machine design enhancementsNT Precision is a precision engineering company that offers a design enhancement service. We take existing and sometimes very old machines and equipment, and improve them with either total or partial refurbishment to bring them up to date. In many cases our design enhancements introduce the latest technology to make machines run more efficiently.

Our specialist precision engineering designers can take your existing equipment and ‘design in’ improvements that may improve product quality, machine reliability, cycle time reduction, replacement of obsolete components, Poki-Yoki principles to ensure components are assembled correctly, imperial components replaced with ready available metric, new product introduction or product improvements. Precision engineered design enhancements are cost effective.

It is generally more cost effective to retool an existing machine or use part of an existing machine as it allows continued use of existing technology that works well. Our precision engineering skills help us provide design enhancements for a range of client machines.

Process jigs and assembly fixtures often require special attention to ensure they remain operator friendly. At the same time, it is also important to provide sufficient Poka-Yoka to ensure the complex components machine design enhancementsare assembled with all the necessary parts in the correct position. NT Precision has many years experience of working with major Japanese automotive supplies that require this way of thinking.

All the engineering design and manufacture is carried out in house by our highly skilled workforce allowing for close control over the project and ensuring that NT Precision delivers what the customer needs, on time and in the most cost effective way.

If you are considering updating, upgrading, retooling or replacing equipment, then NT Precision can supply the specialist design enhancements and precision engineering skills and support you need. If you need a new machine and your current one is no longer manufactured, we have the engineering ability and facilities to take your existing machine and provide full working drawings to manufacture a completely new, improved machine at our works in Cumbria.
