Gantec Tool & Die offer a complete turnkey service from component design, plastic product design and development, customer liaising to plastic mould design, mould manufacture through to injection moulding the final product.
We design and manufacture simple or highly complex moulds to serve a number of industries including Packaging, Pharmaceutical, Homeware, Beverage, Automotive and Mining sectors.
Gantec boasts some state of the art machinery including CNC machines , laser welders and injection moulders resulting in high quality and high precision tooling.
Gantec is the trademarked owner of Smartmould™ systems. Making moulds intelligent.
We focus on servicing the Plastic Industry.
We design high-tech moulds for intricate components, including high speed automatic unscrewing moulds, incorporation of hot runner injection systems.
Moulds made & run by Gantec carry a mould lifetime guarantee. Ensuring no unforeseen maintenance costs and limited downtime.
We have 45+ years tooling experience in the field of injection mould tooling and blow moulds.
We offer a complete in house service. Starting at Product design and development, mould design and onto manufacturing of moulds.
From manufacturing new plastic injection moulds, compression & blow moulds, to repairs and maintenance of plastic moulds.
Our Injection moulding facility is quality and efficiency driven. We recently embarked on a launch into the closure industry with a complete 38mm range including a customized 2-tone 38mm CRC ratchet closure.Our injection moulding department has a range of machine from 85 Ton to 168 Ton. We make use of the lastest machine technology.
Our operations are staffed by a culturally diverse, skilled and experienced team of hands on
We make use of a state of the art cloud based MRP system (Manufacturing Resource Planning). This give us visible information at all times, from anywhere, and allows for seamless production management and system intergration.
We offer a Total Product Manufacturing Service, this service includes Product Design
and Development using the latest CAD Design software.
We then have Product Prototypes machined or 3D Printed Samples made, once approved we begin Design and Manufacturing of the Plastic Moulds.
We currently make use of specialised international software specific to plastic design.
Our strong design abilities help keep our customers ahead of their competition.
We have designed thousands of products for local as well as international companies.
We also offer a total project management service after the design phase, this service includes having development components machined or 3D Printed samples made, to Manufacturing of the moulds. As well as assisting in finding suitable converters for production.
We have our own CNC orientated toolroom to manufacture high quality, reasonably price
moulds, and High Precision machined parts. We maintain and service moulds including mould
reports and corrective action reports.
Our internal Micro Laser welding department carries out fast and unique repairs specific to the tool & die industry. We have been benchmarked by a world renowned German engineering University and received best in class for numerous disciplines.
Our experience in the art of Tool & Die making exceeds 50 years. We complete all aspects of the trade in-house. From design to prototyping all the way through to the final production.
We also consult for offshore tooling projects on moulds that are too big to handle locally. This service includes mould specifications on design, materials and heat treatments, continuous mould progress reports and inspection visits during the tool trial phase.
We are one of the first companies in South Africa to offer a laser welding service to the Tool & Die industry. We made a substantial investment in a High Quality German Laser welding machine.
Our Laser Welding division set us apart from most toolrooms in South Africa. We weld moulds for most Toolrooms and manufacturing concerns in South Africa as well as abroad. We have more than 12 Years experience in this field.
We consistently weld for Big International Brands such As Tupperware™. It allows us to repair and maintain moulds with a fast turnaround time to ensure customers remain in production and efficient.
Our service is specifically targeted to split line regeneration and small areas of damage. The method of this laser welding ensures the parts being welded will not bend or deform as there is minimal heat transfer. This allows thinner parts to be welded easily.
Here at Gantec we don’t compromise on quality, we operate highly advanced CNC machinery including CNC machining centres as well as CNC turning.
We recently acquired one of only 2 High-speed DMG-Mori machining centres in South Africa.
This machine allows us to lower machining times while keeping tighter tolerances.
Overall making our moulds less expensive and more accurate.
Gantec is the trademarked owner of Smartmould™ systems. Making moulds intelligent. SmartMould™ offers the latest technological
advancements in tool monitoring systems as well as safety.
Moulds fitted with the SmartMould™ system are able to link up to computers VIA a mini USB cable output on the mould itself.
Information such as Shot counts, Lifetime cycle time, recent cycle time, Efficiency percentages and much more.
All of our SmartMoulds™ have built in internal storage that contains all mould data including drawings, 3d Models, Bill of Materials and Material Certificates. Completely solving the problem of missing information or filing issues.
The system allows for monitoring of maintenance protocols ensuring tools are serviced on
time, reducing downtime and maintaining efficiency and profitability.
Safety Measures & systems are also built in to the tools on request to prevent damage where possible. These optional additions include using pressure safety switches, slide positioning trackers and many more.
