3D Printed Core-Sample Drills
Completed December 2021
After a customer came to us with an open-source file for a drill, we modelled and adapted the design to best suit our client's needs. Once the design was fit for purpose, we printed the plastic components, machined the alignment tube and drive spigot, hardened the stainless cutter teeth, and assembled the drill.

INJECTION MOLDED PARTS FOR UAV MANUFACTURE
Completed September 20, 2016
Looking to create a more cost-efficient way of producing bushings and washers of varying sizes for UAV's, Afaridan Plastics created the drawings, models and tools needed for mass production. All the designing, tool manufacturing and production was done in-house.
CORE TRAYS FOR THE MINING SECTOR
Completed February 20, 2013
Looking for a design that would incorporate the benefits of both metal and plastic trays, Afaridan Plastics innovated a hybrid core sample tray that included the durability of metal trays and nestability of plastic trays. A combination of CAD design, sheet metal forming and vacuum forming delivered a breakthrough storage solution.
CONNECTOR FOR BRICK KILN
Completed January 25, 2010
After their original connector continued to break and require replacing each year, a brick making company sought the help of Afaridan Plastics to analyse the problem with the current connector and suggest improvements. Since manufacturing a new design, the company has never had to replace any more connectors - improving safety and process efficiency.
