All our production activities are supported by a range of value added services.
As part of the technical service that we offer, the ‘design for manufacture’ facility is an integral part of the operation. Our sales, production and quality departments work closely with you to carry out detailed evaluations of your design and manufacturing requirements. This will provide you with:
- A dedicated manufacturing design and problem solving service
- Optimisation of your component design for manufacture
- Shorter programming and manufacturing lead times
- Lower material costs through reduced waste
- A quality product that performs in service
Drawing free manufacture
From your 3D models and supported by 2D drawings marked up with critical and/or non-critical features, we use modelling/programming/simulation software to interrogate the model to produce CNC programs for manufacturing. This can mean:
- Faster program times
- Mitigated risk of errors and therefore reduced prove out times
- Faster time to market
Customer service is our main priority, so where appropriate we will appoint your company a dedicated account manager and if required a primary contact for a specific project.
Consolidating these activities into one supplier minimises the potential impact of external influences to the fulfilment of your project.
