Sprint Tool and Die, designers and manufacturers of plastic injection moulds and die cast tools, are no strangers to winning awards, having been twice chosen as Toolmaker of the Year.
The award was specifically to reflect the outstanding relationship and partnership between the toolmaker and the moulder, from design through to full production tooling.
This year is no exception and Sprint are hopeful to have been shortlisted as “Finalists” in the “Toolmaker of the Year” category at the forthcoming Plastics Industry Awards event.
Their entry demonstrates a long-term commitment to working alongside the customer, to ascertain the most suitable material for the specialist application, to produce a mould tool to run efficiently and with impressive cycle times.
The project, a medical application requiring the utmost accuracy in a demanding material, is now being moulded within the European community, following extensive trials within the UK. Sprint’s service extends internationally, as well as nationally.
Sprint Tool and Die have been manufacturing high quality tools in Telford since 1989. All the workforce have undergone a traditional apprentice and the latest two recruits are continuing with their studies, whilst gaining hands-on experience on the shop floor. Their youngest apprentice was awarded “Apprentice of the Year” from the college providing his training, to reflect his attitude and commitment to learning.
The experienced workforce manufacture insert moulded items, multi cavity and unscrewing tools for a variety of applications – from caps and closures to medical to consumable/disposable packaging solutions. Repairs and modifications are also carried out expertly and expeditiously, so as to reduce downtime and loss of production.
Design is carried out in-house, which ensures close collaboration between the toolmakers and draughtsmen to ensure the best and most efficient design for each individual project.
Sprint Tool and Die was originally set up by Ian Amos to provide good quality tooling, on time, and within budget, a strategy which has not changed to this day.
The company embraces modern technology on the shop floor. Latest investment of £100K was in an additional CNC high speed milling machine from DMC, which has proved of great assistance in expanding our machining capabilities and meeting demanding delivery schedules.
Sprint Tool and Die are exhibiting at Interplas, within the PlastikCity Pavilion, and can be found at Stand A40D to discuss your next project or repair.
Ian Amos, Managing Director, will be available throughout the course of the exhibition or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
