Precision Mouldings are required in the drums to support the brushes and for spacers in the plugs that fit the ends of the cables used when plugging up a menu.

The moulding machine above was used for both items. The mould, below, having been made using precision spark eroding machinery. The material, in this case, comes in pellet form which we dry in an oven before use. The pellets are fed into the machine where they melt. This material now in stiff liquid form is forced into the mould where it quickly cools and solidifies.
