Efficient manufacture starts with optimised component design. We have collaborated with customers to provide cost-effective design for manufacture for over 25 years. We work to translate end-user functional requirements into readily machinable components with ease of assembly built-in, using AS9103 principles if appropriate. This is not always the easiest of processes for customers but is invariably rewarding in the long run!
For designers currently at the product conception stage we recommend our design guide - available upon application – to drive design for low cost manufacture
Alongside our extensive plant list, we have a full suite of CAD-CAM software for precision machining, milling and turning of machined parts.
R E Thompson are able to alleviate design issues in manufacture, thanks to the expertise of our precision engineers and latest CAD-CAM software.
