Design

We offer inhouse design facilities where required. Our large spacious design office is home to four experienced CAD designers supported by the latest technology.

For CNC Laser Cutting we use Lantek which is a CAD / CAM system specially designed to automate the programming of sheet metal cutting machines. One of the key benefits of this system is that all the options are fully integrated in a single program, so designing a part, importing, nesting (automatic or manual), generating the cut (automatic or manual), generating the CNC, looking at the sheet metal store, etc. is all achieved from the same program without switching between programs. Once designed we can then send CAM programs directly to the CNC laser cutter. We often work very closely with designers to ensure products become viable for large scale, efficient manufacture.

The LVD Cadman B-3D software allows us to import customer's 3D solidworks assemblies to explode, flatten, develop and automatically create the cnc program which is then sent direct to the press brake machine for bending.

Programming for the CNC punch, laser cutter and brake press is carried out off line using bespoke machine software which is sent directly to the machines by network connection.

We are always happy to get involved with complete design and interpretation, working to customer concepts, including sketches and paper drawings.
