BEC Solution

We designed and made the injection mould tool in our in-house toolroom.  Using our specialist upright moulding machines, which are more efficient and more accurate for loading filter pre-forms, to manufacture the specialist filter components.

The component part has a conical nylon mesh which is encapsulated through the plastic injection moulding process.   With an o-ring fitted to each filter as part of the sealing system.  Due to the product requirements all materials comply with WRAS (Water Regulatory Advisory Scheme) Regulations.

As one of our longest running filter customers, Thomas Dudley have been coming to us for over 20 years and we’re proud to enjoy a great supplier relationship which means we can continue to add value where they need it most.   Working with them, we have introduced a stocking process to help reduce their inventory cost and carried out a cost down programme to look at where they could make savings throughout the manufacturing process.

Result

Over 20 years of consistent, reliable and quality filter moulding service.  Moulding over 7 million high-quality, specialist filters in that time.
