We offer a comprehensive design solution to our customers. We can produce 3D CAD drawings, engineering drawings or simulations.


In addition to this, we now offer 3D printing services. Unique to us is our ability to print plastic components that are as strong as metals! This gives you a lightweight, cost effective solution with reduced lead times.


see www.pro22innovations.co.uk for more information on design and 3D printing

This emerging technology allows our customers to increase their profitability by decreasing costs and increasing efficiency. If your business hasnt considered 3D Printing as a viable option for your mechanical engineering, please get in touch with us as many of our customers from the UK and Ireland are using our printing facilities.


We can print components as strong as metal! We can take your idea or design and turn it into a real useable product or component. We do this by introducing continuous fibre strands into the plastic matrix which allows for end prints which are suitable for Jigs, Fixtures, end use applications.

Why 3D printing?

Printing your parts allows you to design and manufacture parts with almost total design freedom. Your part can be custom made as well as multiple parts manufactured if required. One of the advantages of printing is that there is a significantly less lead time that other manufacturing methods. Your designs can be produced on demand, easily altered if required, and within a short space of time you will have another part ready to try.
