DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
SINGLE COMPONENT TO COMPLEX ASSEMBLY
Here at AES our engineer and design specialists will work with you from any stage of the design process - be it realisation of the very first idea or first design concept - right up to the final stages of full-blown product development.
Most importantly, all designs are constantly checked over by our chief engineer to ensure they are actually fit for purpose from a practical and engineering perspective.
This avoids situations where a lot of work goes into the design stage but the finished product just doesn't fulfil the desired purpose!
3D PRINTING APPLICATIONS
3D printing has long been used to quickly create prototypes for visual aids, assembly mock-ups and presentation models.
Fuel efficiency and emissions reductions are driving the need for lightweight parts via 3D printing in aerospace and automotive applications.
TOOLING, JIGS AND FEATURES
3D printed composite tooling and machining fixtures are often cheaper and faster to produce and conformally cooled inserts for injection moulds can dramatically reduce cycle times.
CUSTOM MEDICAL IMPLANTS
To achieve osseointegration, manufacturers are using 3D printing to precisely control surface porosity to better mimic real bone structure.
METAL CASTING PATTERNS
Combining 3D printing with metal casting bridges the gap between generatively designed parts and proven manufacturing approaches for large metal objects.
3D printing removes many of the constraints imposed by traditional manufacturing processes that prevent engineers from truly designing for optimal performance.
