RAD Propulsion prototype unit | Axiom

Axiom team assist in new product development

Axiom PD has been working closely with an exciting start-up business, RAD Propulsion, assisting them in developing 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 the 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 the drawing board through to fully functioning test unit all within a 4-week turnaround.
