    Injection Mould Tools

    Injection Moulding Tools
    You can either provide your component design (CAD file) or we will help you with product design from concept to final part, using all the latest advances in mould tool design, such as,
     
    • Twin shot mould
    • Over moulds
    • Unscrewing tools
    • Hot runner systems
    • Hydraulic cores

     

    Twin Shot Moulds: Where to give a mixed finish/colour, the finish/colour has to come from a single tool.

    Over Moulds: Where to give a mixed finish, each finish will come from a different tool.

    Unscrewing Tools: Where threads need to be added to the product as part of the finishing process.

    Hot Runner Systems: Which handle multi-impression work or very large parts that require several feed gates.

    Hydraulic Cores: Which enable the retrieving of components where space is limited.

    What our Customers say

    In order to monitor our performance, we have started sending feedback questionnaires to our customers on completion of the tools. Listed below is some of the feedback we have recieved from our customers

     

    General Coments
    "I have become accustomed to late deliveries, brush-offs and excuses, but your company has gone a long way to restore my faith in the British Tool Making Industry. Right from the start, the speed with which you return quotes helps to reduce the bottlenecks that so often occurred due to previous toolmakers' delays in replying. Also your response and turnaround on the post-build modifications due to my own oversight helped us to keep the project on time and therefore our customers happy." - S.G., Devon

     

    Speed and Delivery

    "Fast turn around has enabled [my company] to win orders it might otherwise have lost." - R.J., Lancashire
    "Excellent - as promised, much appreciated." - R.J.,
