Axiom Product Development take delivery of two brand new DMG 5 Axis Machines

Axiom Product Development, the Chichester based machining, tooling and plastic injection moulding business has taken delivery of two new DMG DMU 5 Axis machines to further increase the capacity of this multi-skilled engineering business.

The DMU 50 3rd Generation machines, with swivelling rotary tables, allow for full 5 axis simultaneous machining and can machine intricate components from solid materials enabling the company to produce complex jigs, fixtures and manufacturing aids for a wide breadth of customers from automotive, defence, aerospace, Formula 1, marine and general manufacturing.

The company has invested in the new machines in response to both the high demand from its customers for quality produced and engineered parts and the increasing number of business coming from new customers in new engineering sectors.

The team at Axiom has many decades of design and engineering experience and a proven history of assisting its customers to successfully develop and manufacture their products.  The company operates in markets that require fast turnaround and these new DMG machines offer the latest technology to ensure a fast engineering response time of the highest quality.

Commenting on the new investment, Alan Rendle-Eames, Managing Director said, “The purchase of these two new 5 Axis Machining Centres will offer high-tech machining capability with rapid response times for providing high-quality, engineered components across a broad range of sectors. Our highly experienced and skilled design and machining team are providing complex manufacturing solutions to a growing number of advanced manufacturing partners and the addition of these new machines will enable us to expand this service even further.”

Axiom deliver engineering design solution for top brand mountain bike

It’s well known that water and electrics don’t mix which is why water, dirt and stones can cause undue problems to the electrics now commonly seen on the latest generation of mountain bikes. This problem led to the full range of skills and experience at Axiom Product Development being called upon to design and manufacture a workable solution for MTB accessories company SicoMTB Products for a particular bike model.

Traditional mudguards do not work with the changing geometry of the rear suspension, this means that they can only be mounted in one area so reducing the ability to deflect water, grit and stones! SicoMTB Products approached Axiom Product Development to take a fresh look at the problem and challenges and come up with a clever new mudguard design.

The highly experienced design, engineering and machining team at Axiom went back to basics to design a dual function mud guard which could both act as a traditional mudguard and in addition divert the water and muck specifically away from the electric motor housing. Throw in a few more complications like lack of space and a highly complex solution was required.

Axiom Product Development design two piece MTB mudguard

The in-house design team at Chichester based Axiom Product Development initially 3D scanned the bike to precisely replicate the geometry of the bike and enable them to simulate the suspension travel when riding on rough terrain. The design team then designed a shape to fit the space, with some clever design features which addressed the various problems. A 3d printed prototype was produced for thorough testing and final design adjustments before the highly skilled machining team at Axiom were brought in. They CNC machined the initial prototype tooling using epoxy blocks on one of the in-house 3 axis machines. The team then worked with a vacuum forming specialist to produce the final, 2 piece, innovative mudguard solution, the DualGuard.

Alan Rendle-Eames, Managing Director added, “This is exactly the type of engineering challenge that our business excels at. Our highly experienced CAD design team are able to come up with design solutions that our machining specialists are quickly able to turn into reality and fine tune with the design engineers to produce quick and technically complex solutions. We have all the skills, experience and high-tech machines on site to be able to produce high quality, technically advanced engineered products such as this complex mud-guard.“
