At optima we have over two decades of experience in sourcing materials and processes to enable your product to move from prototype to full realisation. We understand the importance of selecting the right partners to ensure that quality and delivery expectations are met and exceed.
We have built up long-term relationships we partners both in the UK and Far-East and have been involved with manufacturing transition for products utilising machining, fabrication, pressing, low and high volume tooling, rotational moulding, casting and production level rapid prototyping.
We specialise in the supply of fully toolable CAD data, and liaise closely with tooling manufacturers and moulders to ensure that the parts we develop are optimised for wall thickness, draft, tool ejection, shot weight, injection criteria, part consistency and cosmetic finish. We are particularly specialised in the development of family tooled and multi part in-body shared tooling, to reduce part count SKU’s and allow for snap out assembly.
Our partners provide full tooling, mold-flow and part analysis so you can be confident that production parts will meet your functional and aesthetic expectations. We have particular interest in correct material selection, not least in response to environmental concerns and to provide USP’s and product differentiation in increasingly style, and ecologically conscious markets.
Our partners are ISO9001-2008 certified, and have longstanding pedigree of the production of tooling and parts for some of Europe’s most recognised companies and brands.
