Technical & Tooling Centre
Take advantage of our technical expertise and world-class tooling knowledge to achieve your desired results in any engineering polymer. We can guide your components from their initial conceptual stage through to full scale production, advising and honing your moulding operations as we go. Our in-house tool 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 you on the best material for your application, that delivers a cost-effective tooling investment.
We use the latest 3D modelling software from Vero VISI CAD – to support recognised file-sharing such as the ‘STEP’, ‘IGES’ and ‘Parasolid’ formats. This software allows us to perform a full tool design and mould flow analysis. We can also advise on changes to your component to improve the process ability and enhance the overall appearance of your product.
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 and multi-cavity moulds, with hydraulic core pulling where required and utilising the latest hot runner technology, and added jigs and fixtures if necessary for product stability. Tools can be manufactured in Aluminium, P.20 steel and various hardened tool steels to match your products requirements.
Modifications to your new tools can also be carried out, as well as a repair service to existing tooling if the need arises. ISIR and PPAP submissions and documentation are carried out on all new products.
Looking for a cost-effective tool procurement solution? We offer a competitive service for tool sourcing from Europe, Asia and the UK.
