As part of BSA Mouldings customer support services we have a product development unit at our Kings Lynn factory.
With a range of prototyping and product development equipment we can provide a comprehensive service to assist our clients move from initial concept to final production.
Three 3D printers, finishing equipment and a rapid moulding cell form part of our on-going investment in this area.
Our product development unit based in our Kings Lynn factory has a range of 3D printing equipment – capable of producing high resolution models in a wide range of materials.

3D printing can perform a useful role in visualizing how a design will perform in reality, both in terms of size/appearance and for some of its mechanical properties.
However, a prototype CNC-machined sample manufactured from a block of plastic can often be more useful – typically a machined sample is stronger and has properties more similar to the finished product – helping to select the exact type of prototype needed (machined, 3D printed, vacuum formed, vacuum cast or rapid tooling) is part of our development service.
A prototype sample can only be produced from 3D design data. Although our customers often bring their own CAD information, BSA offer a complete 3D design service – using our established product development processes we ensure best practice engineering techniques are incorporated into our design service.
We also offer access to our comprehensive part and material library – with real world examples of functional design and material properties as well as an extensive database of reference samples and guides.
We are the UK’s plastic leaders in high-volume, close-tolerance injection moulding of both large and small custom plastic parts and products. We guarantee a high production output rate, low labour costs and a consistently precise tolerance.
