Sourcing machined components in small quantities.

Specialist equipment manufacturers can find it difficult to source machined components, particularly in small quantities. Finding the right supplier able to provide the skill set along with the willingness to help is critical.

Shearwater, a manufacturer of counter surveillance instruments came to Bray Plastics when they required parts machined in  Phenolics (Tufnol) and FR4 GRP (glass reinforced polyester / fibreglass) sheet as the images below, show.

From Concept to Profitable Product

Helping designers turn their ideas into profitable product is one of Bray Plastics’ primary functions.

The example shown is a sensor housing first fabricated for proof of concept and testing. It also allowed for a pre-production run.

On approval, we redesigned the housing suitable for injection moulding and produced a 3D print. The customer approved this printed version and Bray supplied the final injection moulded production housing.

Plastic machining for cost-effective prototypes

Prototyping and conceptual design seems to be dominated by the 3D print market at the moment. Clever software allied to the plethora of 3D printers has inspired the industrial press that innovation comes down to kit.

Granted, in some cases this will have an element of merit but real innovation is still initiated in the head of the designer and his team with a large dose of good old fashioned ‘elbow grease’.

Components do not always have to be hugely complicated to warrant prototyping for approval. Size, material and fitness for purpose may restrict the new technologies. However, the requirement still has to be fulfilled.

Creating prototype components for Peli BioThermal

Peli BioThermal is a world leader in thermal packaging, they use innovative design to enhance their products for their customers, prototyping large components in polypropylene and polystyrene foams. These can be used and tested to obtain ‘real world’ data before committing to tooling and production methods.

 

Bray Plastics have been pleased to help Peli BioThermal by machining these foams. Intricate shapes and forms have been achieved on time and budget enabling both proof of concept, fit and application.  Do you have a project where we could provide our cost effective prototyping services.  Get in touch!
