Client: Aston Martin
Project: Reverse engineering
Many customers have product or components no longer available for a variety of reasons. Bray can take these components and duplicate them either on a one off basis or volume production.
Bray Plastics were asked to reverse engineer an existing production forming by a prestige car manufacturer.
To reproduce production tooling from the original mould accounting for material shrinkage.
Bray reproduced section tooling which was reassembled taking shrinkage into account.
Orders were placed by Aston Martin for a specific custom application.
New tooling was manufactured from the original mouldings taking into account distortion and shrinkage.
The final forms were produced from fire retardant ABS.
