Aluminium mould

Investing in Aluminium tooling is an excellent solution for manufacturing higher volume production components. If used correctly, aluminium tooling will easily manufacture hundreds of parts with no degradation or maintenance required.

Material

The surface finish of an aluminium mould is exceptional and will maintain its gloss for longer than our other materials. The mould is also easier to re-polish and recondition should the surface gloss degrade. Aluminium is generally our most premium priced option but offers extended durability for lager volume production runs.

Application

Aluminium moulds are suitable for all composite manufacture processes.

  • Pre-preg
  • RTM
  • Resin infusion
  • Wet lay
  • Hot press
  • Jigs and fixtures

Manufacture

Aluminium moulds are made by creating removing material from a block using a CNC mill.

  1. Mouldbox takes component CAD model and tools are designed.
  2. The aluminium is machined from a billet to the correct geometry on a 5-axis CNC mill.
  3. Moulds are hand-finished to remove machining marks and create a smooth surface finish.
  4. Inspected for quality and shipped.
