Injection Mould Tooling



revolutionising the tooling sector with state-of-the-art metal additive manufacturing

We specialise in manufacturing 3D printed injection moulding inserts (cores and cavities), incorporating advanced thermal management to slash moulding times, reduce energy use and carbon emissions. Our materials are selected for performance and carefully tailored with customised hardness and machinability levels.

Our capabilities extend to specialised tooling, such as moulds for glass bottle blow moulding applications as well as custom jigs and fixtures, making us a one-stop solution for diverse tooling needs.

Cool Moulds, Hot Results.

We are poised to transform the injection moulding sector in the UK and globally. Utilising our end-to-end capabilities, we designed and produced a conformally cooled mould cavity and core that reduced the time to ejection by 50% for an Apex-branded coaster.

By integrating our simulation-driven design approach and our mastery of Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) technology, we produced this advanced tooling at a highly competitive cost. The complete cycle—from design, metal 3D printing, and machining to final production—was accomplished in just 12 days. Our multi-disciplinary expertise underscores our commitment to delivering rapid, cost-effective, and cutting-edge solutions.

  • Steels: M300 Maraging Steel

    Maraging steels belong to a category of iron-based alloys characterized by a martensitic crystal structure. They derive their unique strength and hardness from the precipitation of intermetallic compounds during ageing, typically at around 500°C (900°F), rather than from carbon content. Nickel serves as the principal alloying element, supplemented by cobalt, molybdenum, and titanium. The alloy known as Maraging steel M300 is alternatively identified as 1.2709.

  • Aluminum Alloys: AlSi10Mg

    AlSi10Mg is composed of aluminium, enriched with up to 10% silicon, along with traces of magnesium, iron, and other minor elements. Silicon contributes to the alloy’s enhanced hardness and strength through the formation of Mg2Si precipitates. An inherent oxide layer on the alloy’s surface provides substantial corrosion resistance, which can be further heightened through chemical anodizing. It is commonly used for heat exchangers and thermal management applications.
