Initial Enquiry & NPI
Initially an enquiry can be made via the contact form, email or telephone call to discuss the outline design of any new casting. We will take time to listen carefully to your needs, the unique characteristics of your new product and the specific requirements of your industry.
We are able to provide assistance in ‘designing for casting’ at any stage of the product design from initial thoughts and sketches through to final ‘ready for production’ stage designs.
Drawings and 3d cad data can be accepted in most formats and can be e-mailed to us in total confidence. Confidentiality is assured, we are often working on prototype projects and regularly work under nondisclosure agreements.
Once a final component design is ready we will arrange for the manufacture of appropriate tooling. We will design all casting methodology to be incorporated into the new tooling and work closely with our toolmakers at all times. We will provide timing plans and take care of the project management right through to production release. First off dimensional reporting, mechanical testing APQP and any PPaP requirements can be provided.
