Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Can you help me design my product?
A1: Yes. Absolute Tooling have expertise in both product design and tooling. The product design process starts with market research and an initial review for overall project viability. We aim to gain an understanding early in the project of likely costs, sales volumes and pricing. We will also review relevant Intellectual Property which may impact on design requirements. We will work closely with our client to develop up concepts that meet both the engineering needs and aesthetic requirements of the product, for a first rate result. Once designs are under-way, Absolute Tooling can quickly 3D print physical models in-house to assist in the product design process. In-house 3D printing can save a tremendous amount of time during the product refinement process. This enables better solutions, faster.

Happy Customers

Matta Products Ltd have had tooling built at ATS since 1991.

The majority of these tools are 1.5 tonne and over. Not only are they large and also complex in design, the quality is first class.

In recent years we have looked at and been tempted by the cheap tooling prices available from China. In the end we have always stuck with the ATS team, due to the service, design expertise, and input into product development.

We also see them as a vital support industry to our business and see them as a top tool making company in New Zealand.
