In-house Tooling Facility

When it comes to product development and manufacture, time is of the essence. That’s why Investacast has a competitive advantage when it comes to expediting rapid product development.

We are one of only a few UK foundries to offer our customers the services of an on-site tool room facility. This allows us to quickly and efficiently produce the right tools for any project.

Unlike some foundries, there are no hidden costs – once sampled, proven and paid for, the tooling is wholly owned by the customer.

We have been evolving our tool room capabilities and meeting our customers’ expectations since 1970 thanks to constant investment in technology and the people skilled to operate it.

Our designers and toolmakers will work directly with you to advance your concept drawings to the production stage through a combination of cutting edge technology and professional skills.

Tool Design and Production:

  • We design all tools in-house using Solid works CAD CAM software
  • We can produce a range of tools – from the basic to the most complex
  • We operate manual and automatic operation wax machines
  • We design and manufacture tools for all product volumes

What we need from you:

  • CAD model geometry in the following formats: IGES, Solidworks SLDPRT, Parasolid  X_T, Step .STP
  • We are also able to utilise other CAD geometry formats (including some native CAD files)
