This project involved the development of 5 x 16 and 1 x 8 impression production tooling, a total package of 6 tools, delivered over 20 weeks. We delivered the tools a remarkable 6 weeks ahead of schedule, exceeding our customer’s expectations.
The package involved 3 of our design and project engineers and 10 of our internal toolmaking team, showcasing the engineering and toolmaking talent here in the North East of England. Additionally, we had a dedicated NPI team that covered the entire project scope, from initial DFM (Design for Manufacture) to the final production-ready products.
The package was delivered with steel condition reports showing variations of less than 3 microns from manufacture processes, and with sets of spare inserts to ensure production continuity, thoughtfully provided in protective cases, further emphasising our commitment to customer service.
It brings us immense pride to share some of the positive feedback we received from our customer:
“The quality of tooling you produce and management of tooling programs is the best we’ve had.”
“Your tools are a benchmark for our business; we showcase them internally to promote the level of quality we expect.”
