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.
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.
This customer required a light guard protector for ceiling lights; the Axiom team understood the requirements and designed and machined this mould tool to produce the final product using our in-house state-of-the-art DMG DMU 50 3rd generation CNC machine.
The rapidly designed and manufactured mould tool enables the final moulded light guard protector to be produced with accuracy and quality.

This is a recent example of an injection mould tool that was designed in-house by Axiom Product Development designers. The tool was then machined using our DMG DMU 50 3rd generation and Haas VF4 CNC machining centres out of P20 steel. Find out more about our engineering and design capabilities here.
The requirement from our customer was for a precision tool to mould TPU grommets. The job was completed on-time by out team of highly experienced designers and machinists.
