Some nice prototype forgings going out to the customer today, we take a long term view on forgings and want to work in partnership with our customers to develop forgings for the future.
In this example we have:
Designed the forging around the customer machining drawing (one forging, two handed parts)
Manufactured dies, produced a batch of 6 prototypes,
Heat Treated (at our sister company Con Mech Engineers Limited),
Materials tested in our UKAS approved mechanical testing laboratory,
Machined through our approved sub-contractor route Submitted FAIR and PPAP paperwork and dispatched.
These prototype parts will be fitted to heavy goods off road vehicles and will now be on 12 month testing in the desert and the Arctic. Looking forward to the feedback and pictures in due course and then making the production run in the future.
