Techniswage have had an association with WAFT Sports for over 6 years producing on an annual basis aluminium rounders bats in various colours for schools and colleges around the UK.
Manufactured complete, the bats are produced from aerospace quality aluminium tube swaged down in diameter to form the handle. Anodised in up to 6 different colours, rubber end bung and handles are then glued and fitted.
The finished bats can then personalised through etching. Some of which have been supplied to the National team in competitions.
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.
