Trial Runs for approval
When new tooling is completed, we arrange for tool trials to be conducted in-house or in local trial shops to prove out the tooling function and moulding process.
Usually Liondell staff are on-site to assist with the trials to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that the clients expectations are met. If trials are conducted independently then we will be given full reports including process parameters so that we can verify and arrange to see a further trial if necessary. If any corrective action is necessary, corrective action (PFU) reports are completed to improve the results at the following trial.
ISIR reports are submitted after every trial. All of our suppliers own or have access to CM Machines and other inspection equipment necessary to produce accurate reports.Read more
Short Prototype batches
Depending on the customer requirements prototype or low volume production parts can potentially be 3D printed, vacuum cast or injection moulded.
We work with Rapid Prototyping companies in the UK and China who are able to assess and advise on most cost-effective methods to produce parts of the correct quality.
Our toolmaking partners will typically be able to mould low-volume production in-house which will be quality checked and managed on a door-to-door basis.Read more
Global Production Sites
With our trusted partners in China and in the UK, we can supply larger batch runs and can put the necessary measures in place to provide just-in-time supply to any global site that clients may request. We have experience of supplying high volume production products to industries such as Automotive and Aerospace. Therefore we understand quality expectations are high and lead-times are strictly adhered to. The tooling we supply is warrantied globally for a set number of cycles (shot-life)
The production partners that we use work with us in a tooling maintenance program that ensures the supply chain is always flowing.
Liondell can also provide bespoke Jigs, Fixtures and Gauges that may be required for the production process.Read more
