At Lenoch Engineering, we believe your automated machinery deserves the best serving tooling. Not only does high performing tooling facilitate the production of quality goods, but it can reduce downtime and increase the time experienced between downtimes.

Lenoch Engineering offers retooling and the complete manufacturing of bespoke, optimised tooling to supplement automated machinery and the efficiency of your operations.

Our flexible services are designed to ensure we can fulfil all design briefs, providing cost-effective solutions for projects of all sizes. The experienced team at Lenoch Engineering work closely alongside clients to be able to achieve this, guiding clients through our fully managed service.

Lenoch Engineering’s reverse engineering capabilities enable us to rebuild worn or damaged tools in line with existing machinery specifications; we use the latest CMM technology, including a Faro Arm, to produce detailed CAD models prior to manufacturing. We further offer a complete design and manufacturing service to create new tooling, alongside new build turnkey solutions.

This nationwide service can be performed with all types of materials for retooling services, with delivery and installation services moreover performed as required.

What is tooling?

Tooling refers to the components used within machinery that are needed to produce a product. Tooling can take on many forms, designed to perform cutting, forming, grinding, turning, and many other operations.

What are the types of factory tooling?

There are many types of factory tooling: dies, press tools, cutting tools, jigs and fixtures. These can be standardised or bespoke, and depending on the product, the equipment required will vary.

Why is tooling important?

Tooling and the quality of tooling is important because the quality of the finished product will depend on it. The use of incorrect tooling may also result in products that can break quickly or do not have the correct tolerances. On the other hand, good tooling will ensure the smooth running of manufacturing processes.
