Prototype plastic models can be seen within hours using our Dimension 3D part printer (max size 200x200x 300mm)


    Finished designs are seamlessly progressed through the toolmaking stages using the parametric features of Pro-Engineer tool design and CNC machining software. Our tool-makers can produce single or multi-impression tools for injection moulding, sheet metal pierce and blank tools, secondary operation form tools, assembly jigs and fixtures.
