Omnitool designs and manufactures world class thermoform tooling, match metal trim dies and Pre-punch tooling as well as blow mold and injection mold tooling. Whether we start from a napkin sketch, a product sample or CAD data, our Engineering Department will work with your requirements to ensure your tooling is delivered on time and on budget. That includes a mid-program review and a final tool review.

All of our tools are tested to ensure we deliver on our promises and we have invested in the equipment to do so. We employ coordinate measuring machines, die handlers and heater controllers to ensure that our tooling works as intended, the first time. We have been designing and building tooling for over 35 year and know that It’s a major investment and we work hard to maximize your return.

Thermoform Mold Tooling
Omnitool designs and builds form tools for a wide range resins for solid sheet and foam. We design and cut complex cavity shapes using the latest five-axis technology and have built hundreds of tools integrating quick-change tooling architecture that enables our customers to cost-effectively form various products within a product family. We also have extensive experience in third-motion tooling mechanics for forming deep draw parts

Match Metal Trim Tooling
We design and manufacture vertical and horizontal match metal trim dies to trim any resin in solid sheet or foam. We build single piece and component trim tooling with tight-tolerance punch and die clearance (see table below for clearance information). We also offer guidance for proper trim die handling/loading.

Pre-punch Trim Tooling
We design and build both integrated and separate station pre-punch tooling to deliver near flawless side-venting on surfaces that are difficult to trim. We also design and build pin venting stations.

Blow Mold Tooling
Omnitool builds Tooling for the blow mold industry. Our extensive work in the engineering and manufacturing of aluminum tooling gives us a leg up when creating blow molds. We have created molds with in mold punches that eliminate costly secondary operations.

Injection Mold Tooling
We don’t do that many of them but the tools we have made have been beautiful and have received rave reviews by the companies that run them.
