DESIGN AND CO-DESIGN
For the automotive industry, we produce tooling for covers, gearboxes, hydraulic power steering, starter motors, sumps, alternators, accessories and other components.
For the pharmaceutical/hospital industry, we produce moulds for sharps and special waste containers.
For the electronic and electrical industry, we produce tooling for housings and enclosures for equipment, instruments and remote controls.
For the household goods industry, we produce tooling for containers, rubbish bins, bottle racks, cutlery trays, dish drainers and components for household appliances.
For the irrigation and gardening industry, we produce tooling for rubber hose fittings and parts for hose reel carts.
The feasibility study, carried out prior to the design stage and subsequent engineering of the product, involves evaluating the various technical solutions, allowing for shrinkage and deformation of the raw material, taking into account production-related requirements and all aspects aimed at optimizing the moulding or casting process. Our engineers work closely with the customer throughout this stage.
We adopt a thorough, productive co-design approach, working in partnership with you from the initial concept through to the final design to come up with the best possible solution to optimize the finished product and meet your requirements.
We turn your ideas into tangible reality by working out a design to fit your brief and creating a 3D solid model, focusing above all on the finished look of the design and ensuring the product can be suitably industrialized.
We generate tool paths based on 3D data compiled in-house or provided directly by you to create dies, moulds and prototypes.
Once we have determined the 3D data for the tooling, the design is forwarded to the toolroom where it will actually be built.
Tooling is machined using modern CNC machining centres and wire and sinker EDM, with a CAD/CAM system creating a direct link to the design department. This allows the part to be shaped to suit individual requirements and the details of the die/mould to be defined with the utmost accuracy.
Once tooling has been produced, it undergoes in-house testing with the aid of sophisticated 3D inspection instruments. Extra care is taken when it comes to checking hydraulic circuits for leaks and checking the play between coupled parts.
We endeavour to provide the fastest possible turnaround in order to serve you better.
