Our Mission

Ensuring Successful Manufacturing of Complex Composites

Smart Tooling provides formable, reusable tooling solutions for manufacturing composite parts with complex and trapped geometries that reduce labor hours, increase throughput, decrease consumables, and improve quality.

 

Our History

The History of Smart Tooling

Established in 2010 as a division of Spintech, LLC, Smart Tooling commercialized shape memory polymer tooling technology for manufacturing composite parts by providing custom solutions for early adopters such as Cobham, NAVAIR, NASA and Spirit AeroSystems.

With a product pivot in 2016, Smart Tooling broke through cost barriers for proliferation and are continually adding Smart Tooling customers and applications.
