A UK company with a background in working for various high end automotive manufacturers and Formula 1 race teams is specialising in rapid prototyping technology and is offering a wide range of manufacturing technologies and services for design and production of various elements to manufacturers in need of low volume (custom made) elements. They are looking for a subcontracting agreement.
The Brighton based company is young, but has a long track-record in automotive design and manufacturing. They would like to be subcontracted to provide low volumes of elements and prototypes of devices with the use of additive manufacturing technologies (3D printing) with primary focus on automotive related sectors.
Their staff have also traditional manufacturing expertise in casting and moulding, providing rubber, plastic and metal parts. In addition, they are active in computer aided design (or CAD) including three-dimensional modelling, product design, lightweight component design and manufacture - glass/carbon reinforced composites.
They are interested in subcontracting agreements with manufacturers from different industries (from automotive to medical sector) in need of small quantities of complex parts or products.
The team members have a wealth of expertise in working as engineers for numerous known brands such as the Koenigsegg CCX supercar, Mercedes AMG Petronas, McLaren Automotive, Ferrari and Toyota Motorsport. Their most recent work included prototyping the future city car for the Gordon Murray Design. This gives them an experience driven advantage over competition.
The advantages of 3D printing are simple: additive manufacturing opens many new possibilities to manufacture complex structures, shapes that cannot be created with traditional moulding or machining processes. Rapid prototyping provides:
• high accuracy prototypes, critically inspected to requirements
• wide range of processes to cover different prototype needs
• prototypes in real materials to use for low volume production
• prototypes in equivalent materials to use for sales and marketing.
Manufacturers of spare parts and elements primarily for the automotive, defence, aeronautics and medical industries who have regular one-off or small series (low volume of elements) of highly complex parts or who need to create parts for i.e. complex repairs.
