Design students Factory Day

Before taking to the factory floor, thirty 2nd year students were given an in depth presentation by Leafield’s Product Design Manager about the product life cycle of plastic recycling bins from concept and design stages through to manufacture and dispatch. The group went on to observe the set up and operation of machinery through each stage of the production process demonstrated by Leafield’s skilled precision engineers.

Cardiff Met Product Design lecturer Gareth Barham said, "This visit gave students a chance to gain a valuable insight to the UK manufacturing industry. While coursework is important, actually understanding how the design stage fits into the bigger picture is the best way to learn and provides valuable context for students."
Leafield Product Design Manager David Bray said: "It is rewarding to give students the opportunity to put their learnings into practice and understand how the concept and design stages are crucial to the success of the manufacturing process and the success of the end product.”
