Design Reliability

Tailored solutions ensuring reliability and top-level production.

precision: from concept to component

We provide a full service approach, working closely with customers, to enable us to understand and satisfy their requirements. 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.

Using the benefits of CAD design, allied to wire erosion technology, we achieve an efficient progression between each stage of production. This helps minimise waste in strip design and facilitates selection of the most effective materials.

Tooling lead times have been significantly reduced due to the ability to select only the relevant data for a specific tooling task from a complex design. This data is then transferred directly to each wire eroder, eliminating 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.

The design process

Design Prototyping

Design / Prototype

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

Design Tooling


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

Design Stamping


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.

Design Plating


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

Design Moulding


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

Design Assembly


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