    Injection Moulding

    Tool Manufacture

    Design & Development

  • Injection MouldingProtomould have over 40 years experience in the

    field of thermoplastic injection moulding. Our range

    of mould machines and associated ancillaries is one

    of the most well specified in the UK. With an average

    machine age of less than 4 years and the majority

    of machines fitted with 5 axis CNC robots we have

    a significant manufacturing advantage over the

    majority of UK moulders.

    We process a wide variety of polymers from volume

    products like polystyrenes through to advanced

    engineering grades such as PEEK and PEI. Robot arm loading

  • Design & DevelopmentProtomould offer full product design and development services.

    We can assist in both initial design work as well as concept refinement.

    Unlike conventional design houses our service is derived from

    manufacturing best practice rather than blue-sky thinking our designs

    satisfy the requirements of our customers intent whilst conforming

    to the practicalities of manufacturability!

    Functional Prototype ServiceOne of the main drawbacks of rapid prototypes is that they rarely reflect

    the actual performance of real products. Unlike SLS/SLA prototypes our

    service uses machined cast plastics (offering about 80% of the properties

    of a moulded component) and in the case of resin and aluminium tooling

    the actual polymer intended for the final product.

    We are able to offer machined prototypes in 7-10 days and injection moulded

    parts from resin tooling in 14-21 days.

  • Tool ManufactureWhether it is low volume or pre-production tooling or even high speed, multi-cavity stack tools,

    Protomould are able to source and specify the most appropriate mould tools for our customers.

    We have strong links to world-class toolmakers in Europe and an extensive supply network for

    toolmaking in the Far East.
