190mph sports car parts manufactured by D & H Engineering
Every so often a particularly interesting project comes along Ö the latest is the manufacture of a machined piece of stainless steel that forms part of a complex fuel pump and heat exchange unit in a 190 mph sports car.
Now we canít reveal what the car is but suffice to say it produces 430 horespower and will go from 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds, with those performance figures our part needs to work very well indeed.
The complexity of the engineering involved has been very interesting due to the thin wall needed for the heat exchange unit to function correctly Ė too thick and it wonít work with any degree of efficiency, too thin and the wall will buckle and fail Ö and thatís the last thing thatís needed at 190 mph.
Fortunately, the automobile company understand that D & H Engineering has the expertise and capability to enable us to produce the required number of parts at the right price, on time and to the right tollerences every single time Ė allowing them to deliver high powered, high speed sports cars to a very discerning market place with complete peace of mind.
LEAN Manufacturing - Demontfort University, Knowledge Transfer Partnership and D & H Engineering Team Up
As youíll probably know, the aim of LEAN manufacturing is to, essentially, compress time. By reducing leadtime for example, productivity can be increased and costs reduced, often very dramatically.
D & H Engineering have been working with some very clever people from Demontfort University in Leicester and the Knowledge Transfer Partnership to help us streamline processes, not just in the area of manufacturing but across the board including administration and co-ordination roles.
The end game is to enable D & H Engineering to be able to reduce wastage, increase efficiencies, reduce costs, increase competitiveness and overall provide a valued and highly competitively priced manufacturing service for organisations globally. From our plants in the UK, Poland and India our clients will be able to get exactly what they need, when they need it and at the right price.
