Design for Manufacture
MRT’s technical team work in partnership with your 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 which can be manufactured efficiently, consistently and economically.
Once component designs are approved, MRT will design and manufacture high quality production tooling. Using our in-house toolroom, and specialist partners in the UK and Europe, our dies, clip tools, jigs and fixtures are built to the highest specifications, for accurate and repeatable production and excellent tool life. All tooling is 100% owned by the customer.
If you only require small production batches, sand casting offers a very economic introduction to casting, with low tooling costs and short lead times. This also makes it an ideal process for prototypes or pre-production trials. MRT provide sand castings in aluminium, zinc and copper based alloys.
