Design

We are able to offer design services as a supplement to manufacturing orders.

Our design Engineers work along side the customer to ensure each product is carefully assessed for manufacturing feasibility.

Using CAD facilities such as IDEAS and CATIA v5 we are able to quickly interface with the customer, presenting virtual build models and modified solutions to meet the latest customer needs.

Supporting the needs of Value Engineering through the design stages is paramount to our continued success

Development & Tool Management

Component development along with tool design and procurement enables us to manage a total solution for product introduction that is built on knowledge and experience. 

Your product can be developed through tool manufacture using techniques such as laser cutting, CNC wiring, and hand crafting.

We offer tool construction that is guaranteed for product life and fully maintained by our in-house Toolroom.

Prototype

We supply single or multiple prototype samples either as a follow on from our design services or as a pre-production compliment.

Using production intent or synthetic materials we are able to provide a working model of your product allowing physical development as well as functional trials.

 

Prototype Manufacture

  • Rapid Prototyping Models
  • Single Prototypes
  • Small Batch Samples
  • Product Prototype

 




Manufacture

Providing production services using customer or commissioned tooling in a Lean manufacturing environment.


Each product is carefully monitored to ensure 100% quality and maximum productivity throughout, this approach supports our
ability to continually supply cost effective high quality fabrications.

To achieve this we use the following Lean tools.

  • Just in Time Manufacture
  • SMED
  • Six Sigma
  • Seven Wastes
  • 5Sís
  • Kaizen
