Component Design 

Tailored Solutions Ensuring Reliability and Efficient Production.

precision: from concept to component

At Batten & Allen, we provide customised solutions that guarantee dependability and high-quality output. Our full-service approach begins with a deep understanding of your needs, facilitated by close collaboration throughout the design process. By incorporating our expertise early in the design phase, you’ll benefit from a streamlined project that mitigates common snags during production – as well as having the opportunity to weave in additional value, right from the start. 

Complete Design Services 

We provide comprehensive precision engineering design solutions - including advice and prototyping, as well as tool design and build. Our capabilities range from single to 32 impression progression tools, underpinned by our extensive production and subcontract management expertise.

We also design and supply in-house and on-premises assembly equipment, ensuring a seamless integration from initial concept to final component. This integration not only minimises waste in strip design but also facilitates the selection of the most effective materials for each project. Our innovative approach allows for efficient, precise and value-driven manufacturing processes.


Advanced CAD and Wire Erosion Technology

We optimise the progression between each stage of production by leveraging the latest in CAD/CAM design and wire erosion equipment. 

Advanced CAD and Wire Erosion Technology

Reduced Lead Times Through Innovation 

We have significantly reduced tooling lead times by selecting only the relevant data for specific tooling tasks from complex designs. This data is directly transferred through a range of CAD/CAM software, eliminating the need for re-drawing.

Additionally, by standardising our modular design of tooling through the use of stock item parts, we can further decrease our lead times, enhancing our ability to meet your timelines swiftly.
