Langstone Engineering - Tooling
What Is Tooling Process?
Tooling is the process of designing and engineering the tools that are necessary to manufacture / mould parts or components. There are many different types of tooling, of which the most common are: work holding tools, such as jigs and fixtures; Multi cavity injection mould tools for say rubber or carbon fibre layup, dies for cold forming and welding and inspection fixtures.
Why Is Tooling Important?
The quality of a finished part, its properties, the speed and accuracy with which it can be produced and the repeatability of manufacture in high volume production runs, all depend on the precision and characteristics of the tooling. So for the best parts, tooling needs to be designed and engineered to the highest quality.
What Should Tooling Usually Cost?
The cost of tooling will change from project to project because it depends on so many variables. However, there is a common misconception that tooling is an expensive and sometimes cost-prohibitive process. In fact, thanks to modern engineering techniques the tooling costs for CNC machining are relatively low in most cases.
