Tools, specialists in design and manufacture of injection
mould tools, was established in 1983 and progressed naturally into
plastic injection moulding two years later. In early 1997 we started
production in our second site in Camberley, Surrey, bringing our total
manufacturing area to 33,000 square feet.
We have a range of latest microprocessor controlled injection
moulding machines from 22 tonnes to 480 tonnes including 2-shot.
The Javelin group is a leader in the design of tooling and moulding
of plastic components for a wide range of industries.
Javelin Plastics is approved to BS EN ISO
9001:2000 with additional
quality processes and procedures that have been approved against
the rigorous standards laid down by our customers.
We provide cost effective quality
mouldings which are delivered on
time from our 70 machines that run 24 hours a day.
>From the highly complex to the
straightforward, components can be
moulded in a variety of thermoplastic materials, including Nylon,
Noryl, LCP, Polyester, Polycarbonate, Polyethylene, Polypropylene,
ABS, Acetal, TPES, PES and PTFE, and where practical the use of
reprocessed materials. We are also able to colour these materials
if required by liquid, powder or masterbatch methods.
At Javelin Tools we design and
manufacture injection mould tools
from your component designs and ideas. We welcome the opportunity
of being involved at the component concept stage to help develop
the design for tooling manufacture and 'mouldability'.
We are also able to finesse our tool
designs with the use of
'Moldflow' software that can visually and statistically predict
cavity fill, weld lines and gassing, to ensure repetitive and accurate
production of injection mouldings. All this can be colour printed
We have the capacity to build every
conceivable type of tool from
prototype to full-blown hot runner multi-cavity tooling capable of
producing sample quantities to millions of parts.
The proximity of the Toolroom to
production and close interdepartmental
liaison, plus a company culture focused on low lead times and maximum
quality of service means that modifications and repairs are effected
quickly. Because we build the tools, we offer you free maintenance of
tooling, for at least 1 million cycles, while the tool remains in

We enjoy a challenge, and we're pleased
to discuss one-off products
that can be fabricated in fibreglass! One of the most interesting
projects we've tackled in recent years was to make the decorative
sundial that is mounted on the front of the Bridport Community Hospital
here in Dorset.
The original specification from the
architect was for a bronze sundial
1. Be horologically accurate.
2. Weather (verdigris) over time.
3. Not weather on specific parts.
4. Have the authentic pitted external appearance typical of bronze c
Initially, our brief was to quote for
preparing a fibreglass mould
from which a bronze sundial could be cast. However, this was
impracticable due to the temperatures involved, also because the total
cost of casting in bronze would have been much higher than the client
had budgeted for. So we decided to offer our client an alternative
method of production and a cost-effective solution, using a combination
of resin and bronze powder. What's more, we devised techniques for
meeting all parts of the specification.
The cost savings from using the resin and
bronze powder approach meant
that the client only had to pay one-fifth of the price of casting in
pure bronze, and the hospital were delighted with the result. In fact
they adopted the sundial as part of their logo. And with the money they
saved by not using a pure bronze casting, they were able to add a
conservatory to the hospital.

profiles. It offers designers, shopfitters, manufacturers, exhibition,
joinery and building contractors the opportunity to incorporate shapes
into designs without the need for time consuming bespoke joinery also
eliminating tooling, jigs and ancillary framework.
Preform Direct offers a low cost and
convenient solution to industry
with extensive stocks held locally throughout our European distribution
The technology to manufacture shaped and
curved plywood in long lengths
has been developed over more than forty years. Several million metres
of material have now been supplied, operating in a multitude of
building environments across the world.
Investment in preforming technology and
high capacity production,
allows a more cost effective product to be delivered to market. But it
is not only sheer volume that facilitates such cost savings. Processes
have been developed which enable laminates and veneers to be applied
during the forming of the shaped plywood substrate.
The result is a pre-finished and
pre-balanced component, eliminating
the need for secondary processes and labour associated with finishing.
Manufactured under heat and pressure the
preformed plywood substrate
has unrivalled balance and consistency thanks to its superior reduced
The substrate begins its life as a shape
that has no inherent memory or
stress in its construction. When compared with conventional methods of
achieving curves produced from flat substrate, the Preform products
simply do not have the desire to return to a former shape. This reduces
twisting and movement that can often cause latent defects to occur.
Once a shape is tooled, its design offers
you a modular solution time
after time. Unlike many other shaped substrates produced from manmade
materials, Preformed plywood can easily be adapted and worked.
