Fast Response & Tech Advice

Door Washer Tool

An enquiry was received from an existing customer for  washers to be included in a high strength security door system.

This was an existing product that was being produced by another supplier at a high unit cost.

We were able to promptly quote for a press tool to produce the washers to a flatness tolerance beyond the normal commercial standard.

The unit price and tooling cost was accepted by our customer as the maths stacked up in terms of a quick payback on tooling investment.

The rapid tooling development principles that we follow allowed samples to be submitted quickly.

Feedback was absorbed from our customer and the first batch produced to their delight.

The quality and cost that was achieved along with our fast response at all stages secured this component as a new product for us.


Fast Response

Universal Clamp Plate

An enquiry was received for a replacement clamp plate with a rough outline Drawing.

The clamp plate to be quoted needed design and development to achieve improved strength due to failure under load of existing product.

The clamp plate would be welded onto various assemblies and was urgently required to replace failing items.

There was a limited tooling budget  and a need to rapidly develop a workable product.

We were able to quote quickly after considering various options and then set about the task.

Using our rapid tooling development approach and our in house expertise we produced a sample and established key dimensional features.

We were able to identify with the customer these key features to improve strength and reduce cost.

The process undertaken resulted in laser cut parts being formed in our press brake cell and finished to a high standard.

The first batch was supplied in time to  facilitate  their urgent  build programme .

We were pleased to demonstrate our “fast response metal engineering “ techniques and look forward to a good relationship with this new customer.
