Toolmaking FAQ’s

We answer your common questions surrounding mould tooling.

What is a mould tool?

An injection mould tool, often referred to as a mould, is a specialised tool used in the injection moulding process. It is designed to shape and form molten plastic into a specific configuration through two main parts: the core and the cavity. These parts come together to form the desired shape of the plastic product. Once the mould tool is designed, it is used in conjunction with a moulding machine to produce plastic parts in large quantities.

What material is used for toolmaking?

The materials used for making these molds are typically metals that can withstand the high temperatures and pressures involved in the injection moulding process. The two most common materials for toolmaking in plastic injection moulding are P20, H13 steels and aluminium.

What is the difference between tooling and mould?

Tooling covers all tools in manufacturing, while a mould specifically refers to shaping the plastic in injection moulding. Making moulds is just one aspect of the broader tooling process in plastic manufacturing.

How are injection tools made?

The process starts with designing the mould based on the desired plastic part. A suitable material is chosen and shaped using CNC technology. Heat treatment may be added for durability. The assembled mould, with cavity and core components, is then polished for a smooth finish.

Can you look after my tool?

We will maintain new and existing moulds to help preserve their life and quality. We can also carry out any repairs or modifications where necessary.
