Design Engineering and Support

Our extensive in-house capabilities allow us to offer bespoke prototype solutions. With design and engineering input from the outset, we are able to provide our customers with valuable technical support. We encourage collaboration to, firstly, seek cost saving opportunities in design or specification whilst still achieving the desired outcome and, secondly, avoid any design changes or issues further down the line. This goes in-hand with extensive timing plans to monitor and report back key milestones to our customers. We pride ourselves on delivering on time always and to the highest industry standards.

Tooling

Significantly reduced tooling lead times for prototyping are achieved by different tool materials and methods to our volume tools. As a result, parts can be delivered from 5 weeks of confirmation. Our in-house tool manufacturing also gives us total control and we can rapidly respond to change, preventing delays in schedules. Highly complex parts and forms are equally achievable for prototypes, with the complexity dictating the number of tools and subsequently the cost.

Processes

Our in-house processes such as perforating, expanding, laser cutting, and brake pressing also enable us to keep tooling costs to a minimum as well as photo etching capabilities. We are able to use more in-house processes to reduce capital expenditure for tooling and achieve lower lifetime costs for low volume.

We are able to take our prototyping approach for pre-production phases and also full programmes of volumes from 30 cars to 15,000.

Capabilities

Providing our clients with full service solutions that encompass our wide range of process capabilities and specialist manufacturing techniques.

Our CNC operated punch presses use a tool and die containing punches to stamp out a series of holes, producing your required perforated pattern.

Our dedicated, purpose-built expanded metal machines simultaneously slit and stretch longitudinally.

A selection of our dynamic machines can be strip, individually blank or coil fed.

Having our very own tooling manufacturer and using machines such as CNC milling, drilling and wire eroding apparatuses, we enjoy total control over the design and production it brings us.

Our in-house metal photochemical etching line can realise intricate designs faster and more efficiently than ever.

Our extensive in-house capabilities allow us to offer bespoke prototype solutions.

We are perfectly equipped for efficient high-volume production speeds up timescales, reducing piece price and also waste.

From efficiency and cost effective, to unique premium and branded options, we offer a wide range of coatings and processes to best fit the application, vision, and style.
