DESIGN RELIABILITY

We aim to provide a full service approach, working closely with customers, to enable us to fully understand and satisfy their requirements not only for the finished component but the complete supply chain of the product. This includes precision engineering design advice, prototyping, tool design and build, which can range from single to 32 impression progression tools. Together with production and sub-contract management we also create and supply in house and on-premises assembly equipment.

By utilising the benefits of CAD design, allied to wire erosion technology, we achieve an efficient progression between stages of production in the design and development of our tool-making. This helps us to minimise waste in strip design and select the most effective materials.

Tooling lead times have been significantly reduced due to the ability to select ‘on screen’ only the relevant data for a specific tooling task from a complex design. This data is then transferred directly to each wire eroder, eliminating time-consuming re-drawing. Furthermore, by standardising our modular design of tooling, through the use of stock item parts, we are able to reduce our lead times even further and increase our production efficiency. With these increased efficiencies we are also able to implement waste reduction practices and reduce costs.

The Design Process

Design / Prototype

Our standard modular tool format which allows us to standardise the design process, resulting in significantly reduced lead time and improved repeatability.

Tooling

With a fully equiped toolroom we manufacture tooling to meet our customer demands.

Production

With 22 high speed Bruderer presses capable of running on a three shift system we have the ability to produce over 650 million parts per month.

Plating

We currently have 8 in-house electriplating lines with the capability of plating stamping components reel to reel, as well as pre-plating of continuous coil material for subsequent stamping.

Moulding

We work closely with a UK based plastic injection moulding company who deliver a full range of moulding services.

Assembly

Through integration into the customer assembly process we can design and supply a number of options for point of use assembly.
