Product Design

We can convert your ideas and sketches into product reality. We use our in-house expertise coupled with that of our external partners to consider every aspect of your project.

Using the latest Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software, your product can be designed for the optimum combination of plastic thickness and strength and load-bearing properties.

In today`s competitive business environment, it is no longer good enough to add extra plastic thickness just to be sure a product is strong enough. Over designing for strength is extremely costly.

Using FEA software, a part can be subjected to simulated loads in a variety of ways. Stress points are analysed and design changes are made to optimise strength and part weight.

Tooling Design

Our tool design team can convert your idea, sketch or technical drawing into production reality.

With over 20 years experience in this field, our designers will meticulously consider every intricate feature of your product to ensure that the tooling we make has all the features required for high speed, consistent profile production.

We also have the flexibility to design and consider tooling for a low volume R&D application for industries such as defence and mining.

In such applications, we would design good, functional, low speed tooling that enables the customer to receive a low volume product in a cost effective and timely manner

Tooling Manufacture

Using our Sodick 4-axis wire EDM coupled with our experienced tooling and development technicians and an array of metal working machines, we are able to control the design and manufacture of the tooling.

From the receipt of steel blanks and product drawing, right through to the finished part, all steps of the process are carefully managed to ensure that the finished product is everything it should be.


Co-Extrusion is a process by which it is possible to produce one plastic strip comprising various visual or mechanical properties.

The extruded plastic strip maybe rigid with a flexible hinge or fin. It may be a base colour with a different stripe along it.

Co-Extruded plastic strips are useful for incorporating several features in one product, reducing the number of parts required for an assembly and in many instances, reduces labour costs.
