Specialist Defence

With over $1.5 trillion spent on defence budgets globally, countries rely on ever more sophisticated equipment to safeguard our daily lives.

Parts supplied to the defence industry are subject to the most critical of quality requirements. Often with extreme operating conditions, technical mouldings need to meet exacting requirements both in terms of material properties and precision.

Supported by the aerospace As9100 quality standard, ENL have perfected over 50 years the manufacturing processes required to meet these exacting requirements. And as result, ENL is a partner of choice to some of the world’s most respected defence companies.

Our service

Our service covers the complete design for manufacture process. Using modern software tools such as SolidWorks and CATIA, we optimise parts and tools to meet the exacting precision required for defence.

We have strong experience in manufacturing aerospace grade parts from high performance polymers such as Ultem, PEEK and Torlon. This capability is matched with in-house tool manufacturing that ensures tools are precisely matched to part design and material to maintain the highest level of precision.

ENL can mould from 10 – 830 tonnes capacity and up to a 4,000 grams shot.  With both horizontal and vertical split-feed or conventional, we have the capacity to mould and overmould a huge range of aerospace parts. Post-operations such as CNC machining, ultrasonic welding, printing and kitting are managed completely in-house, therefore ensuring a consistently high-level of quality.
