All the right equipment for all the right jobs

With a range of manufacturing equipment, including CNC machining stations, EDM wire erosion and abrasive water jet cutting, tooling lead times are minimised and the right processes is used for the right product. Glenbeth makes tooling for components with tolerances down to 0.05mm and dimensions of the 1m, for presses up to 300 tonnes, so you can be sure your design can come to life.

Water Jet Cutting As well as its conventional machining equipment, Glenbeth is one of the few toolmakers offering an abrasive water jet cutting service.

This gives extra benefits, including:

Significantly reduced lead times as a result faster component development
Certain tooling components can be manufactured more quickly with better control, giving improved tooling performance
Eliminated heat affecting zone around the edges, which occurs with laser cut blanks
No edge deformation through tool contact, so small batch parts I made to high degree of accuracy and component dimensions are better controlled
Opportunity to manufacture prototypes and small quantities quickly
