METYX Composites Tooling Center
METYX Composites has invested in a dedicated Tooling Business Unit, located in the 23,000 sq. m ‘state-of-the-art’ production facility at Manisa, Turkey, where glass multiaxial reinforcements and custom kits are also manufactured.
The METYX Composites Tooling Centre was set up in response to identified customer and market needs. It aims to offer design engineering and manufacturing support to customers looking for affordable, high quality tooling solutions.
The METYX Composites tooling team has particular expertise in large scale tooling projects for:
Tooling Engineering Services & Support
METYX Composites offers engineering support, using state-of-the-art design and production software, to customers in all industrial market sectors.
Master Plug (Pattern) Production
Standard master plugs are typically manufactured using a tooling board or foam-based glass reinforced laminate base, onto which and epoxy or polyester paste is applied. Once set, the paste is then precision
CNC milled to create the final surface before finishing. The last step is the application of a primer and top coat, which is finely sanded and polished to a high gloss surface finish.

FRP Mould Tool Production
FRP moulds with the required mechanical properties needed for moulding finished composite components are produced from the high quality, surface defect free master plugs. Large scale single and multi-split FRP moulds are produced for: hand lay, spray up, RTM, and infusion processes.
Direct Negative Moulds
Tooling Centre also produces large-scale moulds using a direct moulding technique, which is a very cost effective solution for producing prototypes and for one off or limited run components, especially for projects with a limited budget or tight timescale needed a fast tooling solution.
