Portfolio / Batch Production
With full capabilities for low volume batch production and assembly, IDC Models were selected to produce all of the front grilles, air intakes and bonnet mechanisms for the Aston Martin Virage Volante. IDC Models coordinated with Aston Martin’s engineering team who produced three prototypes, which were launched at the UK international motor show. IDC provided production parts to Aston Martin and continues to support them with spares.
As a long running client of IDC Models, Dynamic Extractions have used our batch production facilities. IDC’s Design Engineers took Dynamic Extractions’ prototype technology and used its product development expertise to design a series of cases which house, drive and control Dynamic Extractions’ High Performance Countercurrent Chromatography (HPCCC) technology. IDC and IDC Models manufactured low volume production runs for three sizes of the cartridge.
IDC’s Industrial designers designed a new lodge and tray for ExoSect’s patented electrostatic powder. IDC Model’s flexible workshop and production facilities allowed us to manufacture the necessary components order as well as assemble machinery for the full production of 3000 ExoSect Moth Lodges. IDC Model’s will always try to accommodate any needs where batch production is concerned.
The Series 8 ’ActiveCool’ is an automated closed cup flash point tester with a temperature range of -20 to 130°C. The covers and the enclosures were designed and engineered by IDC. The IDC Models team was instrumental in making the first prototype and manufactured a vacuum cast, which allowed the base, and top covers for the production unit to be moulded thus avoiding the cost of injection moulding tooling.
IDC completed the industrial design and detailed engineering on the entire ice cream dispensing machine, covers, internal structure, electro-mechanical and electronic elements. A variety of tools, patterns and assembly jigs for the dispenser were made and a prototype unit was built, tested and approved. A further 40 units were made and assembled by IDC Models.
