Toolmaking

Toolmaking & Production Tooling

Our senior team at Trig Creative have been involved in production toolmaking for almost 20 years. With members of our team formally trained in injection mould tooling design, specification and mass production using the injection moulding process. Since Trig Creative was formed in 2004 we have acted on behalf of our clients in specifying, managing tool designs, sourcing and procuring production tooling, attending mould trials and supplying pre-production mould validation services. This long established toolmaking service is key to our Implement phase of product development, this is possible through our long standing close working relationships with a handful of carefully selected highly skilled specialist tool rooms here in the UK, Europe (Sweden and Portugal) and China (Shenzhen and Guangzhou). This enables Trig to offer product specific, quality, cost effective, tailored toolmaking services which are fully managed by our UK team.

Our tooling experience

Due to the nature of our design business, every project is bespoke and often brings with it its own unique tooling challenges. As such; through our product diversity we have experience in supplying tooling of all sizes up to 10 tonnes, 2k or Twin Shot rotating platen tooling, core back tooling, and two stage over mould tooling. As well as incorporating multi drop hot feed systems, unscrewing and collapsing cores, gas assist and sequential gating.

Already have a product design?

Even if you haven’t used Trig Creative for you design services this time we would still be interested in working with you and providing our tooling services. We would simply need to evaluate your existing design and verify that the data is suitable for tooling. If we do identify any issues, we can either advise how to correct them or make the modifications ourselves before progressing. Your product will still benefit from being managed and tooled by our experienced product design focused team.
