Bayview Composites (BVC) understands the numerous ways and broad spectrum of materials available to produce Composite Tooling. Our goal is to provide pure value for our customers by balancing your needs with optimal tooling for your project, while keeping quality and cost at the forefront.
BVC has had the benefit of utilizing its own tooling during the various manufacturing stages. With this firsthand knowledge, we have never stopped innovating and redefining our processes. For a better understanding of our tooling capabilities, please review our tooling selections below.
Patterns/plugs are produced with 5-axis machined surfaces to ensure accuracy. Bayview composites offers numerous construction methods allowing customers to optimize performance and cost relationships.
Direct tools/molds are a cost effective solution for projects requiring short run production of only a few parts. A direct tool is very similar in construction to a pattern/plug but additional steps are added to stabilize the final machined tooling surface.
Production tools or long run molds are durable investments that produce high quality parts for hundreds of cycles or more. We manufacture tooling for open molding, resin infusion, LRTM and prepreg oven cure processes.
