Mould Tool, Design and
This project involved the production of a precision tool for the
manufacture of an over-moulding for a lawn motor drive. Flymo is
proud of its reputation as a manufacture of quality consumer machinery
and the mould tool therefore needed to be highly durable and easy
to produce on an automated production line.
Wire and Spark Erosion,
Sub Contract Machining
This project involved the production of a fluid shaped antenna cap
moulding for a new Motorola mobile phone. The finished component
would need to be highly durable, with a matched finish to the rest
of the mobile phone.
Sub-Contract Injection Moulding
This brief required the complete production of a 3-D camera housing,
where the finished part would serve both a decorative and assembly
function. Polaroid is one of the worlds leading manufacturers
of cameras and the finished component would therefore need to attractive
and highly durable.
This project entailed the production of three, 4-cavity mould tools
for the manufacture of a dashboard temperature control dial for
an end-client in the automotive sector. The customer had initial
designs for the components but required advice on gating for dimensional
