Our highly-skilled team have a wealth of knowledge and experience as press toolmakers, gathering all machined parts for assembly and seeing through the entire process.
Working to fully detailed and dimensioned drawings our toolmakers complete the tool build ready for first press trial, through component inspection, tool completion, signoff and on site support.
Using our in-house try-out presses, we can build and trial tools up to 400 tonne with a maximum die set size of 2.75m x 1.5m. We also utilise a Stanko 160 ton press with a bed size of 1.25 x 1.7m.
Our team ensures the tools we manufacture produce parts which meet exacting level of tolerances and performance.
Each part is taken to our inspection department where it is checked and verified to the component drawing, with any further required adjustments then made to the producing tool.
With more than 50 years’ experience to call upon, we’re proud to have fine-tuned our tool-making process.
Every successful project starts with a clear brief. Once it's fully understood by our toolmaking experts, we analyse the form and function. From this we develop the initial tooling concept ready to allow us to address every critical feature.
Design & Modelling
After agreeing any adjustments or modifications, we begin to create the final approved working 3D design – detailing every feature required to efficiently and confidently enter the manufacturing process.
Assembly & Production
Using the latest 3D manufacturing techniques we produce the high accuracy components required. Following accurate assembly the tools tested to ensure the required specification is achieved.
Got a rough pencil sketch, CAD drawing or CAD model of the product you require? We can evaluate its form, fit and function and help you decide on how to make it!
We can work from your designs
Dont just take our word for it

Our customer has laid down three sets of tooling, one in Taiwan, one in the UK and one with Paragon Toolmaking. The parts off the Paragon tool are the best by far. Chris, - General Manager – Computer Casing Components – Tewkesbury
The die ran extremely well at 50 parts per minute with good quality. We have now commissioned the tool ready for production. The toolmakers deserve a pat on the back. Paul, New Tooling Engineer – Automotive - Sunderland
