Could NDE be the solution you have been looking for?
Working with our clients to help bring their designs to life is just one of the feathers in our manufacturing cap. The largest part of our facility focuses on full production; however, we have steadily built up a great reputation for developing projects with our sampling/prototyping service.
Our team works with you and can advise improvements on existing designs. Our enthusiasm for new projects showcases our desire to remain a leading UK Manufacturer. NDE’s dedicated R&D team will be with you every step of the way; turning your original concept into a working prototype. In addition to this, due to our production capabilities, we have the means to work beyond the prototyping and provide a full production service.
Currently, we are undergoing refurbishments within our facility. One of the major changes is providing us a new R&D workspace. Designed with innovation, new project introduction and continued prototype lead time reduction, in mind.
We welcome you to come and visit us. Meet the team, talk through your project and tour our facility. We look forward to working with you.
NDE welcomes new Engineers…
As part of our continued growth we are welcoming 2 new Engineers to NDE.
2 Mechanical Engineers will be joining our team this July; providing additional expertise, knowledge, advice and support. It’s a very exciting time for us, adding to the workforce, with this type of investment, signifies the intent of Goonvean Holdings and NDE, to always be doing everything they can to remain at the forefront of UK coil winding.
There are some very exciting projects on the horizon; we felt it was the right time to add to the workforce, to ensure we always have the capacity to seriously consider every project we are invited to work on.
In addition to this, we are also looking to recruit an Electrical Maintenance Engineer. Our coil winding facility is in Braunton, North Devon. It is a full-time, permanent position. Immediate start. A full job description can be found on our vacancies page. Here.
A ‘tension’ to detail …
As part of our continued investment and development, we have recently purchased and installed two Dual Servo Driven Wire Tensioners.
Wire tension is one of the most critical parameters of any coil winding process, having an influence on product characteristics, particularly DC resistance of the wire. Wire tension control devices are therefore required to ensure constant wire tension, as the wire speed can change during the coil winding process.
Moving forward in the industry is vital. The complexity of some of the components we manufacture, makes investments of this type a necessity. Being able to manufacture faster, as well as reducing set-up times, made these additions an easy choice. A matrix that accompanies the units provides added benefits such as; programme saving, tension altering and wind continuity.
Traditional winding methods are still required daily, however, when an opportunity arises to improve how we work and helps our continual efforts to ‘lean manufacture’, we are always front of the queue to move forward.
On Monday this week representatives from many of the Goonvean companies met at NDE for transition training in ISO 9001:2015, followed on the second day by IATF 16949:2016 (automotive). This has enabled all the businesses present to complete a detailed gap analysis, and in addition, several positive synergies in approach were identified that will assist all the team as we progress towards certification to the latest standard(s).
Engineering Design Show
We are pleased to announce that we will be exhibiting within the electronics sector of the Engineering Design Show at The Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 18th and 19th October 2017. Stand J42.

NDE is a BS EN ISO 9001: 2008 and TS 16949:2009 approved manufacturing facility which can manufacture 1 to 50,000 units per week. We welcome all custom enquiries and are keen to discuss both new, and existing projects.
We look forward to seeing you all soon.
Southern Manufacturing 2017
Fresh back from Southern Manufacturing 2017, we can certainly say it was well worth the trip.
A huge Thank You to everybody who took the time to stop by and talk to us. It is always a pleasure to see our current clients and, of course, spend some time discussing exciting, upcoming projects with potential new customers.
There was a very steady footfall for the duration of each day and it was very encouraging to see such a wide variety of visitors from so many different industries. Each element of the show, including; seminars, other exhibitors, show staff, catering, parking facilities to name just a few, all contributed to the professional, warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Overall, a very enjoyable experience, one which was certainly appreciated by everybody we spoke to. Hopefully see you again next year!
Representatives from the Goonvean group of companies met at NDE today to discuss & review ideas & best practices within the quality arena. It was fascinating to see that from such a diverse group of companies there was a consistency & commonality of themes that could be evaluated from different perspectives.
A fantastic opportunity for us all to share our collective experiences that will help shape & deliver future plans.
TS16949:2009 Approved and Ongoing Development
How time flies…
NDE have enjoyed a very successful 12 Months since obtaining our TS16949:2009 certification. During this time, we have continued to demonstrate our commitment to the automotive sector and encourage Companies in need of coil wound and assembled products to make contact, talk to our team, and allow us to showcase our ongoing development within the industry.
It is a very exciting time for UK Manufacturing, a time to work together and a time to highlight what is great about The UK automotive sector.
Our TS16949:2009 certification supplements our ISO9001:2008 certification, both help us achieve and deliver many customer requirements for supplier approvals.
