Showing how tapering can play a role in stylish and contemporary product design, we have recently produced tapered tubes for light fittings manufactured by the lighting company, Tyson Lighting.
Established in 1961, Tyson Lighting manufactures all of their products in Britain and are purveyors of bespoke decorative contract lighting. Providing lighting solutions for all kinds of applications including work spaces, High Street stores, bars and restaurants, care homes and hotels, the company have previously produced innovative lighting designs for clients such as Pizza Hut in the Trafford Centre Manchester, the Gresham London Showroom, plus various KFC and Chilli Banana restaurants.
For Tyson Lighting, we produced a stainless steel tube with a 75mm diameter taper to 40mm over 900mm. Into these tubes, Tyson have added their innovative light fittings to create a spectacular example of contemporary lighting.
At Techniswage, we are delighted to have worked with Tyson Lighting, who have been championing British craftsmanship for over 50 years from their base in Lancashire.
Having been approached by BAE Systems to help on improving an existing design of lightening conductor guarding the carbon fibre radar dome for the fleet of Type 45’s.
Techniswage were able to fulfil their requirement through their subcontractor Lola. The brief was to reduce the diameter of a stainless steel tube in a stepped form to a smaller diameter over 2 metres in order to throw off vortexes created when the air circulated around the straight (non tapered) existing lightening conductor poles. The process was successful and all seven Destroyers were fitted out with the new system within the short window of 5 weeks whilst in dock.
The Birmingham Post (Graeme Brown, Regional Business Editor - 30.04.13) reported on the success of Techniswage in their Business pages.
Techniswage have seen a 30% increase in revenue since helping to make the stainless steel tubes that formed the famous Olympic cauldron centrepiece.
Techniswage have invested £100,000 in new equipment as a result of the increase in orders, including production for GKN Driveline of the new Maserati variant's prop shafts. Click here to read full article.
