Technical & Tooling Centre

Take advantage of our technical expertise and world-class tooling centre to achieve cutting-edge results in engineering plastic. We can guide your components from their initial conceptual stage through to full, mass-scale production, advising and honing your moulding operations as we go. Our in-house tooling room offers Milling, Spark Erosion, Grinding and Turning services. We create, maintain and repair your moulding tools, so you’re always benefitting from the latest advances in technology.

Specialists in engineering plastics

Our skilled and experienced engineers have a wealth of knowledge about thermoset, thermoplastic and plastic injection moulding. This means we’re perfectly placed to advise on material selection that performs beyond what you expect, and delivers a cost-effective investment.

We use 3D modelling software – Vero VISI CAD – to support recognised file-sharing such as the ‘STEP’, ‘IGES’ and ‘Parasolid’ formats. These allow us to perform a full tool design and mould flow analysis.

What’s more, we can create sample components (SLA, SLS, and 3D digital print to name a few) to act as a prototype for your requirements. It’s a complete Design For Manufacture service to help pre-production on its way.

A generous array of tooling solutions

Our fully equipped tooling centre enables us to produce single/multi-cavity moulds, multi-hydraulic core pulls, and added jigs and fixtures for product integration. These intricate designs can be worked from aluminium, P20 steel and more.

We also carry on to the post-moulding phase, ensuring that your tools keep performing as they should. You’ll then get a top-to-bottom PPAP, ISR and test report – a standard element of our obligations to you.

Looking for a cost-effective tool procurement solution? We offer a competitive service for tool sourcing from Europe, Asia and the UK too.
