Tooling & Twin Shot

Tooling Services

Project Management

Formula Plastics manage the tooling process, providing a highly experienced and knowledgeable link between the customer’s designers and the toolmaker to ensure that the tool is designed to maximise production efficiency and achieve the customer’s quality and commercial needs.

Our project management service will ensure that the tool is manufactured on time, within budget and will produce moulded components that exactly meets your requirements. We agree the timing plan with you and keep you updated as the project progresses.

By using our depth of skill in tool design we deliver the tools with fast turn around times and at competitive prices.

Our technical staff will provide feedback on the moulding process and product quality to enable optimum final adjustments to the tool – ensuring the project is delivered on time & to the agreed quality standard.

Ongoing support - Production tooling

We take good care of your tool.

We know that your production tool represents a significant investment and its ongoing maintenance and care is essential if the tool is to produce good quality parts for years to come. That’s why at Formula Plastics we’re able to maintain tools during the 24 hour production cycle.

Twin Shot

Formula Plastics has invested in 2 state of the art Twin Shot moulding machines. This machinery enables two different materials to be injected into the moulding tool during the production process. The two materials used in twin shot moulding can be plastics with different characteristics, separate colours or a plastic and a rubber combination – providing a variety of applications

Twin shot technology is used to manufacture technically more demanding products or where high levels of aesthetics are required. These include, for example, two colour facia knobs for the automotive industry and plastic parts requiring a rubber seal or rubber handle.

Twin-shot moulding is an excellent choice for demanding aesthetic applications.
