Production tools are manufactured from high-quality aluminium, with integrated temperature control systems.
Big Bear work closely with our customers to design tools which yield the best return on material with the thinnest possible starting gauge, minimising scrap material.
Big Bear only work with highly reputable tooling manufacturers, and such is our confidence in the quality of our tools that we guarantee them for life.
Why do tools need to be temperature controlled?
During the moulding process, the sheet material is heated to the forming high temperature. Unless the tool temperature is controlled, the very hot sheet will make the tool progressively hotter, resulting in poor quality parts with unpredictable tolerances. To ensure good quality, repeatable parts, Big Bear maintains the constant temperature of the tool using temperature controlled tooling.
