With the release of the NEW Design Journal and the update of our Case Studies section, we are delighted to share with you some of our latest and perhaps most technical moulding work from 2019.
Working closely with our client, we were able to take the MCM100 ReBreather unit from a lab-based product prototype to something that could be consistently manufactured and produced for real-world use.
This five-part assembled unit comprised of a 3-part breathing loop, outer casings to protect the internal workings, and rubber overmouldings. Each of these parts had very specific requirements deviating from the norm in some ways. Whether it was the low magnetic signature requirement, the no-paint elements, or the varied tolerances, we faced each challenge head-on.
Our RIM moulding process was certainly pushed during this process from start to finish, but we managed to successfully and consistently meet all requirements demanded by the product. With even more experience and confidence gained with producing such challenging parts, we will continue to push what RIM moulding can achieve in the future.
Working on life-enhancing and life-saving devices is something we relish and makes the tough days so much more rewarding and there is none more so then clearing mines to keep the waters safe.
