We have designed and built several injection moulds manufacturing moulded connectors for electrical cable looms and also components for windscreen wiper assemblies and other dashboard components. We have also built many precision jigs and fixtures used within the automotive manufacturing process.
An example of a project completed for a customer in the defence industry involved the design and manufacture of an injection mould used to manufacture military battery parts. Smithstown were chosen for this project due to our expertise in designing and manufacturing moulds and procuring components used for filtration. This component involved two step moulding process including over-moulding of a filter paper which was being fed through the mould by a screen feed. This technology will likely be seen in use in consumer products in the near future.
