Manufacturing Services.

Our extensive experience and engineering background enables us to supply practical solutions to UK manufacturers.

We will work closely with you to ensure that we fully understand your requirements and, most importantly, provide a solution that can be successfully manufactured. Over the years, we have worked with a variety of clients including:

  • Mould Toolmakers.
  • Press Toolmakers.
  • Vacuum Forming companies.
  • Blow Mould companies.
  • Model & Pattern makers.

Our focus is delivering a great service to our clients. It doesn’t matter whether it’s producing a product design, prototype or production tooling, we believe in working closely with a client to make sure that the most practical and cost-effective solution is achieved and their expectations are met.

Our manufacturing services:

We offer a wide range of services from assisting customers reading problem CAD files to creating CAD models. Our services include:

  • Read/write neutral formats of 2D & 3D Cad files – e.g. DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP
  • Read/write some native CAD formats – Autocad, Siemens NX, Visi.
  • Convert 2D drawings to 3D CAD models.
  • Check and fix problems in component or tooling CAD models.
  • Add or modify shrinkage, draft angles, blend radii
  • Identify split lines and separate into tool inserts.
  • Create 3D CAD files of the tooling and EDM electrodes for spark erosion
  • Create 2D drawings or DXF files from 3D CAD models.
  • Generate of cutter paths tailored for 3+2axis machine tools.
  • 3D laser scanning of worn or damaged parts or tooling and reverse engineering the data to provide digitally restored CAD files ready for manufacture.

Our Software

We use Vero’s Machining Strategist to create NC toolpaths ideal for both standard and High speed milling. This powerful CAM product generates optimum roughing and finishing toolpaths from the complex shapes generated by 3D Cad systems.

After checking, the toolpaths are processed for your milling machine tool control. All programs are supplied with detailed tool set-up sheets to ensure that the machine operator has all the information they need to run the programs with confidence.
