Tooling to your exact specification, every single time.


On time, every time. Never stress about overdue deliveries again.


Value for money without compromising quality or lead time.

Our foundry tooling was once hand-made by craftsmen. Now we apply the latest CADCAM technology to produce high quality tooling within ever-shorter lead times.

We offer a bespoke service, with all tools designed and manufactured to your unique specification.

We produce your tooling from a range of materials, from the lowest density model board to hardened tool steel, and for a variety of casting processes, including:

  • Sand casting patterns and coreboxes - we specialise in Disamatic patterns, and shell & Laempe coreboxes
  • Investment casting dies
  • Low pressure dies
  • Gravity dies

Design & Manufacturing Process

  • With multiple CAD systems, we'll accept your 3D data in its neutral or native format.
  • We'll work with you to ensure we design the optimum tooling solution for you. We'll send tooling CAD models to you for your review and approval prior to manufacture.
  • Your tooling will be precision machined on our 3 and 5 axis CNC machines.
