Our state of the art tooling service

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. In addition we offer an extensive tool maintenance programme including full history of work conducted during the tool life at S&S.

Precision injection mould tools

When made in-group, S&S Plastics have invested heavily in new machinery to manufacture precision injection mould tools, these include:

  • 3 axis high speed machining
  • 4/5 axis wire-edm
  • 2 axis CNC machining
  • 2 axis CNC turning

Clients often elect to use in-house tooling services to protect their intellectual property (IP) as we offer complete commercial confidence and security. The most top secret product launch is safe in our hands.

We understand there are different approaches for differing needs. If you’re looking for a mould tool for a ‘one off’ prototype, the approach is completely different to the one we’d use to produce tooling for a high volume precision part which will run year after year.

Working with external off-shore toolmaking suppliers

  • Each step is project-managed.
  • Weekly timing plans/Gantt charts and pictures track the progress of the tool.
  • First off samples are submitted for approval.
  • Full in-house engineering validation on arrival of new tooling or transfer tooling.

It’s all part of our caring and proactive tooling service.

Maintenance of your tooling

Tooling represents a significant investment for any component. That’s why each tool under our tenure is part of our rigorous maintenance programme governed by ISO:9001.

Every production run is inputted into an internal database and builds a full history of your tool, this includes the amount of cycles, production dates, tool repair or modifications. All this information is available to be audited by our customer at any time.

See your team who will progress your design and ensure it meets the excellence in the industry.
