We are NZs largest supplier of tooling board.
Primarily used in the CNC machining environment for Subtractive Rapid Prototyping, tooling boards are playing a vital part in the marine, aerospace, prototyping and foundry industries.
We source products from Europe and the USA, stocking sheets in 50, 75 & 100mm thicknesses.We now offer an inhouse 3D print service.
Characteristics and Applications.
Tooling boards are consistent with no voids, uniform density and predictable processing characteristics. Small cell-sizes give excellent finished surface results straight from the tool.
With the demands of tighter tolerances and reliable dimensional stability, tooling boards out-perform traditional materials.
Faster CNC machine spindle speeds and material feed-rates are possible. Tooling boards are closed-cell making them virtually insensitive to humidity changes, with predictable thermal expansion characteristics.
Most polyurethane boards are temperature resistant to 60°C. Our Epoxy boards can be used for pre-preg carbon fibre production that can be processed repeatedly at 125°C, with very low thermal expansion, and good resistance to chemicals.
