Allen Brothers have the capacity to produce thousands of different products, with a huge archive or tooling and designs. Allen has the resources and experience to fulfill the requirements of the marine trade and the discerning sailor, from mass production to custom design.
Design & CAD Modelling
Using the advanced Pro-Engineer CAD software our design team can quickly develop new ideas and design concepts into computer models, which can also be structurally assessed with our Ansys computer simulated stress analysis software (Finite Element Analysis). Prototype plastic models can be seen within hours using our Dimension 3D part printer (max size 200x200x 300mm)
Finished designs are seamlessly progressed through the toolmaking stages using the parametric features of Pro-Engineer tool design and CNC machining software. Our tool-makers can produce single or multi-impression tools for injection moulding, sheet metal pierce and blank tools, secondary operation form tools, assembly jigs and fixtures.
Our factory is equipped to manufacture a diverse range of component parts. We are particularly flexible in the production of short run specialist parts, and low to medium volume production quantities.
CNC injection moulding – all thermoplastics, experts in the use of advanced engineering polymers and composites such as carbon fibre filled acetals and nylons.
CNC turned parts – 5 axis sliding head lathes producing high precision parts in all materials, specialising in stainless steel 316 (max dia. 75mm)
CNC sheet metal forming – pierced and blanked parts, with secondary forming and cutting presses (max size 150x200x6.0mm)
CNC milled parts – all materials (max size 450x350mm)
Aluminium gravity cast parts and products from our own in-house foundry.
Our versatile and skilled workforce can provide fully assembled products, using a range of techniques such as welding, drilling, riveting, threaded fasteners, adhesives, pad-printing and packing.
