Custom Designs

As the name suggests custom designs are produced to client’s specific requirements taking into account technical issues, space limitations and product application. Our designers work closely with you to produce a solution and provide a price and delivery schedule.

On agreement the design is passed to our purpose built resin cast department where tooling is made for the CTs case and the core is wound. These two main elements are bought together and baked in our ovens to provide a strong and durable finished product complete with
connection terminals and busbar clamps where required.

Many of these custom designs are for three phase application where all three phases can be accommodated in a single cast case.

We welcome any enquiries for this service.
