Rapid-prototyping specialist Star Prototype has helped Warwickshire-based DCA Design to create a handheld device for the treatment of hard skin on the feet for footcare band Scholl.

Star was called in to deliver pre-production prototypes of Scholl’s two-in-one hard-skin remover, which was designed by DCA Design.

The company was tasked with producing 3,000 production-quality sets for pre-production testing and trials; this process involved the manufacture of a range of tools that included polished NAK 80 steel and soft P20 steel.

According to Gordon Styles, Star’s managing director, certain parts of the job were particularly demanding — most notably creating the plastic tube that serves as the handgrip for the product.

To resolve the issue of the plastic shrinking around the metal core, the company used a hydraulic cylinder on the side of the tool to pull it out.
