Supporting UK Composites

Shape Offers Large Polished Metal Tooling to the Composites Industry

Large metal tool at Shape

Shape Machining says it has large tool machining capacity available to support the composites industry.

Managing Director, Peter McCool, said “After significant recent expansion all our large multi-axis CNC machines are settled-in and machining patterns and metallic tools for our customers. Our largest machines have 4m beds and are used to machine aluminium tools for RTM and composite press moulding.”

Shape operates from a bespoke 10,000 sq ft facility in Witney, Oxfordshire.

McCool added “We recently machined and polished a set of aluminium tools for a customer who required a highly polished surface because the automotive carbon fibre parts they were making had ‘A-class’ visual surface quality requirements.

This is the type of work we can now offer to all industry sectors as we roll out our plan for being the No.1 in the UK for high quality composite pattern and mould machining.”
