Tool Design & Development

At Premier we believe that good quality injection moulding starts with product and tool design and experienced tooling engineers contributing at the early stages of new projects.

Central to this concept is our fully equipped Toolroom providing our in-house tool making team with the capability of undertaking all aspects of tool development and tool building.

With fully integrated machinery and software we use 3D CAD models fed directly to CNC machinery for rapid prototyping or Tool Building itself. This provides an accurate and efficient process, ensuring the smooth development of a product concept through to tool building.

Tool design using Unigraphics NX12, Solidworks 2016 and Mould Flow Simulation.
CAM package using Delcam's Powermill for improved tool making accuracy and lead times.
Tool manufacturing with machines like CNC Milling Centre, CNC Turning Centre, spark EDM, wire EDM, Hydraulic surface grinders.
Modification & general tool maintenance carried out with minimal interference to production schedules.
