Machining &


The tooling division operates a diverse list of high end engineering and manufacturing equipment. Following our path of continuous improvement regular investment is made in machinery that supports the manufacture, service, repair and modification of production mould tooling. This allows us to offer select customers with a sub-contract machining and welding service when there is spare capacity available.

Some of the parts we produce include punch & dies, jigs, fixtures, gauges, nests, forming tools and press tools. This is enhanced with a state of the art static laser welding service run by a team of fully trained engineers. We have the capability to spot features, rotate cores and index feed for accuracy and consistency of weld.

What machines can be utilised for sub-contract services?

• Grinding
• Cylindrical Grinding
• Surface Grinding
• CNC Milling
• CNC Turning
• Wire Eroding
• Spark Eroding
• Laser Welding

2017 saw a massive business investment in to state of the art laser welding technology.  This technology is widely used internally for various tooling services.  The group is also pleased to be able to offer Laser Welding as a sub-contract service to outside business and customers.  We have a dedicated pool of engineers who are fully competent with the laser welding process.

We provide the same high standard of engineering capability to this work as we do the mould tools we build.  For further details on any of these services, call our team on 01403 264397
