production tooling

Alliance produce production quality Tooling in aluminium tooling plate, through to high specification, high volume, fully hardened steel tools.

At Alliance we use the latest CNC machining centres along with CAD tool design data to produce your tooling.

The tool design may be optimised using Mouldflow software prior to manufacture to ensure costly and time consuming alterations are not required downstream. Once optimised both 3D and 2D production data is produced, the 3D data forming the master models from which cavities and cores are directly CNC machined or Electrodes produced for EDM processes.

We Work Smart and where appropriate combine both  our manufacturing centres to ensure deadlines and budgets are achieved. This can mean that tooling components are made in both facilities and brought together for final assembly where the production parts will ultimately be manufactured, saving both time and money.

Our aluminium tools, with lifecycles of tens or even hundreds of thousands of parts, are suitable for prototype and short to medium production runs. Whilst our pre toughened or fully hardened steel tooling will produce millions of parts, the option we recommend for maximum high production performance and value.

Every one of our tools is supplied with sample parts and setting sheets for quick and efficient setup. 

We also offer complete confidentiality in the form of a non disclosure agreement (NDA) to protect your intellectual property throughout the production process.
