Mould Design

MOULD DESIGN AND SIMULATION.

We have many decades of experience within our in-house design department. All moulds are designed utilising Siemens NX 3D CAD software. Our capabilities range from single cavity prototype through to 32 Cavity moulds for high volume applications

FULL 3D MOULDFLOW IN HOUSE.

In order to predict cycle times and final part quality, we utilise our 3D Mouldflow packages which can very accurately predict cooling times, part shrinkage and warpage.

DESIGNED FOR LONG MOULD LIFE.

We have successfully designed and manufactured multiple 16 and 32 Cavity injection moulds for the Medical Device industry which in many cases have been running between 3.5 and 5 seconds for 40 million cycles between major refurbishment.

This can be achieved by the attention to detail at the design stage for ease of maintenance, steel selection and specialist coatings.

QUICK MOULD CHANGE DESIGN.

An example of our innovative approach, we have developed a quick change system for fast cycling medical caps, which allows very short changeover for alternative logos, and even for completely different diameters, without the need ot remove the Valve Gate Hot Runner System.
