Rapid prototyping at H T Brigham adds value for customers
The benefits of 3D printing have been widely reported; fast, low-cost and kind to the environment. This rapid prototyping allows working concepts to be ruled in or out more quickly, speeding up the development process and reducing the project lead time as a whole.
Celebrating 70 Years of Presswork Success
Birmingham metal pressing manufacturer, H T Brigham celebrates 70 years in business this year. The company was established in 1947 by Hugh Terrence Brigham who, with just £80 start-up capital, operated a single hand-press from a garage shed in Birmingham, delivering components locally using his motorcycle and sidecar. He was paid £9 9s 8d on the completion of his first order.
With long-standing relationships throughout the global automotive market, H T Brigham is the ideal source for cost effective metal stampings, providing the best result for any viable automotive component. Focusing on zero defect supply, we can fulfil the exacting demands of the automotive sector. Using advanced automation under rigorously controlled conditions, we produce high volume metal pressings for worldwide automotive contracts, delivering the right solution, no matter how complex the challenge.
Metal pressings are a popular choice for the automotive industry due to their low weight, high strength characteristics. In fact, H T Brigham’s engineers are experienced in assisting automotive customers in reverse engineering existing component designs, in order to create a more viable and cost effective end product.
Our metal pressings provide levels of accuracy that rival those of precision machining; however greater speed and minimal waste during the manufacturing process, results in lower component costs in comparison to alternative production methods.
Greater speed and minimal waste
