Large Cast Aluminium Rotational Mould Tool

This large cast aluminium tool shows how manufacturing joints can be used to make a tool economical to produce. The finished tool measures 3m x 2m x 2m and would have been very expensive to cast in two pieces and challenging to maintain joint line fit and overall accuracy.

By designing the tool to use 6 smaller castings we could dramatically reduce the cost of the tooling by reducing the cost of the castings. Accurate machining, straightening and fitting of those castings ensured the final tool exhibited all the accuracy our smaller tools do.

Engraved logos, looses pieces and a coarse shot peened finish were included
