Dyson Washing Machine
The Dyson prototype washing machine, fronted by a colourful array of plastic mouldings, was developed under extremely tight confidentiality arrangements. Malcolm Nicholls Limited (MNL) prototyped many of these mouldings, the outer door being one.
The door is a water-clear component. In order to achieve the necessary clarity the stereolithography (SLA) model had to be sprayed to a high gloss finish prior to producing the silicon tooling from it. MNL’s highly skilled craftsmen accomplished this high standard of finish in only a few days.
The subsequent polyurethane mouldings produced from the silicon tools were crystal clear, bubble and flow-mark-free mouldings.
MNL’s constant strive for consistent quality, ensured that our client was always able to rely on MNL.
