Design – the secret to tooling success

Whatever your tooling requirement, at TDS Engineering, we believe that quality tools start with design.

We therefore take the time from the start to understand your specific needs and arm ourselves with all the information required to build you the best tool for the job.

Drawing on 30 years of tool-making experience, we then produce an initial tooling design for your review. We will present this to you, adjust as required based on your feedback, and then create a final design in our CAD software.

This design is then programmed into our tool manufacturing and assembly process, which takes place on site, in our fully equipped factory.
