We work with you by bringing together a team of experts to evaluate, plan and troubleshoot before any significant investment in design and tooling is made. With over 60 years of experience in all aspects of moulding, we tackle every project in two distinct phases:
We refine product design to engineer out any issues that will compromise or complicate the moulding process. This is supported by CAD facilities, generating 3D models for dimensional, fit and even stress checks. If needed, we can create physical models. BSA works with customers to develop creative design solutions to product or manufacturing issues.
Tooling is as much an art as it is a science. We work closely with a number of selected toolmakers worldwide, in the UK whenever possible, using our comprehensively detailed tooling specifications. This combination ensures you have the right tool, at the right time, with the right long term results.
BSA has lead the way in in-mould decoration, and we continue to develop and evolve this technical skill. We produce a completed product, directly off the moulding machine, to your design requirements, with no post-moulding label application or printing. When traditional finishing techniques are needed, such as self-adhesive labelling, silk-screen printing, tampo printing, or the application of hot-foil blocking, BSA provides the capability and the expertise.
BSA has over 60 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of retail display solutions and tool development. We offer partnership in design and manufacture and we can decorate and assemble your PoP display, as well as packaging, warehousing and distribution.
There are products which cannot benefit from this technology – where the product demands specified materials. BSA moulds across the spectrum – from standard polypropylenes to long glass-fibre nylon, from polystyrenes to ABS, acetal and polycarbonate. Whatever the application, we work with our customers to the best material solution, in cost and performance.
We constantly re-invest in new equipment. Each plastic injection machine is of the latest CNC controlled design, complete with robot automation. We have the capacity to injection mould your product, whether it is 2mm sq and weighs 5 grams or 1.2 metre sq and weighs 10.5 kg.
