Capabilities

 

Clamason’s precision presswork is underpinned by vast, expert capabilities.

These capabilities enable your project to benefit from continued innovation – which in turn equates to timely, cost-efficient, and quality production.

Design

 

Whether you require a brand-new design or an improvement to an existing component, Clamason’s UK Design Centre in Kingswinford will employ industry-leading CAD software to maximise value and reduce costs.

Clamason’s expert design team will make it their priority to determine the best possible process and materials to support your project. By using innovative simulation software, a final design can be produced based on extensive testing – all without a single piece of material being wasted, or any time spent on fruitless production runs.

In doing so, you can trust Clamason to forecast the feasibility and performance of your project before production starts, enabling both short lead times and excellent results.

Project Management

 

When you work with Clamason, you can be confident that your manufacturing project will be supported by unrivalled customer service. To streamline our services and ensure that you always have access to a single, expert point of contact, every project is underpinned by a dedicated project manager.

Your project manager will be your eyes and ears in our facility, ensuring that your project is completed on time and within budget, while keeping you fully informed along the way.

The result? Lasting relationships built on trust, clarity and excellent results.

Tooling

 

Quality components start with excellent tooling. That’s why we won’t begin the manufacture of your component until we know you have the best tooling available.

All tooling is designed in-house by Clamason experts, using specialist CAD software.  For the manufacturing process, we only work with trusted suppliers of whom we’ve built long-term relationships. This means you’ll always benefit from the most competitive costs and advantageous lead times.

Better yet, Clamason’s UK and Slovakian premises are both equipped with in-house tool shops, so any required modifications, maintenance or spare parts can be managed quickly and efficiently.
