90% of what we do is manufacturing of high quality injection moulds that are optimized for high speed production. Our focus is on creating unexpected value for money solutions where the cost is surprisingly low for very high quality toolmaking. This gives our customers the extra edge in competitive bidding situations.
An increasing part of our business is our ultra rapid 1 week pre production tooling system where we guarantee 100 samples in one week
Prototype tools that are machined from aluminium or tool steel with ultra high machinability
Plastic part production and manufacturing of prototypes
Toolmaking is and has always been our core business and the base for what we do.
At The Tool Hub we pride ourselves on delivering high quality injection mould tools with:
Very competitive prices
European tooling engineers
Local service on all markets
Capacity: 750 tools per year stretching from 50 Kg to 15 Tons depending on tool construction.
Capability: Cost efficient tools, Hi speed production tools, Unscrewing tools, Fully rotational 2K solutions.
We offer production tools built to 3 clearly defined and controllable standards:
The Tool Hub 1, suitable for most applications
The Tool Hub 2, for high volume production
The Tool Hub Custom, adapted to our customers tool standards.
Please download our standards here.
More and more frequently our customers need to try out a function using a proper injection moulded part before spending money on an actual tool. One of our solutions for this is using IM prototypes.
Here we use modern 3D printing technology combined with conventional injection moulding to get an outstanding speed result. It all starts with a tool design that allows us to 3D print core and cavity inserts, including cooling and metal inserts for sliders and lifters. An ejection package can be added and to make the ejector pins fit perfectly we leave the hole undersized in the 3D printed insert to later ream it out in a CNC machine.
We recommend this solution for batches up to 100 parts and in suitable materials.
You can read more in our white paper on ultra rapid tooling.
Up to 100 parts in 1 week
Low initial cost
Wide choice of materials
Capacity: 30 tools per year
Capability: Low to medium complexity parts with good draft.
As a mid way solution we offer prototype tools cut from Aluminium (preferably 7075, Alumold or QC-10) or fast machining steel such as the S50C.
This will provide a cost effective solution when only a small production volume is needed.
Depending upon the abrasiveness of the resin used and design it is possible to get 100,000 – 500,000 components from an Aluminum tool.
These tools are then kept at our production facility for production part orders.
Cost effective for part production
No Shipping Costs
Capacity: 100 tools per year stretching from 50 Kg to 15 Tons depending on tool construction.
We have a wide range of injection moulding machines at our disposal.
These are used for tool trials but can also be used for manufacturing of parts at a very reasonable rate.
Low cost production
2K part production up to 320Ton
Capacity: Small production runs to Full scale production
Capability: Wide machine range, 2K with rotating pattern, Robot transfers
