Mouldbox Secures Backing from Innovate UK

05 June 2018

Mouldbox has been awarded a grant from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, to develop its machine learning platform and design-to-product composite tooling service.

"This Innovate UK grant will really enable us to fast track Mouldbox development, allowing the benefits to quickly feed back into any and every sector of the industry," says Mouldbox CEO, Martin Oughton. "Our objective now is smooth service execution and, as the system continues to learn, we can focus the time saved on providing our clients with exceptional service."

"With high performance, time critical situations and excellent quality at the heart of everything KWSP are involved in, being involved with Mouldbox is solving a big problem with fast turnaround, high quality and competitive composite tooling prices," states Stuart Banyard of KWSP. "Mouldbox has already disrupted our traditional supply chain and the potential benefit to the industry at large is huge. We’re thrilled to have been on board from the beginning."

"The Mouldbox concept strongly aligns with the NCC key objectives and Industry 4.0 developments," states Garry Scott of the National Composites Centre. "It’s great to see such creative problem-solving within the industry and we’re very pleased to be supporting them."

"We are delighted to welcome Mouldbox as a new member of Composites UK," adds Stella Job of Composites UK. "Mouldbox provides a unique service which promises to save time, our highest value commodity, for manufacturers at the same time as providing a high quality tooling service. The machine learning capability is impressive."

Using its proprietary automation technology, Mouldbox specialises in the design and manufacture of tooling for composite parts. The company uses the latest in deep learning to offer instant quotes for a wide variety of part designs.
