1. Project Management

We like to get involved at every stage of your product’s design. That way, we align the manufacture of your tooling to ensure you get the right product at the right price. Having control from beginning to end of the production process not only keeps pricing and security tight but also reduces delays. Servicing a large portfolio of industries such as Electrical, Marine, Medical, Agriculture, Critical Bearings, Automotive and Pharmaceutical; we have a wealth of experience and knowledge that can be tapped into. With that experience we can de-stress the whole design and manufacturing process to ensure that your project is delivered in a timely and professional manner.

2. Design & Prototyping

We take your bespoke design or concept through CAD, prototyping and tooling to ensure you get the right product at the right price. Prototyping your new product gives you the confidence the product design is to your expectations and verifies the design functionality. Two types of prototypes are available, SLA ‘Stereolithograpghy’ or SLS ‘Selective Laser Sintering’ models, dependant on your needs.

3. Tool Design & Manufacture

We have invested heavily in new machinery to manufacture precision injection mould tools in-group. We manufacture new tooling, modifications to existing tooling and make alterations if required on transfer tooling. We also offer external off-shore toolmaking – each step is project-managed with a weekly timing plan giving evidence of progress via gantt charts and photographic images. As a key service we offer an extensive tool maintenance programme including full history of work conducted during the tool life at S&S.
