Prototype tooling and low volume manufacturing are key areas of engineering where the Phoenix team have a long-standing and proven track record of delivering fast turnaround solutions. With its fully equipped in-house facilities, Phoenix can efficiently keep lead-times to a minimum. As all processes from 3D design, CNC manufacture, CNC laser cutting, pressing capacity up to 300 ton and the latest laser scanning are all situated on-site, each project can be controlled more effectively as the risk of relying on sub-contact processes is removed.
Phoenix have completed countless low volume projects, where soft tooling has been manufactured, laser cuts produced and parts formed. Typical prototype volumes have ranged from 50 to over 10,000 parts produced and supplied in accordance with the customer’s strict time-line.
In many cases Phoenix has received production tooling orders with the additional requirement of supplying “off form stage” prototypes prior to full tool completion. This useful service can be managed in parallel with full tool manufacture to ensure the customer receives both pre-build prototypes and full production tooling within the agreed time scales.
