Toolmaking

Helmet Integrated Systems wanted to manufacture an injection moulding tool to test a new design of visor and a range of new materials, having previously used draped sheet for this component. 

Through this project TQ gained an extensive knowledge base relating to the specialist design and manufacture of tools for optical components.
