GRP Fibreglass Moulding Process
We can create a fibreglass item from a design brief, technical drawing, or CAD model.
Next we make the master pattern. This can be made from timber or foam and is produced to replicate the finished product. It includes the surface texture and finish.
Timber and foam master patterns are made in our workshop. If they are very detailed we have them machined locally at a CNC machinist’s if required. This ensures that the quality of the fibreglass mould is top quality and incredibly accurate. This may be very important if the item to be produced has to be put in a specific place, such as a motorhome canopy or car bumper / door.
You may already have a master pattern for us to produce a tool from, or even a product from which we can work and produce a tool. In the latter case we can create a "lift". This ensures all details are captured in the final product.
From the master pattern we produce a heavy duty fibreglass mould to enable the manufacture of the finished products.
These are structurally supported to retain the shape and dimensional accuracy. They may be a 1 piece tool or multi-piece tool, depending on the complexity of the finished product. The finish of the tool will also mirror the final product.
With over 30 years experience and a team of highly skilled mould makers and composite engineers, we are able to produce a wide range of patterns, moulds and fibreglass mouldings to meet our customer’s requirements.
We can provide a single source solution from concept through to project completion. If you would like more information specific to your requirements, then please do not hesitate to contact us via email or by telephone on 01695 227277.
