Design & Engineering

Our world-class design and engineering team develops optimum solutions

Our dedicated design and engineering team works with specialists across our integrated facility to develop the very best solutions for our customers. They design components, tooling and the optimum production processes to maximise value and ensure quality.

Whether you have a detailed specification, are coming to us with an outline challenge or something in between, our team will work with you to develop the best solution. The team uses the latest technologies and trusted design systems such as CATIA, Siemens NX and QForm 3D for rapid development. We can produce detailed, on-screen models and simulations, 3D-printed concepts and prototypes.

We work with a diverse range of materials. Aluminium and titanium are our most popular but we also use other specialist materials such as magnesium and nickel.

Full life-cycle support

We know that your requirements and product specifications may change over time. Our design and engineering team can work with you to make requested changes and corrections throughout the life of each component while ensuring continuity.

Talk to us about your challenges

If you have an existing or upcoming forging or machining challenge, come and talk to one of our technical specialists. We could help you develop the optimum solution for cost-effective production, on-time delivery and quality.

How It Works

Our team of expert design engineers work with our customers to produce detailed forging designs, optimum production processes and tooling (such as dies) using the latest technology and decades of experience. We use on-screen simulations, 3D models made using additive-layer printers and prototypes so customers know what will be delivered and can ensure it is right before signing off the designs.
