Product Information

“Custom Engineered Components” is a broad term that generally refers to specialised and tailor-made parts or elements designed for specific applications in various industries. These components are engineered to meet unique requirements, specifications, or challenges that off-the-shelf or standard components may not adequately address. The term can be applied across a wide range of fields, including manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, electronics, and more.

Here are some key aspects and considerations related to custom engineered components:

Tailored Solutions: Custom engineered components are designed and manufactured to fit specific needs or solve particular problems. This can involve factors such as size, shape, material composition, tolerances, and performance characteristics.

Precision Engineering: The design and production of custom components often involve precise engineering to ensure that they meet exact specifications. This may include detailed CAD (Computer-Aided Design) modeling, simulation, and prototyping to achieve the desired outcome.

Materials: Depending on the application, custom components can be made from a variety of materials, including metals, plastics, composites, and specialised alloys. The choice of material is crucial to achieving the desired performance, durability, and other relevant properties.

Manufacturing Processes: Custom engineered components may be produced using various manufacturing processes such as machining, injection moulding, 3D printing, casting, and more. The selection of the manufacturing method depends on the complexity of the component and the desired properties.

Industry Applications: These components find applications in diverse industries. For example, in aerospace, custom engineered components may be critical for lightweight and high-strength requirements. In the medical field, custom components may be designed for specific medical devices. Similarly, in automotive manufacturing, custom components can play a role in enhancing vehicle performance.

Prototyping: Before mass production, it’s common to create prototypes of custom components to test their functionality and suitability. This helps identify and address any issues before full-scale production.

Quality assured since 1981 ISO 9001:2008 Aerospace AS9100C & AS9120AWith ISO9001: 2015 approval incorporating Design Status, our qualified engineering staff are able to offer a completely free of charge engineering service and are available to assist with part selection, custom design, application requirements, material selection and more.

Applications are discussed in-depth, first-off design data and drawings are submitted for approval to ensure our customers are provided with the correct design, first time. However, on those rare occasions when modifications are necessary, our no-tooling process and flexible manufacturing procedures means the production of prototypes is easily and economically achieved without onerous tooling charges and long lead times.

At TFC we realise that Quality runs through the entire business, not just our products. We have continually invested in the right people to provide the superior market knowledge and customer service.

Our supply chain partners, from manufacturers to logistics and information technology are carefully chosen to ÿt our commitment to quality

All products are batch traceable and can be supplied in accordance with REACH, RoHs and Weee.

Certificates of Conformity are available on request and Full material certification is also available on many items.

The utilisation of custom components has the potential to impact your supply chain, given that these components may not be readily accessible from standard suppliers. This is where TFC can play a pivotal role, as we collaborate with manufacturers and suppliers who specialise in the production of custom components. TFC is committed to ensuring the quality of custom-engineered components. Our rigorous quality control processes are meticulously implemented to align with industry standards and meet the expectations of our customers.
