Tooling from an extensive range of materials
The tools that are used to give composite parts their form can be produced from an extensive range of materials dependant on a number of factors. For example, part complexity, surface quality, operational temperature range, part quantity and lifespan requirements and finally project budget will normally influence the design and materials used to produce composite tooling.
Some examples of the range of tailored tooling solutions we currently manufacture and supply are as follows:
– Pre-production prototype tooling
– Direct tooling for limited volume production
– Large volume composite tooling
– High temperature carbon tooling
– RTM tooling
– Automated wind energy tooling
– Large scale industrial and production boat-building tools
– Metallic tooling
Composite tooling can be manufactured and processed to suit almost any manufacturing requirements. We specialise in providing innovative and cost effective tooling solutions to meet the client’s requirements and budget.
