Techmould have many years of experience as toolmakers for the rubber moulding industry

Rubber moulding toolmakers

Our in house toolmakers room enables us to have full control of the toolmaking procedure eliminating the usual delays encountered in sub-contracting.

We manufacture compression, injection and casting tools for a wide variety of applications and industries. Our production toolmaking is done at cost, enabling us to provide the lowest prices possible for tooling work. We also provide prototype tooling and sampling services with lead times down to a few days.

Specialists Rubber Moulding Toolmakers

Techmould has recently updated its in-house rubber moulding toolmaking facility with the addition of a new milling machine supplied by XYZ Machine Tools.

This has greatly improved our capabilities and shortened toolmaking leadtimes enabling us to provide an outstanding service, especially when compared to moulders who outsource tooling.

This is an injection moulding tool manufactured in our own tool making facility for a client in the water purification industry. The product is a polypropylene and cap matched to the customer’s specification.

Lead time for receipt of order for tooling to delivery of parts was completed in eight weeks, inclusive of tool manufacture, sampling and batch production.

Typical tooling for this type of product would be £4,000.00. Our price was sub £1,000.00.

In addition to mould and toolmaking our in hose toolroom provides us with the ability to machine high quality engineering plastics, such as Machining UHMWPE.

In addition to mould and toolmaking we also machine high-quality engineering plastics, such as Machining UHMWPE.

Toolmaking Vs machining

We can machine industrial valve components using high-quality engineering plastics. The benefit of this process is no tooling costs. In addition, it would not be possible to mould or 3D print many of these products. The material used in this case is UHMWPE – Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene.
