Patterson and Rothwell Ltd
Defence and Military Plastics
Supplying Plastics for Military and Defence applications for some 10 years now the company supply many well known industry leaders such as Smiths Detection. As plastic moulders and plastic toolmakers supplying the Military Industry and the Defence Industry P&R can produce 3D designs from their in house design studio using Solid Works in conjunction with leading polymer prediction software Mouldflow. To assist in this process the company utilise a 3D Printer that can quickly produce an ABS model prior to the cutting of any steel for customer assessment. This can be completed in just a matter of hours saving valuable time and resource.
Familiar with many exotic Military and Defence materials like PEEK and LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) P&R can offer its services for the most complex to the most mundane of parts.
Operating from our North Manchester premises our 3 sites include a Clean Facility for highly technical mouldings. Parts can be painted where required; RF Shielding for example is common place. 100% inspection is available by one of four of P&R’s highly qualified QC Inspectors. Specialist packaging can be employed where sensitive or delicate products require that extra degree of protection.
Additional processes include the Sonic Welding of parts and Tampa Printing.
Plastic Injection Moulding
The company formed in 1982 is accredited to TS16949 which is a global automotive standard. Believing no other accreditation to be thorough enough the major automotive producers around the globe produced their own tough exacting standard which few companies in the UK are able to achieve. We are very proud as a company to hold this standard. In addition we have the ISO 9001 and are accredited to BRC (British Retail Consortium). BRC is required where a company wishes to produce store and ship packaging material for the Food Industry a sector that P&R are heavily involved in.
Plastic Moulding and Toolmaking
Working with several leading Universities P&R aim to stay on top of rapidly advancing technologies such as materials and how best to use them. We understand the importence of weight reduction and contantly strive to find material and applications where we can replace metals with specialist plastice wherever possible.
No matter what the size of a project we welcome all enquiries.
