Why Choose Us
First Class Service
We aim to supply a quality service from outset to completion. We promise a prompt quotation following discussion and understanding of application and specification. When agreement upon commercial and lead time considerations are made we undertake to deliver a quality product on time. We have capacity to 12.5 tonnes for mould tooling. CNC machining capacity to 2.4m in length. All manufacturing and finishing processes are subject to stringent compliance control. Our fully skilled team of staff understand that quality is the responsibility of all. You can expect an honest, friendly, professional, and tailored service from our team. You will see why are proud of our long held reputation for quality and on time delivery.
Product & Mould Quality
With 33 years of experience in design and manufacture you can be assured of delivery of fit for purpose, value for money mould tooling and engineered components. We only use the highest quality steels, materials and ancillary items. Certificates of conformity are supplied as a matter of course along with accredited heat treatment certification. We have an ongoing commitment to using the very best CNC machinery and cutting tool technology. Having invested in six new machines within the last six years you can be assured that your tooling is being manufactured on the most accurate equipment. Full design data is supplied with all moulds produced. A maintenance support plan can also be provided.
Aftercare service and maintenance
With every mould an information pack is provided with 2D and 3D drawings. We always archive drawings and can provide copies upon request. A follow up maintenance programme package can be provided with staged check up, service and planned maintenance profiling.
We strongly believe in the value of open two-way honest communication. Changes can be easily adopted in the design and development stage or midstream tuning during manufacture if communicated at the earliest opportunity. If there is to be any impact to the agreed timings for any reason we believe it to be the best policy to discuss at the earliest point in order that contingencies can be actioned.
Employing Autodesk Delcam Powershape Ultimate software our fully skilled in-house Design Engineers can help you to engineer the optimum solution to suit the specification brief, budget, and expected manufacturing lead time. Whether it be plastic injection mould tooling, thermoset compression mould tooling, thermoset compression transfer tooling, blow moulds, extruders, Rim tooling, or prototype moulds, we will design high quality tooling to meet product specification and accuracy, cycle time, and tool life expectation. Other areas covered include product design, advice on product design relating to suitability to sustainable tooling, reverse engineering, moldflow analysis. Also advice upon steel type suitability and moulding media suitability to your application. Particular attention is always paid to mould temperature control and mould venting to maximise productivity throughput. We are proud of our reputation for the design and manufacture of high quality durable mould tooling. We handle all commonly used drawing file formats.
We believe that the foundation to the success of a new tooling programme is effective project management. An initial meeting will establish scope of the project and identify responsibilties. At the outset agreed key stage timings are agreed upon, including final customer drawing release, submission of general assembly drawings for steel sizing and type approval, order of materials, and commencement of manufacture. We submit timing plans outlining all key stages in design and manufacture. Progressive photographic reporting or video are also supplied. Tool validation sampling services can be provided. Machine robot heads, assembly fixtures, checking fixtures, gauges, and ancillary items such as hot runner controllers can also be supplied.
