Concept through to Point of Sale

#New Product Development

Axiom have been delighted to assist a keen local windsurfer in the development of an innovative, new ‘Board Protector’ which protects the nose of windsurf boards from scuffs and damage from mast and sail impact. 

Axiom were approached with a concept idea for the product which they assisted the customer in taking to an injection mouldable product, this was then 3D printed at various stages of the design to assess the part’s performance.

Once the design was approved, tooling design was finalised and the rapid aluminium tooling was produced on the in-house 5 axis DMU machines.

Axiom produced a short run production of the product on its in-house Negri Bossi 90t  machine in a recycled PC/ABS material and delivered it to the customer fully finalised in its POS (point of sale) packaging.

You can view and buy the product here.

Axiom specialise in assisting customers developing new products. All the in-house skills, machinery and experience of Axiom are ideally suited to converting concept sketches into fully tested and manufactured packaged items. Call the team now to discuss your concept products; 01243 785050.

Axiom PD has been working closely with an exciting start-up business, RAD Propulsion assisting them in the development of a very innovative electric propulsion unit for the marine sector.

The team at Axiom have been lending their expertise to the project in terms of manufacturing prototype pieces of equipment, designing and manufacturing mould tools for the production of the propellers and rim drive unit and producing jigs and fixtures for assembly of the units.

All specialisms and machines within the Axiom facilities have been in use including the design team, the 5 Axis DMG machining centres through to the Negri Bossi Plastic Injection Moulding machines which have produced the pink engine blades.

The manufacturing and engineering expertise within Axiom has enabled the team to assist RAD Propulsion in their new product development by quickly and efficiently manufacturing short-run prototype parts, advising on manufacturing techniques and optimal materials and assisting in bringing the engine from drawing board through to fully functioning test unit all within a 4-week turnaround.
