Tooling Manufacture & Maintenance
Staying true to our roots, C&F offers full on site tool design, manufacture, and maintenance of stamping tools, fixtures, jigs, and assembly machines. Our experience in the design & build of all types of sheet metal stamping tooling is second to none.
All production tooling undergoes a Preventative Maintenance program. All tool maintenance, repair, Engineering Change, and VA-VE activity is carried out on site with full design control and no interruption to customer deliveries.
We also partner with other tool-making companies to manage large scale tooling projects at the most competitive prices.
At our C&F Tooling, Ireland facility, we can offer a very comprehensive CNC machining service with our extensive range of state-of-the-art machining centres, mills, lathes, surface grinders, and Wire EDM machines.
