Cutting edge software such as the latest Solidworks 3D software is used by engineers to design and create intricate and detailed digital models.

These models can be tested and revised to ensure that they are viable. Once this process is complete, a prototype can be made for any final tests and adjustments before the full production goes ahead.

State of the art tube laser cutting has made it possible to create ever more complex and detailed shapes from metal without the need for any finishing work by hand. Now that we have the machinery capable of making such pieces from metal, ever more innovative designs can be brought to life.

While experience in engineering will always be invaluable to design and manufacture, it is also essential to embrace the new technologies in order to take manufacture to the next level.
