Maximising output is key to remaining competitive so tool design can range from single to 32 impression progression tools.
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. Working closely with clients in the design and development of their components is part of that process. 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.
Further enhancement to reduce lead times has been made by standardising our modular design of tooling this allows the use of stock item parts which enables us to reduce our lead times even further and increase our production efficiency. With the benefit of this standardisation our tool change overs become more efficient.
With increased efficiencies we are able to implement waste reduction and reduce costs.
We have eight work stations using AutoCAD, 4 with Solid Works. We can accept Solidworks, AutoCAD .dwg - .dxf, Inventor.iges & .step drawing file formats.
