I want to develop a new component from initial design
You have a vision for a new product. You know the functionality and the aesthetics that you need. But unless your product can be manufactured economically, repeatably, reliably and within the correct timeframes then it will never achieve its full potential.
MRT's technical team have been designing successful cast components for many decades. We will work in partnership with your product designers to develop and adapt your product concept or design to optimise it for manufacture. We use our years of experience, expert knowledge and the latest Solidworks CAD modelling software to help us achieve innovative designs which can be manufactured within the controlled parameters required.
Designing castings is a specialist skill. Die cast components require specific features such as draft taper, even wall thicknesses and the avoidance of undercuts and isolated heavy sections. All of these issues can be easily overcome if you work directly with our team before you freeze your design. Costs of machining, surface finishing and assembly can also be dramatically reduced if we are consulted early in the design process.
Need to test your new design for fit, form and function before committing to tooling?
MRT can produce prototypes from your CAD data, using 3D printing, machining from solid or sand casting.
For volume production, we can assist with your production tooling needs.
Working with our specialist tooling partners, MRT will design and manufacture production tooling on your behalf.
Our in-house tool room allows us to expertly create machining fixtures and tooling modifications, while new toolmaking projects are managed by a select group of specialist sub-contractors which we carefully oversee on your behalf.
