RP Technologies design and manufacture precision prototype aluminium injection mold tooling and have an enviable reputation for quality and complexity.
RP’s sophisticated CAD/CAM and direct machining capabilities allow for fast turnaround including complex shapes or contours which are common in today’s market. Our Sodick AD55L CNC Spark Erosion machine allows us to achieve intricate detail on our rapid tooling. Every soft tool has a dedicated technician and our team of Engineers have full involvement throughout the entire process from tool design to moulded component.
Our Quality Engineers are on hand at all times to fully inspect components to achieve tight tolerances where required using Axel CMM software.
We offer a project life tool guarantee on all of our tooling, for more details please contact us on 0121 550 5868.
Once the prototype tool is complete and ready for press we offer a rapid plastic injection molding service. This service supports customer’s requirements for functional prototypes in production intent polymers and is perfect for components that need to be put through rigorous testing and development.
The quality of our tooling benefits our customers as the high standard means the tools will support production of many thousands components meaning customers aren’t limited to a small number of components. We can support low to medium volume production runs from our tooling so it doesn't just have to be for prototyping.
We also offer low, medium and high volume series production moldings from existing tooling. This service opens the door for new and existing customers to re-shore tools from overseas or to relocate tooling from suppliers that are underachieving.
Our pricing for production plastic mouldings is extremely competitive, but what makes RP stand out from the crowd is our high standard of quality and customer service. We have a ‘partner’ not a supplier ethos and build fantastic working relationships with our customers.
We have an impressive suite of injection moulding machinery ranging from 60 tonne to 600 tonne offering components with a shot weight capacity up to 2.3kg.
Our vast experience in the prototype industry across a broad spectrum of industries has given us valuable knowledge on processing a wide range of materials including PEEK, ABS, PC, PC/ABS, PET-G, ASA, SAN, PA6, PA66, PPA, PA12, TPE, TPU and many more.
Utilising standard measuring equipment alongside a Co-Ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) our Quality Engineering Department can produce accurate measurements of components. Utilising these measurements we can offer Initial Sample Inspection Reports (ISIR), dimension reports and PPAP reporting up to level 3.
We approached RP Technologies with a very urgent requirement for a product we had previously got 3D printed but had a sudden increase in demand. Paul was very responsive and helpful on the technical elements, he produced a mould for us in 1 week and then sent his own driver 2-3 hours to us with the samples to get them approved. The sample was right first time and we received the first delivery of finished parts on site 7 working days from placing the order, including making the mould! Excellent customer service and very responsive, I would fully recommend them.

RPTech, through incredible professional service, quality and value over the past few years have become our first choice for rapid injection tooling and parts. They specialise in rapid injection tooling without the distraction of other forms of prototyping which makes them expert at what they do. There is nothing they can’t do with a mould tool, they also offer inspection and PPAP. Competitive on cost and lead time with China or anyone
DB, Automotive Industry
Well resourced, flexible and easy to deal with, we have had good dealings with RP and the team there.
Used RP for alot of projects related to automotive parts. They have been excellent suppliers and have worked to tight deadlines/lead times and have at times worked around the clock to ensure parts are delivered on time to the correct quality specifications. They are also good value for money when based against the Chinese competition.
NT, Automotive Tier 1 Supplier
Just to confirm, we have received our recent order. The team and I were very keen to see what you had produced for us. It’s safe to say you have exceeded our expectations, so an enormous thank you from all of us! We look forward to seeing what you will be producing for us in the future.

Good morning Peter. I have been processing your PPAP submission. May I say this is one of the best presented PPAP’s I have received in over 160 in the last 18 months, well done.

We are in agreement at how impressed we were with the quality, efficiency and professionalism of RP's service as a Rapid Prototype supplier
Chassis-Suspension Systems & Tuning, Jaguar Land Rover
In three weeks - three parts that fit together and perform, right first time. It has bolstered my confidence in bringing back otherwise 'China' jobs to the UK
SB, Zeta Specialist Lighting
Having such a great customer experience has only added to the excitement of the project. Thanks again and look forward to continuing this relationship
