are thinking of sending us an enquiry here are a
few of the more frequently asked questions
(FAQ's) regarding our PU foam moulding
you read CAD data?
can read most formats of CAD data but IGES is
our always preference.
don’t have CAD data what can else I send
quote from a drawing, sketches, photos or even
samples, if you send us photos or sketches
please remember to include some overall
else do you need to provide a quotation?
also need to know the volumes, e.g... how many
parts you would need per week/month/year, this
helps us to provide you with accurate
prices. If you know the hardness and
density of the parts you require this will also
help. Don’t worry if you don’t have all
this information, we are here to help you so
just email us or call us and we can advise you.
I need to purchase tooling?
all our parts are custom moulded and will
require mould tooling, if you already have mould
tooling we may be able to use this so please
email us with the details. We will provide
you with our prices for tooling based on the
volume of parts you need to purchase, this will
range from resin tooling through to production
aluminium tooling depending on the volume of
long will it take for me to get my parts?
depends on the complexity of the parts and the
data we work from. For example if we work
from CAD data then typically;
prototype PU mouldings - 7/10 days
Low volume or more complex prototype PU
Mouldings - typically 3/4 weeks
Production PU Mouldings - typically 4/5 weeks
are only guidelines, our quotation will state a
more accurate delivery.
colours do you mould?
skin PU mouldings can be any colour, we can
colour match an existing sample or you can
provide us with a RAL number. Our flexible
and rigid foam is generally only natural colour
but we can can change this if required.
much will my foam parts cost?
will depend on the complexity of the parts, the
number of parts you want to purchase and the
overall size of the parts. Generally the
more parts you purchase the cheaper they are, we
can provide you with costings for different
batch sizes if required.
you mould inserts into the parts?
mould most types of inserts into parts
including... stems, wires, velcro, metal plates,
foam blocks etc.. into our foam mouldings.
you mould fire retardant foam parts?
there are a number of options for fire retardant
foam parts, contact us for further information.
you mould prototype parts?
offer a unique rapid tooling system that allows
us to go from CAD to moulded part in days, the
tooling can be easily modified so is ideal for
am not sure of the hardness/density
worry, we generally mould a set of first off
parts in a range of hardness/density this helps
you decide on a final hardness for your parts.
