Injection Mould Tools Services


A legacy of toolmaking

Injection mould tool making is where Ledwell Plastics began, over 50 years ago. Today we use Mastercam and Autodesk Fusion 360, the world’s most well-known CAD CAM system, to produce tools of the highest quality, precision and longevity. The mould tool is absolutely key in making the finished component to the correct quality and accuracy. Incorrectly made tooling can cause many issues. Over the past fifty years we have developed the expertise and gained the experience to avoid the potential problems. Using Ledwells’ services you can be confident your design, product manufacture and route to market will be quicker and more efficient.

How we design and manufacture

Our highly skilled design team uses the Solidworks CAD system to create each tooling design. Solidworks is incredibly powerful and renowned around the world for its flexibility and ability for detail. It’s also capable of designing the designs for the parts themselves, which then feeds into the final tool designs.

Process & Project Management

Our team will work with you through the following stages of our process to ensure we deliver top-quality service and top-quality products.

Plastic Pellets
The process begins with feeding plastic pellets into the hopper. These pellets are then transported forward by a screw inside the barrel over a one-way valve called the screw tip assembly.
Heater bands surrounding the barrel warm the plastic pellets. As they move forward, they melt, forming a molten plastic mass at the end of the screw in front f the one-way valve screw tip assembly.
Once molten, the plastic is injected into the mould cavity by the screw acting as a plunger.
Within the mould, the plastic solidifies, usually within a minute. Ejection: The mould opens, and ejector pins push the cooled part out before the mould closes to repeat the cycle.
