Precision formed sheet metal components

Cheltenham Tool Company is the Aeroform division of the Universal Steels and Aluminium Group and has been established since 1947.

 

Our single, self-contained premises is situated in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire approximately 100 miles west of London, and midway between Birmingham and Bristol. Our site area is 25,800 square feet and has a covered area of 14,600 square feet.

Cheltenham Tool Company manufactures precision formed sheet metal components. Our processes include business process re-engineering, project management, kitted operations, tool design and development, component production, trimming, profiling, finishing, heat treatments and sub assembly. We produce components using ferrous and non-ferrous metals including inconels and titanium. We work primarily within the aerospace and defence industries, as well as having a presence in the automotive and industrial metal forming markets.

Whilst fully capable in most forms of conventional metal pressing and forming, the company specialises in the comparatively uncommon fluid forming technique, and the Saab process in particular. This technique uses fewer drawing operations and simpler tooling than would normally be used in conventional drawing. The use of fluid forming makes it possible to draw very precise components and complex shapes at various depths with repeatable accuracy.
