% of our income has been generated.
