Each and every tool is a bespoke production to meet the exacting requirements of customer needs – and that makes the design stage crucial to understanding and agreeing the critical project goals.
With more than 50 years’ experience in the toolmaking industry, our team are completely focussed on fully understanding our customer’s requirements, ensuring we produce tools which produce the required part, at the best production cost.
Using the latest SolidWorks and Cimatron, 3D CAD design software we gather information for all elements of the tool design process, from generating 3D solid models to producing drawings for parts and assembly, BOM lists for materials ordering and CAM information for CNC manufacture. Our CAD software accepts and interprets all commonly used industry standard CAD data allowing us to work directly with you models.
Our designers produce initial tooling designs which are reviewed, adjusted and enhanced before a final design is agreed, approved and converted into a complete working design with all information detailed and ready for materials ordering and efficient part manufacture.
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
We’ve used Paragon Toolmaking for many years as we know they’ll provide the exact tooling we need, of the highest standard and longevity, and they are always there to offer help and support. Keith – Process Engineer- White Goods – Rotherham
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
...Paragon always go the extra mile and ensure that everything is working perfect every time... James Welbeck - Food company
