The Protool Plastics Group specialise in low volume injection moulding production projects.
Aluminium tooling can be used for the life of the product or as a bridge into high volume tooling.
Highly complex designs can be produced using hand loaded inserts for side holes, internal undercuts, threads etc..
Tooling grade Aluminium can deliver SPI-A1 gloss polishes as well as EDM (spark erosion) & acid etch grains.
Tool life depending upon polymer selection and component complexity. Please use the following as a guide line: – PP, PE, TPE up to 30,000 shots – ABS, PC, PMMA, PS up to 20,000 shots – PA6, PA66, POM, PET up to 15,000 shots – PA6GF, PA66GF, PPGF up to 10,000 shots – PBT, PEEK & other heavily filled materials up to 3,000 shots.
Full ISIR and tuning possible with excellent shot to shot repeatability, typically achieving 1.33 CpK on critical dimensions.
Automotive PPAP documentation service available.
Suitable for all markets we currently manufacture LVP parts for some of the Worlds best known brands.
Low Volume Production Tooling
Rapid cut aluminium tools delivering moulded parts between 12 and 25 working days.
Product design Failure Mode Analysis (FMA) ensuring all parts are designed for maximum tool life.
All tools made in the UK with our group company Protool Manufacturing.
