Bowtech Products Ltd is delighted with the success of its new Subsea Moulding Facility in Aberdeen. In a professionally adapted, 2,500ft² building, on the Kirkhill Industrial Estate, Bowtech have invested in the right people and equipment to supply the right product on time.
Bowtech Products represent Seacon® Europe for the complete range of underwater electrical and optical connectors and it was a natural progression to be able to offer the complete cable and connector assemblies here in Aberdeen.
The right people
Manager Stuart Rowley has used his previous experience in both machining and the rubber and plastics industry to set-up the facility. One year on from its conception, he now has a team of 4 staff.
The right equipment
The Vertical Machining Centre for mould tool manufacture allows fast turn around, from design to creation of the most complex moulds required in an ever demanding market.
Polyurethane can be moulded to almost any substrate or cable jacket material offering systems that are required for many varied shallow and deep water applications. The injected polyurethane moulding system produces extremely high quality moulds in comparison to open cast moulding systems.
Mould tools are designed in-house using 3D CAD systems to produce technical and assembly drawings to customer requirements.
Bowtech are producing high quality mouldings in-house for all our own products and can also offer swift turnaround on external special orders requiring custom-manufactured moulds.
This month we have also taken delivery of a new £100,000 computer controlled Lathe to manufacture all our camera, lamp and strobe housings. Located alongside the Subsea Moulding Facility, this will allow Bowtech to better control our production lead times. Improving delivery and quality thus giving us a leading advantage in supplying cameras, lights and strobes.
Bowtech Products Ltd is an ISO 9001:2008 approved company.
