Our state-of-the-art UK operation is supported by additional technical facilities spanning 12 countries. Tooling can be manufactured within our Group and proven in-house. We have 25 moulding machines up to 3200 tonnes, including large tonnage Mucell (for ‘lightweighting’) and 2k machines.
We have 25 modern Injection Moulding Machines between 220 to 3200 tonnes locking force. These include a number of 2k (twin-shot) machines.
Machines can be supported by automated or semi-automated assembly systems designed and implemented by our development team.
Other specialities include:
We have traditionally supplied the Automotive sector and any other sectors requiring a high level of development and process expertise.
Our core background is in tool design and manufacture (within our Group), with a number of facilities in Europe and Asia. Modifications and part approval (PPAP etc.) can take place at our UK site. Specialities include multi-gate tooling, e.g., for thin-walled products.
We also offer 3-D printing (sintering) of large and complex tooling for the purposes of cooling optimisation.
Post mould decorative finishes including painting and chroming are available. Painting can be for interior or exterior applications where several coats are required. Some technical coatings can be a viable alternative to chroming
Once injection mould tools have been manufactured at one of our own facilities, design changes, tooling modifications and full part approval (PPAP etc.) can take place at our UK site.
