Tooling for tool making

In tool engineering, production tools are manufactured for use in the production of series parts. During the manufacture of parts, production tools are used for reshaping, master forming, compression, metal spinning, casting, lay-up processes, positioning, and cutting. “Plastic tooling materials”, such as board material, Close Contour Casting, Close Contour Pastes, and epoxy and polyurethane liquid materials, can be used in the production of machine tools.
