How we work

Prototyping

We create casting prototypes to the highest levels of complexity with a rapid turnaround without compromising on quality.

Wherever possible a prototype is an important stage in the process of new product development. We conduct feasibility studies on concept designs to help steer a project towards a successful outcome with minimal risk prior to manufacture.

With the introduction of 3D modelling and the latest technologies and processes, the complexity of casting requirements becomes ever more intricate. We are able to respond to all types of prototypes with a rapid turnaround without compromising on quality.

We continually invest in the latest testing and inspection technology to assist with the build and accuracy of prototypes. Some of this software leads the way in today’s market by delivering a complete CAD-based inspection solution. These deliver fast, precise and graphical comparisons between digital reference models and original parts for first-article inspection, production inspection and supplier quality. The development of full production tooling and systems then becomes a straight forward and cost effective process. As well as this we have the capability to implement pouring simulations using CAD geometries on state of the art software in order to guarantee the most effective and economical method of manufacturing prototypes we take on.
