For this week’s Fun Fact Fact, we turn to Nokia. Now known as a world-famous mobile phone maker, Nokia’s roots started out in something quite different. Any ideas?
They were originally founded as a pulp mill and famous for selling toilet paper. Fast forward 150 years and the company has operated in various industries along the way. We too work with a wide range of industries. We like the variation and challenges this brings. Have a look at our website for a little insight into some of the industries we work with. Please get in touch to see how we help to deliver your next project.
To ensure we provide the best and most effective service possible, technology is vital to us. As demonstrated with SolidWorks again this week. Combined with over 40 years of experience, Solidworks provides an outstanding level of accuracy for designs. See for yourself by clicking here! Most recently, SolidWorks is helping us to figure out the requirements for packaging. With our client and items for packaging in Yorkshire, it’s been a really handy tool to figure out what’s needed when it’s not to hand. The client is also happy as we’re finding cost-effective solutions by experimenting with the dimensions to keep the costs down and reduce waste packaging.
Our 3D printer is also in action, creating these ‘Benchys’. They may look like nice little boats, but there is more to them than meets the eye. These are a known test for the 3D printer. The design has geometric features like portholes to challenge the printer. As you can see our printer and software has passed. With layers correct, the printing is spot on. It’s a great way to print parts for anything from design evaluation through to low volume production. We always welcome a conversation so please get in touch to see how you could benefit from our 3D printing service.
