Mould Tool Design Support

Mould Tool Support

You can expect every aspect of our moulding design and production to be faultless, and tooling is the foundation of that process.

Tooling will have an impact on an entire project, from production efficiency to product quality, which is why we are committed to designing and building the most advanced in the industry.

We offer prototype tooling to ensure that not only the product is tested and approved, but importantly also to ensure the tool design, split lines, feed position provide a robust mould.  Thereby offering repeatability and longevity once in production.

We specialise in rapid prototyping and work with respected British and European toolmakers to provide the most efficient solution to your needs.

Above all, we believe that your reputation is our reputation which is why we continually strive for zero ppm rates across the hundreds of millions of components we mould each year.

Tooling for Rubber

Our compression and transfer moulding capabilities allow us to produce short run prototypes.

Low-cost tooling and quick turnaround times give you the flexibility to test out new product ideas. We can also use bolster sets with interchangeable cavity inserts to keep costs down.

Our rubber tooling is designed to complement our vertical and horizontal moulding machines using multi-cavity cold runner technology, automatic demoulding and fully automated flash removal to reduce part costs.

Tool Designs for Material Efficiency

During rubber moulding the products can be fed by a multitude of methods. For high volume components, especially where costs of material are high, utilising intelligent machines allied to 'cold runner systems’ ensures that any waste material is minimised. Burnetts utilise this technology to reduce our impact on the environment.

Likewise, on plastic tooling we have implemented 'hot runner systems' to remove the runner sprue from many products ensuring that there is no waste for each shot of product produced.

We continue to push the boundaries of tooling design to allow for less material and faster cycle times to reduce energy usage.

Tooling for Plastic

These high precision, multi-cavity tools are designed to deliver a capable and efficient moulding process that produces perfect parts.

Where required, tooling is designed around an automated process so that robotics can be used for loading inserts, sprue cutting, trimming, and automated demoulding.

Careful consideration is given to steel selection to ensure material wear characteristics are accommodated and when required specialist surface treatment is utilised to ensure durability.

We also incorporate camera inspection technology to specific processes to ensure zero defects.
