Fibreworks Composites (FWC) can produce the mould tooling to make your composite program a success.
We manufacture mould tooling for all of our in-house projects so we know what it takes to build a turn-key solution for our customers. We can provide first articles along with low-rate-initial-production (LRIP) and production documents for your team.
Composite tooling begins with a precision machined pattern (or plug) which is fabricated in-house, then prepped for lamination by sanding, polishing, surface sealing, and all necessary surfaces are released.
The plug is laid up with carbon tooling pre-preg and processed to produce a stable tool which matches the thermal expansion and provides excellent part quality.
Direct mould tooling provides a cost-effective way to produce parts in low volumes while achieving high quality.
Several tooling board material options are available and have the quickest turn-around.
Metallic mould tools are also produced in-house. These provide long-lasting results with tighter tolerances and higher quality surface finishes.
Metal mould tools allow for high volume production with minimal maintenance.

Direct Moulds from Tooling Board
Cost-effective way to produce parts for low volume production.
Composite tooling provides dimensional stability by matching the thermal expansion of the carbon composite part and provides excellent quality. Inserts can be used to provide localized durability.
Metal Mould Tools
Metal tooling provides the high durability to allow for high volume production. We offer aluminum, steel, and Invar® options to fit your specific needs.
