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.
