Bespoke mould tooling solutions for cost effective results
Our on-site UK-based and Asian toolroom facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art machinery that provides bespoke mould tooling solutions. We work closely with our customers during each stage of the tooling process, from component design, Design for Manufacture (DFM), Mould Flow Analysis (MFA) to the construction of bespoke tooling solutions.
WSM Plastics can also provide routine maintenance of existing tools upon request.
Tooling manufacture & solutions
Upon receipt of your order, our teams will work with your component design to carry out full Design for Manufacture (DFM) and Mould Flow Analysis (MFA) assessments. Our modern design software is integrated with multihued CNC machine centres using the latest Solid Works, AutoCAD and CadCam software. Following this, a General Assembly (GA) design and review of the tool will take place with the WSM Plastics technical team and you the customer. Our tool manufacture is carried out in line with the agreed GA, ensuring all elements of the tooling are correct to the specified dimensions and tolerances.
Once complete, tooling will then be moved to our production mould shop to run the first off trials and process validation. Here, the mechanical functions of the tooling will be checked. We will then carry out a full process evaluation on the component and material. During tool sign off WSM Plastics and our customers will check the components for dimensional accuracy and functionality by our quality team liaising with our customer at all times.
