Engineering Development and Prototyping
We offer a flexible and highly supportive approach to bespoke plastic product design and development with the expertise and facilities to handle the complete process or tailored support for your own engineering design team.
Product development in bespoke plastic and acrylic design is a crucial stage of the process that profoundly affects every other aspect of fabrication, assembly and delivery. Many of our UK and European clients come to us with a concept on aspects of form and branding, but where our expertise can add the most value is in advising from a design for manufacture viewpoint.
Advice and guidance given
We want to ensure you utilise the ideal material for purpose and understand the huge range of finishing options available, or that minor changes in a design allowing it to be fabricated on particular pieces of machinery may reduce unit costs and turnaround times.
With almost 60 years of experience as plastics, acrylics and perspex fabricators, CNC machining and vacuum forming every kind of plastic and acrylic into a myriad of custom designed products we can offer you a depth of engineering, fabrications and manufacturing expertise in this area that few others can.
We will work closely with you throughout the project
Our plastic design and development approach revolves around close communication; we look for as much detail as possible in the brief and build a strong understanding of your requirements and the needs within your market sector so that we can really comprehend your perspective and apply our expertise to enhancing the final product to be truly fit for purpose.
The product design team bring decades of experience and a highly personalised approach; you’ll always be talking to the same people with that essential understanding of your bespoke fabrication requirements.
Specialist CAD design software
We operate a modern CAD system and fully automated machinery that can precisely fabricate directly from the software. 3D modelling from IGIS data can also be used and is often applied to vacuum forming projects.
Besides guaranteeing accurate fabrication this computer controlled approach also speeds the process whether for high volume, one-offs or in prototyping which greatly aids the development process and ensures all communication has been fully understood and the product is ideal for purpose.
Whether we provide the complete plastic engineering service or work alongside your own product designers or consultants, involving us early in every stage of a bespoke plastic fabrication guarantees getting the best possible solution for your requirements. To learn more about our plastic product design approach, or to discuss a project with us no matter how early you are in the development process or where you are in the UK or Europe, contact us at any time at our facilities just outside London in Kent.
