A toolmaker in Nottinghamshire, Pro Moulds serves the toolmaking needs of clients across the UK. From the outset, Pro Moulds realised there was a major need for an all-under-one-roof toolmaking facility with a skilled team of toolmakers. Our relocation in 2000 to a purpose-built 9000 sq ft facility allowed us to excel in this.
Using the latest industry software combined with modern CNC equipment and an experienced team of toolmakers, we manage your requirements in-house from start to finish. Tooling is a necessary industry in which many have placed their confidence when in need of bespoke equipment.
Incorporated within our systems are quality control and accuracy checks at every stage using CMM.
We’re also able to repair, modify and service existing tools/moulds, take a look at our tool repair page for further information about these services.
Toolmaking is imperative to the world of manufacturing, whether you’re mass-producing an item or just creating one intricate piece for a specific machine. So, the tool (also referred to as the die) is a replica of the product that you’re going to be making. These pieces can be made of all sorts of different materials, whether it’s plastic, steel or iron.
This tool is often created using a number of different techniques but it will usually be designed using our in-house CAD software so that you can see all of the dimensions in a 3D view.
After this, we get to work, whether you use a subtractive manufacturing method for the tool or an additive process, we’ll create your tool ready to use for creating moulds.
In manufacturing, a toolmaker is such an important part of the industry because they’re the ones that are creating and repairing the tools/ die for the manufacturing processes to come. Although you may think that the toolmaker creates hand tool like hammers, a toolmaker actually create a product called a tool or die that is then used to create a mould or the injection moulding process.
This tool needs to be perfect so that each product that you create with the mould is the right shape and size. These tools might be for a tidy product for a computer or a larger product like a plastic drill casing.
