Design

Solving problems

Every spring or wire part produced by William Hughes is custom-made to suit a particular application.  Customers involve us at an early stage in each and every wire-based project so that problems of space, performance, material and cost can be addressed at the outset of the design process.

Our design and application engineers enjoy state-of-the-art facilities for the in-house design of products and machine tools.

Modern materials and new technologies have impacted on traditional product development but William Hughes basic philosophy of bringing a product to market in the most cost-effective and timely way remains the same.

Such techniques as simultaneous engineering are regularly employed and the involvement of our engineering team at an early stage will lead to economies of production and handling.

Rapid prototyping

The ability to accomplish fast, in-touch, prototyping allows for early functional testing and speedy progress to full-scale production.
