Conventry / UK - Sarginsons Prototyping Excellence & New Process Development Manager

A project of delivering 13 individual components to support a new Jaguar vehicle launch was successful project managed and delivered by the team. This involved supplying machined and painted components 6 weeks after receiving the finalised customer models, many of the chassis components were also cast with wall sections as thin as 3mm to replicate future pressure die casting requirements.

The team also supplied two cylinder head blocks for a rebuild program of Rolls Royce Phantom 3 prestigious cars. Each cylinder head required 36 individual cold box sand cores which were assembled in the pattern before pouring.

3 separate rotary actuary bodies were also supplied as prototypes which will be machined and pressure tested to exceptionally high pressures.
