About Us

At Replicade, we are passionate about Tool Control. 

Our products are designed to give you the control you need with no fuss. 

In 2001, Replicade was founded as a foam inlay manufacturing company in Stewarton, Scotland. Our focus was on producing high quality foam inserts and tool control foams for Aerospace companies.

Working with clients across the UK, Europe, USA, Middle East and Oceania, this started to expand to cover other diverse sectors, including Automotive, Cultural Heritage, Food and Drink and Medical and Healthcare.

How the foam drives the technology

Building our own software

In late 2001, we designed and built our own in-house software for designing the foam inserts.

This led to our patent (GB2490566), which covers the multi-depth push-downs that we can offer in our tooled foams.

CAD/CAM Software

Then in 2015, we extended the software to generate the CAD/CAM files that are run on the routing machines. The main driver was to streamline and improve our own manufacturing process while maintaining the high quality finish of our foam tooling.

Connected Apps

In 2016, we released a custom app designed to streamline the initial steps of production process, namely the images of the items that were to be profiled for control foams.

Electronic access

Also in 2016, leveraging the centralised platform and the modular architecture, the electronic locking module naturally fitted well with the tool control cabinets we offer, allowing the users to both control access to individual drawers through an app.

Connected Manufacturing

Building our own custom software has driven our innovation in connected manufacturing.

The Replicade platform was built initially to support the cloud-based Design software but the possibilities of connected manufacturing were soon realised.

From one platform, everything is connected and the selection of different modules offers different asset management possibilities to streamline your own production and reduce costs
