Nicholsons Sealing Technologies Ltd are global specialists in the design and manufacture of resilient metal seals, gaskets and ancillary components. Our diverse range of precision metal sealing solutions accommodates extreme compression, temperature and pressure. Nicholsons deliver a complete engineering service from design and prototype manufacture to full volume production of standard, optimised and bespoke seals. With ISO/AS/TS and NADCAP accreditations, Nicholsons integrated service includes machining, rolling, forming, heat treatment and chemical processing.
At Paragon we help you bring your products to the market. We have established ourselves within the sensitive market of Aerospace, Defence and Security and have become a trusted supplier to some of the sector’s leading organisations.
Our rapid prototyping solutions create highly scrutinised models from 3D CAD data, whether it be to visually present a new concept, to perform as per the finished product for testing, or even for low volume manufacture. Post launch we can provide accurate scale or cutaway models for Marketing and exhibitions too.
Services offered to support product development include:
• 3D Printing - Stereolithography (SLA) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
• Vacuum Casting
• Reaction Injection Moulding (RIM)
• CNC Machining
• Finishing processes to ensure that surface textures, colours and mechanical properties are as close as possible to how the final product will look, feel and perform.
