Tooling

Following the successful resiting of the business AEO have followed through on its previously stated commitments and integrated into the fabric of the business a fully operational tool-room. Servicing our customers with new tooling solutions whilst also providing a preventative maintenance facility and a continuous improvement base.

We endeavour to provide our customers with a high quality service, working with them from concept to complete production tooling to meet their requirements.Recent investments in a new Sodick CNC wire cut EDM and 2 Haas Vertical machining centre has enhanced our tool-room capabilities. To further expand our facilities we have plans for future investment, which will enable us to take on larger projects to establish AEO as a leading provider of press tools.

We are able to work with customers at the design stage, if required, where we can bring into play our extensive knowledge and experience of tool design.

Welding

Welding Services

AEO have in-house welding facilities, some of which are automated, giving greater control and tracking of finished articles to enable on time deliveries to our customers.

Our workshop is equipped with fully automated MIG, Robot MIG & TIG, Projection, Spot, Rotary Welding systems and Spin Riveters to provide a flexible range of assembly options.

Our Robotic Welders are operated by highly skilled welders who are experienced in programming and the maintenance of the machines.

With our Automated Welding systems we can add extra value to small batch and production volume presswork and can accommodate low to high volume runs to a high quality standard and cost effectively.

We are able to work with customers at the design stage, if required, where we can bring into play our extensive knowledge and experience of tool design.

 

THE ROBOTIC WELDER PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS:

  • Highly accurate – each movement is precisely pre-programmed.

  • Quality welding – the automation of the machine means every move is accurate and identical.

  • Fast production – the Robotic Welder can weld multiple items at any one time.

  • Cost competitive – labour cost savings are achieved by using the machine.

Prototypes

Prototypes

AEO offer our customers a full consultative service aimed at assisting you with the design and development of prototypes, ultimately ensuring a quality component or assembly that is fit for purpose and economical to manufacture.

Our extensive experience in component development has given us great insight into designing components with a view to volume production.We are confident that we can help you develop your prototype as cost effectively as possible while maintaining high quality standards.

Our Engineering team offer:

  • Experience in new product development

  • R&D Assistance in design and development

  • Software developed 3D prototype models

  • Cost effective method as evaluation

  • Alterations can be made before machining

  • Low tooling costs – tools are designed and built in house

We are able to work with customers at the design stage, if required, where we can bring into play our extensive knowledge and experience of tool design.

Presswork

Presswork

AEO has the experience and flexibility to meet the most challenging of projects. The wide diversity of progression, welded and drawn pressings, now up to 630T, is augmented with the consistent repeatability of CNC control, and we provide a wide range of additional operations, including:

  • Automated Welding
  • Precision Machining Processes
  • Surface Preparation
  • Plating & Coating

AEO supply a TOTAL service, capable of handling prototype manufacture, product development and full production volumes in excess of 5 million components per year.

We are happy to advise on any production or component problem and pride ourselves in our ability to offer practical, cost effective solutions. We encourage close working partnerships throughout every project, however large or small, so our customers are always involved in the decision-making process.

Our range of modern presses, some CNC controlled, are ideally suited for the manufacture of high quality small to medium components, flexible utilisation of plant allows larger projects to be accommodated when required.
