Award-winning toolmakers, Ad-Vance Engineering, recently completed a highly complex production tool for the manufacture of high-volume PPE for the international market.
Double award-winner at the recent Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council 2020 Business Awards for Technical Excellence and Engineering Excellence, Ad-Vance Engineering has again demonstrated how it has successfully collaborated with a leading UK manufacturer to help them achieve their commercial objectives.
Ad-Vance was recently appointed to design and manufacture a highly complex production tool for the manufacture of high-volume PPE for the international market.
With a stretching turnaround of only five weeks, the company received an order to design and manufacture a 24 Drop Hot runner tool. This fully hardened H13 production tool incorporates a Synventive 24 drop 06E-02 thermal gate hot runner system and can produce 96 components every 10 seconds.
Led by Technical Director, Samuel Vance, the companies design office deployed the latest hyperMILL® CAD-S Solid software that integrates 3D and 5-axis milling and turning strategies in a simple user interface.
With the further introduction of 6&7 axis machining capability into their portfolio, Ad-Vance Engineering is now able to significantly reduce cycle times and further increase productivity.
Roger Vance, Managing Director of Ad-Vance Engineering, commented: “We were approached by a leading Tier 1 UK manufacturer because of our reputation for being able to design and deliver top-end technical tooling solutions against the most demanding timelines. Our design and engineering teams have again demonstrated our capacity to pull out all the stops to successfully meet our deadlines.”
