Howard Bros have huge experience in engraving mould tools. We can import your artwork/surface in various formats and then combine them in our software to enable us to cut your tools.

We can also supply electrodes in graphite or copper, formed or non-formed, offset ruffing electrodes for deeper applications and final finishing electrodes.

These can be supplied ‘naked’ or ‘mounted’ on the 3R holder system for use with your own spark eroding machines.
Intricate designs can be machined onto these electrodes, which can then be modelled on our software.
