Foxhound - Armour-Plated Vehicle

In 2013 Thomas Storey were awarded the contract to assist with the design and prototyping of the cab for a new armour-plated vehicle for the defence industry.

The cab was manufactured from a number of specialist materials including Domex and Armox and required our Engineers to use pre-stressing and heating techniques to counter distortion. Complex shapes had to be formed and fitted and advanced welding techniques had to be utilised.

Build and weld jigs had to be designed and manufactured as did numerous part location jigs to enable the cab to be incorporated with the rest of the vehicle that was being manufactured elsewhere.
