Design for Manufacture

Design for Manufacture

Marrill design for manufacture, ensuring the customer has a robust, efficient and cost effective solution. Using the latest CAD technology and simulation software, Marrill simulate the four major design concerns (binder wrap, draw die, spring back and multiple stage tooling). This greatly reduces the try out time and risks of a faulty first time tool build.

Tool manufacture

Marrill’s team of 20 highly skilled machinist and tool makers ensure that tools are made on time and to an exceptional quality. Marrill have 50 years experience of building tools from the current Coventry facility, including progression, tandem, transfer, deep draw.

We have tryout presses of up to 1600 tons and a superb inspection facility where panels and other components are fully tested to ensure that the end result is perfect.

Unit testing is ongoing as the component moves into production and the process is part of our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement and quality assurance.

A turnkey approach

Our investment into state-of-the-art CAD/CAM systems and CNC machines means that we can move seamlessly, from design and prototyping to tool tryout, all within the same facility. This has substantial cost benefits. This means that we can monitor and refine the progress of each component without having to outsource any resources.
