The investments come on the back of a £2m relocation in 2013 and a recruitment drive across all departments.
MGS Technical Plastics invested £50,000 in the FARO Edge ScanArm HD - the industry gold standard for measuring components. It will improve the quality and value of initial sample inspection reports for customers.
The machinery measures 3D objects, plotting coordinates where it touches them. It is used for assessing the external and internal dimensions of tooling and component to a very high degree of accuracy.
"It's intuitive, accurate and it is also portable, meaning components already in use can be measured. The machinery is a favourite among big, specialist moulders, so the fact that we have invested in the kit demonstrates we're committed to offering the very best quality."
In addition, MGS Technical Plastics has procured the Cube Pro Trio 3D printer, allowing customers to ‘feel' products in advance of full production.
Garrity said: "Design is one of the most crucial parts of the process, not something that should be rushed. By using a 3D printer, customers are able to see and hold the designs in their hand. It gives peace of mind, and ensures that any mistakes are discovered before the expensive tooling phase."
The models made are full-size, a task which had previously been outsourced to subcontractors.
He added: "This is another set of serious investments we've made and another demonstration of our desire to work to the highest level of quality. Neither of these purchases are essential to our processes, they are both added extras because we intend to be the best in the industry."
