Developing bespoke solutions to overcome production issues

As a specialist in Marine defence, precision and attention to detail are at the heart of their manufacturing operations.

Recently the customer discovered sparks from traditional grinders were causing damage to the bodywork of vessels, resulting in costly damage. The challenge given to Abbey was to design, test and fit a modification to the guard which would help to mitigate this issue.

The bespoke part was developed in conjunction with the clients’ operatives and engineering department, so it complied with all relevant health and safety standards, including HAVs.  The new cowl successfully captures sparks and prevents damage to the vessel in production, and thus mitigates costly damage and fines.

At Abbey Industrial Solutions, we like to work closely with our customers to understand production processes, identify issues and recommend solutions to optimise manufacturing. Our services go further to provide a tailored level of solutions to your tooling needs.
