75 Trillion Possibilities - new SelectBase(TM) Offers Rapid Delivery of Nearly Unlimited Configurations

September 2002 - D-M-E Company's new quick-delivery SelectBase(TM) offers the industry's greatest variety of mold base sizes, steel types, plate thicknesses, and value-added features. Every SelectBase is built-to-order - not off-the-shelf- but most are shipped in just a few days, and all are shipped within five days. SelectBase provides a unique combination of affordability, quick turnaround and extensive feature offerings, with more than 75 trillion possible mold base configurations available.

SelectBase gives mold makers "made-to-order" flexibility with short lead times, allowing a la carte feature selection without special "feature grouping" and added cost for unwanted "extras." Customers can even specify their desired steel type - at the plate level - to customize a mold base that meets their objectives. SelectBase offers 43 nominal mold base sizes from 0808 to 2435 - the widest range of nominal sizes offered in the industry.

o 43 nominal sizes
