Moulds and tool makers

The manufacture of moulds and tools requires know-how and rigour.

Aside from the technical complexity and manufacturing constraints, the moulding and tool making sector is a world apart. These professionals must meet major production demands as well as small series or complex part machining demands. The design and development of metal moulds, plastic injection and tools, the maintenance and adaptation of tools from their daily routine.

Complete mastery of the manufacturing chain is the key to designing the part based on specific specifications and within deadlines.

With Type3, you will find various solutions which suit numerous design-manufacturing scenarios.

TYPE EDIT or LASERTYPE: a CAD solution (2D or 3D) for quickly creating your 2D designs (textss, vectorisation logos, series creation, 2D or 3D decoration, etc) which you can use in addition to other "mechanical" CADCAM solutions

TYPE EDIT or LASERTYPE: a CADCAM solution (various packages available, 2D, 2.5D or 3D engraving) which you can use in addition to your other mechanical CADCAM solutions or not. For your small artistic moulds for example. Or when you need to carry out precise engraving of a logo, text or decoration with a dedicated "engraving" CAM.

3SHAPER or 3DESIGN for the "full-3D" CAD and the design of your artistic models or "graphic objects" in addition to other solutions (import-export STEP, IGES, STL gateways) or because you use a 3D printer.

Your mould engraving (texts, logos, textures, bas reliefs, etc) or mould creation or artistic stamp needs:
