Tooling & Design

Your project starts with tooling and design, understanding your end goals and how these can be achieved through cold roll forming and in line operations.  

Through collaboration with our highly qualified engineers, you can integrate the latest hardware and 3D CAD software into the R&D process. Adanced processes offer faster design and increase manufacturing accuracy, with simulation technology providing experimentation that pushes the boundaries of the material.  

Many areas in which you can benefit include structural design calculations, material evaluation and product specifications – in addition to the integration of existing process technologies and the development of new ideas. 

Techniques used to develop products and processes include: 

  • Theoretical evaluation 
  • Geometric profile optimisation 
  • Computer simulation
  • Rapid prototyping 
  • Physical testing 
  • Metallurgical analysis 
  • Process capability studies
