After several years of repeat orders of parts it’s easy to forget about the significant investment you made in tooling way back when you placed the first order.
No worries. Shepherd Thermoforming maintains your moulds and dies no matter how long you continue to order. In fact you will probably never know how many times we have re-ruled your trim tool or made other repairs. Tooling wears out with continuous use and must be kept in good condition to keep part quality up to your initial standards.
At Shepherd we store you tooling in a clean organised rack system and if you place part orders regularly we will inspect it after every run. If necessary our in-house tool shop will make repairs before it goes back on the production machine. This way we are not rushing to do the work when your next part order comes in.
Our racks hold over 1000 tool sets that can be pulled and installed onto the production lines in less than 3 hours. If something does fail during a run our in-house engineering staff is on hand to fix it right away.
