Precision Plastic Mould Tools for the Automotive & Aerospace Industries

Tooling designed for switches, knobs, trim panels,  mechanical parts, under-bonnet plastic components, air flow components…

With an increased requirement for weight and cost savings within the automotive and aerospace industry, many of our clients are now moving previously metal components over into a plastic manufacturing methods. Most of these parts can be manufactured using injection/insert/overmoulding and twin shot methods, producing components with superior performance and extreme weight saving in most instances.

 

Using the Moldflow simulation process we can ensure that any tooling developed will result in moulded parts with great accuracy and repeatability for a range of automotive and aerospace applications. We have the expertise in polymers and plastics ranging right through to physical and mechanical testing under a wide range of conditions, from weathering to chemical exposure.

PRODUCTION INSIGHT

Tooling manufacturer enabling you to create durable and heavily resistant plastic components

Designing tooling for either small or large systems the process is the same requiring precise engineering skills. Our highly skilled workforce use the latest CAD and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) physical prototypes and experiments in the design phase to develop improved components.

 

From concept through to manufacture the customer is involved in the process. Due to the complexity of the pre study documentation illustrating how the tool is manufactured we find this information is invaluable when providing customer familiarisation and providing after care of the new model.
