Faulkner Moulds, three times UK ‘Toolmaker of the Year’, will give visitors a warm welcome at this year’s Interplas and Meet the Toolmaker exhibitions. Lead team members will be on hand with various materials to showcase the company’s excellence in toolmaking.
Faulkner Moulds can be found on Stand J22 in the GTMA Pavilion at Interplas, which runs from 28-30 September at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. Faulkner Moulds will also be exhibiting at the GTMA’s Meet the Toolmaker event on Thursday, 21 October, at the MTC in Coventry.
Serving medical, electronics, consumer, industrial, automotive and packaging sectors, the Yorkshire-based company provides a bespoke end-to-end service, continually investing in training and state-of-the-art toolmaking technologies and techniques. This year the company purchased a new CNC sparker that runs to a guaranteed constant three microns accuracy.
With the ability to design and manufacture sophisticated tooling solutions, including twin-shot, unscrewing mechanisms, collapsible cores, over-moulds, multi-cavity, high production and rapid cycle times, Faulkner Moulds prides itself on a strong track record of accuracy, efficiency and superb customer service.
Throughout the pandemic, the Yorkshire-based toolmaker prioritised fulfilling medical sector demands whilst still meeting the needs of their non-medical customers. For example, award-winning twin-shot tools for an oral anti-snoring device, suite of multi-cavity convex ring tools, intravenous kidney filtering device, blood filtering inlets and outlets, an Ebola detection device, unscrewing tools and an NHS face shield headband.
Having won UK ‘Toolmaker of the Year’ at the Plastics Industry Awards three times in recent years, Faulkner Moulds is taking a break from entering the awards this year. This is due to the high level of confidentiality, along with some of the complexities in the supply chains that were involved in the most significant medical toolmaking projects the company has carried out during 2020.
With the convenience of a UK location and excellent value, driven through efficiencies, Faulkner Moulds’ toolmaking is a robust choice.
