This client is currently seeking a supplier who can manufacture tooling to be used in a press brake to form 1.6mm sheet mild steel into terminal guards. The drawing attached shows the finished component that the tooling will form. Please note that the parts within the red circles are the sections required to be formed - the punching shown in the drawing will already have been completed at this point. This tooling will be used to make 1000 to 2000 presses at a time, with quality and tolerance being extremely important. The forming is to be completed with one single operation; tooling with secondary operations will not be considered. An order is ready to place, with an opportunity to manufacture further tooling for the client going forward.

The attached top combs will be used within press tools, on behalf of a company that spends £10,000 a year on subcontract tool making and a further £250,000 on bespoke machined parts. They have an immediate order to place for these designs, which are legacy parts with no current supplier in place. 2 off of each design is required at this time and the client has advised that the work may be best suited to those with large CNC milling facilities.

Due to an increase in production, this ceramic manufacturer requires additional tooling to keep up with demand. They currently seek quotes on the attached punch and ejector for their compaction press tooling. Multiples of two are needed as the buyer runs double impression tools, meaning that the heights of each pair of punches and ejectors has to be exactly the same. Having previously handled the manufacture of their tooling in-house, they would now like to partner with an external supplier for the production of these items, as well as additional sizes.

With a £75,000 annual spend on toolmaking and a further £250,000 on general subcontract machining processes, this metal spinning company currently seeks quotes on a press tool for immediate manufacture. This will be used to produce inconel components for the aerospace industry and must meet the client's specifications as stated. Delivery of the press tool will be needed by mid-June, facilitating an excellent opportunity to fill immediate capacity.
