Archer Woodnutt Ltd
New Product Design & Rapid Prototyping Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire

Design & Prototyping

In-house One Stop Solution, From Design & Prototype to Full Manufacture & Delivery.

We realise the importance of new products and designs to the future of our business and have invested in this area both in terms of equipment and a customer focused team.  This means that rapid prototyping can be achieved in as little as 48 hours, depending on the complexity of the item.

Our design to manufacturing process utilises a network of RADAN 2011 R1 CAD/CAM terminals.  These provide total flexibility at all stages of design and front end tooling.

Our design service has the flexibility to match your requirements.  We can work from most computer design files and native formats.  We can also take hard copy drawings or finished items from which we can create engineering drawings.  We can even reverse engineer components from a customer sample by scanning it using a QC Laser scanner and producing engineering drawings.

Our design team works closely with customers to ensure that both sides fully understand the requirements.  We will produce rapid prototypes for approval by the customer.  Customers are kept informed of progress right through to sign off.

In order to reduce any delays between design agreement and price and scheduling quotations we have installed the latest RADAN e2i estimating software.  This is a management system designed to maximise efficiency through the whole production process from enquiry to delivery.

Over the years we have invested heavily in the latest Amada CNC forming, punching, profiling and associated technology ensuring maximum productivity and cost saving advantages. Our coating lines have also seen significant investment. For more information on our capabilities, please do get in touch.

Archer Woodnutt are committed to the highest standards of quality and have in place rigorous quality control procedures. Great care is taken throughout all stages of manufacture to ensure only the very best quality fabricated parts are delivered.
