New business development team -

 

One of my most challenging tasks to date was the design and manufacture of a custom cap for a component which was being used in the aerospace industry. The cap specification was to grip onto the part during transit, to protect the surface. The cap had to be easy to fit, reusable, durable and made in a bright, visible colour.

 

To begin, we looked at various shapes and designs for the cap, even reviewing the possibility of making it a Hexagonal shape to ensure the cap fitted snuggly onto the part. Then we modified our tooling to make the cap slightly longer. Finally we manufactured the cap in a bright yellow PVC.

 

The end product has turned out to be a flying success and the part has now been added to our stock list as a standard part, it is out of this world! To view the part please follow the link below - Hexagonal Caps.
