Toolmaking

The quality of an injection moulded component depends on both good component design and the accuracy of the mould tool.

Andel Plastics has gained a strong reputation for manufacturing precision engineered tooling to the highest quality and accuracy. Delivering engineering excellence through investment in our people and equipment.

Capabilities range from the simplest open and shut tools, to multi-impression auto-unscrewing tools.  We are so confident in the quality of our tooling that we provide a ten-year no maintenance guarantee for tools we design, manufacture and mould (excluding magnet tooling).

Being in the same production facility, the in-house toolroom gives both Andel Plastics and Maxmag a competitive advantage over other suppliers, reducing leadtimes and downtimes on production and maintenance. However, we do also manufacture tooling for other moulders.

We offer a proactive approach to project management, from component design through to tool manufacture, sampling and volume production.

Due to the aggressive nature of the magnetic material, good tool maintenance is key to the lifespan of the tool and quality of the components. Being able to offer this service in-house enhances the productivity of a magnet mould tool.
