At Crossen Engineering, we offer a 'single-source solution', meaning all production from design, tooling and production is conducted all under one roof. Offering considerable time saving and project management efficiency.
Differentiated from production tooling, prototyping tooling is made from a softer material and has a shorter lifespan. However, the benefit of aluminium prototyping tooling is that it offers entry-level cost, projects are more scalable in project management and costs, whilst still sufficient enough to produce 20,000-30,000 components.
A breakdown of our tooling opinions include:
Single or Multi Cavity tools
Sliding and hydraulic cores
Cavities up to 800mm x 800mm x 600mm
Hot runner feed systems
Steel cavities / features
Threads (internal and external)
Finishes (texturing, graining, polishes)
EDM - Spark Erosion to achieve precise and intricate detail
Hurling is one of the fastest field games in the world, played with a stick made from ash and hard leather coated ball. The helmet is required to protect players from striking with stick or the ball, struck at speeds of 100mph.
Here at Crossen engineering we worked closely with the design team from O’Neills. We provided the initial design and manufacturing expertise and we had significant input on the materials, construction and manufacture of the product.
