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.
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.Contact Us
With over 50 years of experience in injection moulding, we’ve refined the process to produce cost-effective, quality parts at scale. Here’s how we do it.
At the start of any project, we’ll schedule an initial consultation to listen and understand exactly what you’re looking for.
Drawing on decades of expertise, we’ll think carefully about the design for your tooling and offer the best and most cost-effective solution for manufacturing and materials.
We’ll explain this face-to-face so you know exactly what you’re paying for. Each quotation includes itemised tooling and part prices, plus a guaranteed timeline before you’re liable for repairs.
When you’ve had time to think about the quotation we’ll get back in touch to answer any questions.
If you confirm you’d like to go ahead, we’ll offer bespoke design and material advice as we head towards the tooling stages. We’re grateful for every customer that puts their trust in us.
As your tooling goes into production, we’ll keep you informed at every step so that you know exactly what’s happening.
All tools are sampled in-house in the correct materials for production. We’ll make sure that each component is reviewed before sending it to you for approval.
It’s common for a new design to need some small adjustments. We’ll work closely with you to make sure it’s all as you need and expect.
As soon as you’ve placed your order, we’ll confirm the delivery date. We pride ourselves on quality and delivery, treating every customer with equal importance.
We’ll let you know when to expect your products, sent using trusted courier services or our own transport. Building a strong partnership with you for the future is what we love to do.
