Introduction to Composite Mould Tool Production

Tuesday, 24 - Wednesday, 25 Mar 2020

A quality Tool Mould is a crucial element to your manufacturing process.  With the costs involved in commercial production though, many choose to make their own.

This is a highly practical course, which will show you cost-effective ways of producing your own moulding from scratch.  You'll gain the knowledge you need to produce quality parts and learn how to avoid common errors.

Whether you're working from original parts or creating a mould tool from nothing, we recommend this course as part of your essential introduction to composites manufacturing.

What we'll cover

  • Health and Safety around repair activity
  • The purpose of the mould tool
  • Plug, patterns and mould tools
  • Materials used in mould tool production
