They say that manufacturing is a social activity and this is never more accurate than at the development stage of a product. We value cooperation and collaboration while working through the various stages of product design and development with our customers and their design professionals.
We welcome early involvement in the design stage so our skills and experience can make the most effective contribution to a successful outcome. Close collaboration at this stage allows us to contribute to decisions regarding:
- material specifications best suited to the product's environment
- design features that will enhance machining, forming or moulding outcomes
- design and production requirements necessary for surface finishing processes such as bead blasting, linishing, painting or anodising
- cost effective batch sizes, assembly processes and packaging.
The best products are achieved through a collaborative approach. You will always find us happy to discuss any aspect of the manufacturing process with you.
Supplying both prototyping and production skills in one business unit is a difficult act but has huge effects on the efficiency and effectiveness of the development cycle if it is done well. Contex has a much envied reputation in prototyping, a reflection of the innovation and skills of our staff and our continual striving to produce the very best engineering products.
