Filtration helps reduce diesel emissions

With an eye on facilitating our customer’s need to meet diesel emission regulations, we have become one of the UK’s leading experts on filter encapsulation. Our 40 years’ experience in filter manufacture has helped modern diesel engines meet the required emission standards and we’re proud to consistently offer this expertise and flexibility across many industry sectors. Encapsulating filters of quite literally all shapes and sizes for global brands in multiple sectors, primarily automotive. Often termed ‘guardian angels’, filters act like a safety net, protecting valuable components, whilst helping to ensure the reliability and continued smooth running of everyday machinery.  Improved efficiency in filtration media means that dust retention capacity has improved dramatically, and the filter housing design required to house them has improved to be able to close gaps to micron levels. Where there’s fluid or air moving through closely-positioned … Continue reading

Investing in the future of UK manufacturing

With increased demand for our plastic injection moulding services, the time has never been better to invest in the latest manufacturing technology. That’s why our highly skilled production team have welcomed the addition of the latest in the series of BOY insert moulding machines. Allowing BEC to continue to take on the most complex and innovative plastic injection overmoulding and filter encapsulation orders.

40 YEARS OF INNOVATION AND FLEXIBILITY

We’re thrilled to be celebrating our 40th anniversary this year and have been taking a look back at how far BEC has come since 1978. Apart from the pop charts, where Rod Stewart was asking ‘do ya think I’m sexy?’ 1978 brought the advent of the fertility revolution with the birth of the world’s first IVF baby.  In the same year three engineers, visionaries (and musketeers!), Graham Blake, Geoff Elvy and Barry Cox got together and decided that by combining design, tooling and production under one roof they could offer a set of services that would complement one another so customers would get better, more efficient manufacturing results on home turf. BEC have been servicing a wide range of sectors ever since, expanding year on year due to client demand with investment in great staff, state of the art technology … Continue reading

THE REALITY OF COST CUTTING

If something’s cheap, there’s probably a reason for it. Whether you’ve invented a new product, have a small batch or large production run, you’ll have invested your time and energy into the concept and getting the right tooling and manufacturing suppliers are key to your product’s market success. Here at BEC we offer inventors and product manufacturers a fresh approach, by working alongside them, and often third-party design teams, to conceptualise and modify design, run off prototypes, sample batches, tooling and plastic injection moulding, all from under one roof. However, we see all too often customers coming unstuck because they’ve taken an opportunity to cut costs and move their tooling and production overseas. Guru Systems is a prime example.  They manage consumers energy networks via an LED display box.  Guru had engaged a tooling manufacturer in China.  However, substandard materials, … Continue reading
