Case Study 4 – Avalanche Bomb Development

Avalanche bombs are critical in the area of ski-field management. The avalanche bomb is fired across ski-field valleys and alpine areas to bring down an avalanche and make the ski field safe for the public and skiers.

Working with local entrepreneurs, Absolute Tooling was involved in the product design, prototypes, trialling and finally tooling to create the orange “bomb” that you see. The product is now exported from New Zealand to many locations around the world.

If you have a product idea that requires modelling, prototyping, and 3D printing to explore a new market, then contact us.

Happy Customers

Matta Products Ltd have had tooling built at ATS since 1991.

The majority of these tools are 1.5 tonne and over. Not only are they large and also complex in design, the quality is first class.

In recent years we have looked at and been tempted by the cheap tooling prices available from China. In the end we have always stuck with the ATS team, due to the service, design expertise, and input into product development.

We also see them as a vital support industry to our business and see them as a top tool making company in New Zealand.
