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 which 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 experience, expert knowledge, and the latest Solidworks CAD modelling software to help us achieve innovative designs in partnership with our customers 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.
You need to test your new design for fit, form and function before committing to tooling? No problem. MRT can produce prototypes from your CAD data, using 3D printing, machining from solid, or sand casting.
For volume production you will need production tooling. Working with our specialist tooling partners, MRT will design and manufacture production tooling on your behalf.

Around 6 months ago, we took a hard look at how we use the data we have available to us at MRT Castings. We looked at everything from data being used by machines, data being created by machines all the way through to where data is being left on the cutting room floor and where data can potentially be corrupted or lost through human error.Read More
