CFRP Composites Mold Manufacturing

Here at Plyable we recommend CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced polymer) if you’re looking for excellent value with larger volume production runs where hand lay-up production methods are used.

The low thermal expansion of a CFRP tool is perfect for applications where highly accurate, repeatable component geometry is required and the lightweight nature of CFRP makes it an excellent material choice for molding larger composite components.

We’re able to deliver molds at very competitive prices due to our manufacturing network that has over 1,500 machines, the largest mold production network in the world. We can quickly scale to meet your needs and provide you with the ability to track your order through every stage in the production process.

Plyable values your privacy and security and we take your intellectual property very seriously. There are 3 major ways that we help protect your data:

  • File Management – All files are automatically anonomized and given unique internal ID’s, which are non-specific to the customer or ultimate project identity. Furthermore only the vendor that actually produces your tooling gets access to it.

  • ISO27K compliant security – The servers and network where data is stored are isolated by a firewall and only authorized staff have access to it. We conduct regular security scans to look for vulnerabilities. Data is encrypted at rest, and in transit. Plyable has a dedicated security operations team.

  • Partner assessment - Each of our Manufacturing Partners goes through an extensive onboarding process before being brought onto the Plyable network ending with them signing a Manufacturing Partner Agreement laying out detailed non-disclosure, confidentiality and general terms for their supply services.

We have suppliers in Australia, Canada, The USA, The UK, New Zealand, Sweden, Spain and The Netherlands. You can find more information on our Locations Page.
