CAD Software: Tool Making
State of the art CAD/CAM software is used in the Design Office which is located within the toolroom's design office
Our trained operators first design the tools using CAD and then manufacture them using CAM.
High quality CNC lathes and milling machines are used to manufacture the tool parts with extremely high accuracy
A brand new spark erosion machine is used to produce complex shapes which saves an enormous amount of time.
A fourth axis can be fitted to our milling machines
This system is controlled by bespoke software and makes the machines much more versatile.
Hot runner systems can be included in the tools for high batch quantity mouldings
These tips dramatically reduce the cost of the parts as there is no additional material for the sprue and no labour is required to trim the moulding.
