When industrial torque tool specialist Gedore Torque required a high-quality injection-moulded product at short notice, they turned to WSM INDUSTRIES for a custom-designed solution.

Gedore was in the process of launching a new premium torque testing device and had planned to 3D print the main housing. However, during initial product testing it became clear that 3D printing the housing would not deliver the quality and consistency required to meet Gedore’s high product standards.

Needing an alternative solution, Gedore’s R&D team approached Operations Manager Gavin Bridger for support.

Having considerable experience working within the plastics sector, Mr Bridger had collaborated with WSM for tool making, injection moulding and parts assembly services over a number of years and didn’t hesitate to call on them for help.

“I worked with WSM for a number of years in my previous role and when a challenge arose in my new role there was only one company I knew I could reach out to.”

A tight deadline meant that time was of the essence, so within 24 hours of Mr Bridger’s call, a WSM representative visited site to assess the project before taking Gedore’s drawings away to work on a solution.

Working in partnership with Gedore’s R&D team and communicating throughout the process, WSM created a bespoke injection mould tool to the precise specification, ensuring that the torque testing device housing could be produced to the same exceptional standard time and again.

Mr Bridger was delighted with WSM’s cost-effective solution and dedicated service: “WSM communicated consistently through the whole project, delivering the product on time to a very high quality. The team at Gedore were extremely impressed and we will be using WSM for our future plastic projects.”
