injection mould tools - insert only plastic mould tools
Toolcraft have a number of standard-sized plastic mould tool bolsters and we can make your cavity & core tool insert to fit one of these bolsters. Insert-only mould tools are the best choice for you if you need to be in production very fast and at low cost, because :-
- You pay for the mould tool insert only.
- We keep the bolster serviced and in excellent working order.
- When you need your plastic parts, we fit your mould tool insert into our bolster fast to meet your supply needs.
We have standard bolsters to fit our machines ranging from 25 tonnes to 180 tonnes, which take plastic mould tools from 100 mm wide up to 300 mm wide, making products from 1mm2 up to 300mm2.
An Insert only mould tool means that you only pay for and own the tool insert. If you should decide later on to get another company to make the mouldings for you, you'll need to pay us or them to make an outer tool bolster to accept your cavity & core tool insert.
We came to Toolcraft with a very urgent requirement for an injection moulded endcap. Toolcraft quickly supplied an economical quote for one of their insert-only injection mould tools, with a lead time of 5 weeks to get the samples. We placed the order just as they were about to have their annual shutdown for a week, but despite this, we had moulding samples within 3 weeks and the full batch of quality injection moulded parts within 4. What a great service.Gail Edgings, Viasat UK Ltd
