Metal Mold Manufacturing

Investing in Metallic tooling is an excellent solution for manufacturing higher volume components.

If used correctly, metallic tooling will easily manufacture hundreds of parts with no degradation or maintenance required.

The surface finish of a metallic mold is exceptional and will maintain its gloss for longer than our other materials. The mold is also easier to re-polish and recondition should the surface gloss degrade. Metals like Aluminium and Invar are our most premium priced options but offers extended durability for larger volume production runs.

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.

For more information please read our Security Policy.

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.
