Aluminium Tooling

The UK's #1 Manufacturer of Aluminium Tooling

RP Technologies has been making aluminium tooling for almost two decades. RP’s founding members have 80 years of combined toolmaking experience between them.

We produce tools which are often complex, and which are highly robust and built to last. 

We have produced over 2000 tools from our British production facility for some of the biggest companies in the UK, Europe, the US, and the Far East.

We enjoy a tremendous amount of repeat custom from large organisations, SME’s, product design agencies and start-ups. We are fast, reliable, and produce high quality workmanship.

What is It?

RP Technologies design and manufacture precision aluminium injection mould tooling for prototype, pre-production, and production components. We have a very strong reputation within the industry for quality, complexity, and for the excellent standard of our customer service.

Each tool that we design has dedicated technician who looks after it from concept through to final production. Our dedicated team of Quality Engineers are on hand at all times to fully inspect components to ensure that they achieve tight tolerances and pass critical functionality, performance, and cosmetic inspections.


We manufacture all our aluminium tooling from our purpose-built 25,000 sq. ft production facility in the West Midlands. We are ideally placed in the centre of the country so that finished components can be dispatched quickly to customers across the length and breadth of the UK.

We provide in-house tool design and manufacture for single or multi cavity tools, carried out by some of the most skilled, expert, and experienced toolmakers in the industry. 

We have the latest state-of-the-art machinery and technology, and we are constantly reinvesting in the company to improve and enhance our capabilities wherever possible.


The benefits of aluminium tooling over other types of toolmaking are extensive.

Aluminium tooling is a more cost-effective option than steel tooling, but still carries many of the same benefits. 

It also allows for ease of modification to the tooling itself, meaning that tools can be adapted over time, if necessary, thus potentially saving further investment in the long run.

At RP Technologies, we store each tool for our customers at no extra cost in a secure storage facility. We also maintain each tool over time as and when necessary.


We offer a variety of finishes for aluminium tooling. Whether it be texturing, engraving, polishes, or bead blasting, we can provide the best possible finish for your aluminium tool.

We have some of the most expert toolmakers in the business, each of whom has a wealth of experience when it comes to aluminium tooling and the various finishing options available.

We’re on hand at all times to offer best-in-class advice on the particular type of finish that would be most suitable for your aluminium tooling.
