Cygnus – Technical Moulding


Cygnus DIVE

Quote

BEC has delivered a ground-breaking new product enabling us to win significant new business and I couldn’t be more impressed.  They have proven to be true experts in their field and are an example of British manufacturing at its best.  Given the complexity of the product, several adaptations had to be made to the brief and the mould tool; the team adapted accordingly.  They offered us technical design expertise throughout the process working closely with our engineer to innovate further.  With all their facilities in-house we were able to keep a close eye on the costs and timings.  They pushed themselves and demonstrated their complete commitment to the project.

The Brief

After years of research Cygnus designed the world’s first wrist-mounted thickness gauge. Branded the Cygnus DIVE, Cygnus approached us to make a wrist- mounted product with a number of criteria:

  • Be fully functional in 300m (984ft) of continuous immersion in sea water
  • House specialist technology and electrical components
  • Have a large 2.4″ colour screen
  • Be no more than 105 mm x 110 mm x 35 mm

The Solution

The Cygnus DIVE is on the market, on time and within budget. The project stretched us all but this demonstrated the capabilities of everyone involved. Congratulations Cygnus on a truly innovative product!
