Fuel Exhausts produce parts for motorcycle exhausts to specific design requirements.
From forming everything by hand 21 years ago Fuel Exhausts has incrementally invested in digital technology to improve speed and accuracy.
Fuel Exhausts now wants to apply new technologies into its manufacturing to make its processes more efficient, increase profit, and capture a larger market share.
Damian explained: “Our prototyping process can be time-consuming, expensive, inefficient, and carries the risk of occasional human error.
“For instance, we use old school engineering skills to make a prototype by hand, draw it on CAD software and outsource manufacture to a company which uses automated CNC processes. It can then take up to 10 days for that prototype to be shipped to us, and from time to time, the end result can be millimeters out, meaning we have to scrap it and start again.
“It is this waste of time, money, resources and material we want to tackle.”
