Steel Moulds & Prototyping

Quality products start with quality drawings

STRONG FOUNDATIONS

Before any raw Australian steel is cut, welded or folded by our professional team, and long before the final project takes shape, there’s a vital process that must be completed.

Design and drafting work is the foundation for any steel fabrication project. It provides answers such as the dimensions of the various steel components, how much steel is required, how each piece of steel is welded or bolted together, the fabrication standards required and so much more.

Every minute detail must be included in the design and drafting, to ensure the final steel fabrication project meets the client’s needs.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED, NOTHING YOU DON’T

We can help you with custom built steel moulds & drafting needs

Every steel fabrication project starts with a design drawing, which is essentially an aesthetic concept and rendering of what the client needs. Once finalised, this is then followed up by shop drawings that provide the detailed plans required to transform Australian steel into the final outcome.

The shop drawings include everything necessary to manufacture, fabricate and assemble the project. This includes the materials required, the dimensions, how each piece of steel will be assembled together, how each section will be installed and erected and more.

All in-house, all sorted

Kelly Steel has the capabilities to undertake all design and drafting work in-house. We work with architects, engineers, suppliers and others to complete highly accurate drawings. Our designing and drafting is completed with precision and accuracy, to ensure the project is completed successfully to the exact requirements of the client.

Once drawings are finalised, we can then begin transforming steel into the final product, before delivery and installation on your site.

Steel Moulds & Prototyping FAQ

A mould prototype is an initial model or sample of a mould used to test and refine the steel design before full-scale production. It allows for evaluating the steel mould’s functionality, accuracy, and efficiency in producing the desired parts. Kelly Steel uses prototyping to ensure that our custom-built Australian steel moulds meet all specifications and requirements before proceeding with large-scale fabrication.

Mould steel refers to the specific type used to create moulds for casting and shaping other materials, such as concrete or plastic. This steel is chosen for its durability, strength, and resistance to wear, ensuring the mould can be used repeatedly without degrading. At Kelly Steel, we use high-quality Australian steel to fabricate moulds designed to last and perform reliably over numerous production cycles.

The time required to mould parts after fabricating the mould can vary based on their complexity and size, as well as the production volume requested. Generally, once the mould is ready and set up for production, the process of moulding parts can begin immediately and is typically completed within a few days to a week. We aim to provide efficient turnaround times to meet your production schedules.

The number of parts that can be moulded from a single cavity prototype mould per day depends on the mould’s design, the mould material, and the production process used. On average, a well-designed single cavity mould can produce several dozen to hundreds of parts daily, depending on each part’s cycle time and complexity. Kelly Steel optimises our mould designs and production processes to maximise efficiency and output while maintaining high-quality standards.
