Production Tools

The commitment to place an order for a production mould tool realises a significant investment and it is imperative that you have confidence in the supplier you choose to work with, be it a one off tool or a suite of tools. At Phoenix Engineering we pride ourselves on being able to manufacture this form of tooling to exacting standards, with a high level of traceability and with quality controls throughout the process.

Production tools would usually be manufactured with fully hardened tooling plate being used for core and cavity details as well as side movements and crucial shut out areas. The majority of production tools produced serve the Caps and Closure & Medical markets being multi-cavity Hot Runner tools with complex forms however cold runner tools including single cavity and family tools are also manufactured to support our customers’ requirements.

The mould tools we produce can be supported at every stage be it preventative servicing, a repair or modification to up-issue a product therefore extending the life of the tool. Predominately the production tools we manufacture are run in our customers mould shops and are supported at Phoenix but we do now have the capability through our sister company Pentagon Plastics Ltd to store mould tools and produce repeat production on press sizes up to 280 tonne when required.

The manufacture of all tooling provided by Phoenix Engineering is carried out by our highly skilled in-house toolmakers.
