Profile

S.P.E. pride ourselves on the quality Design, Manufacture and Maintenance of all our Production Tooling in several aspects of the Industry:

  • Plastic Injection Mould Tools
  • Formula 1
  • Public Sector

To mention but a few…

We are responsible and are very proud & particular of all aspects of our work, however big or small. Attention to detail and competitive pricing are vital in our opinion. Quality Control is also extremely important to us.

With the addition of a dedicated Inspection Room, equipped with top performing CNC CMM Machinery equipped with PCDMIS Software, we are able to ensure all parts are thoroughly and reliably checked.

Strict customer non-disclosure & confidentiality are undertaken with the highest regard. We endeavour to continue improving our Production Capabilities with further investment planned to maintain our competitive edge in the demands of today’s industry.

Services

Tooling

  • Plastic Injection Mould Tooling
  • Manumolds
  • Aluminium – low volume / prototype
  • Rubber Compression Tooling – Low & High Volume
  • Auto-sport Composite Mould Tooling
  • 2 Shot Tooling

We offer fast production of Steel Mould Tools & Aluminium Mould Tools, to meet with our customer’s delivery requirements. Fully Hardened steel Mould Tools are normally very durable and are capable of producing millions of components. Aluminium mould tools are capable of tens, up to hundreds of thousands of parts. They are usually lower in price and can take less time to manufacture.

Mould Tool Design
We offer a full Design Service

Design

  • 3D Solid Modelling
  • Advanced Offline Programming
  • File Formats: Step, Parasolid, Iges, ProE, dxf & dwg.
  • In house 3D Tool and Component ign/modelling using VISI Software
  • Offline programming using Vero International (VISI 15 Software)des

Most CAD formats accepted.

Manufacturing
Here at S.P.E. we are constantly reviewing all aspects of new technologies that can make us more competitive in today’s Engineering marketplace in terms of Quality, Costs and lead-times.  S.P.E. cater for all aspects of Machining, here are some examples of work undertaken:

  • Jigs & Fixtures
  • Loose Tools
  • 1 off Components
  • Small Batch Work

We pride ourselves with offering a Full Range of Polishing for our Manufactured Parts, from Coarse through to Fine and finally up to Mirror / Optical Finish.

Spark Erosion
S.P.E. offer a full Sub-Contract Spark Erosion Service for some of the following sectors, Mould Tools, Oil & Gas, Safety, Aerospace and Defence. This process is mainly used to achieve un-machineable shapes and apply Ra (VDI) surface finish to Mould Tool Cavities/Cores. Working with many Exotic Materials such as:

  • Inconnel
  • 174 PH
  • Stainless Steel

Inspection
S.P.E. have a dedicated Inspection Room, which has the latest equipment, ensuring of thoroughly checked-machined parts to the highest standard. We have competent, experienced members in our team who have trained at Hexagon Metrology and gained certificates as proof of their PCDMIS software knowledge and ability with our CNC measuring machine.

With this PCDMIS Software, we can provide a full inspection direct from customer supplied 3D cad files.

The capability of offline programming CMM machines, in conjunction with CNC manufacture, using our PCDMIS software, enables the investigation of CAD data, resulting in data files that can be converted to produce an accurate measurement programme.This enables inspection programming to be carried out along side manufacture, constantly achieving consistency and reduced lead times.

Our Shop-floor Discovery II CMM with the latest in PCDMIS Software is the key to our success.

Equipment

S.P.E. have endeavoured to achieve a plant list that we feel not only enables us to manufacture top class mould tools, but also allows us to offer a very successful Sub-contract service.
