Bringing together many years of experience in toolmaking, moulding and product development Liondell works with our clients to design and develop plastic parts and assemblies.
We have industry experience in Automotive, Aerospace, Medical applications, personal care, adhesives and sealants, packaging, and building products, to name a few.
Our emphasis is to design parts which meet the client’s design brief for fit, function and aesthetics.
With our knowledge of plastic and rubber moulding processes, we design parts that are feasible for manufacturing from the start. Using our software tools we can quickly and efficiently design any type of plastic part and will run flow analysis to ensure that feed positions are optimised and to predict potential defects that can be designed out at the initial stages.
We have extensive experience in a broad range of plastic resin types and grades. If we require specialist input, then we would involve material suppliers at an early stage to get independent input regarding material selection.
The design for manufacture (DFM) process that we would typically start with is incorporated into our design process, meaning that when the client signs off the design, we are ready to go to tooling immediately. We are using the latest VISI Cad/Flow and Siemens NX software.
