Win n’ Grin Amusements Case Study


The Client

Len fisher is a Queensland business owner providing turnkey amusement-game solutions to the Australian and overseas markets. Over the past 12 years Metlink have been working with Len’s company Win ‘n Grin Amusements, to provide design and mechanical solutions for his coin-operated crane games, such as the renowned Cadbury Chocolate Factory™.

The Challenge

Len’s major objective was to source and manufacture high quality Australian made components for his gaming products that could service his home market against the overseas competition. Working with Metlink provided the answer to an Australian made manufacturing solution, but more than this, Metlink delivered for Len a continual design and manufacturing service to achieve ongoing, innovative solutions in the ever-changing gaming business.

The Solution

With machines needing to operate different ‘prize chutes’ and accommodate a vast array of favors from small chocolate-bars to fluffy toys, Metlink designed and manufactured various mechanical applications, gaming modules and consoles for the extended model variations needed to service a wider marketplace both at home and abroad.

Using their in-house design team, Metlink were able to create 3D virtual modeling concepts to demonstrate the workings on the complex internal mechanics eliminating the need for expensive prototypes.

Furthermore, the introduction of their state-of-the-art CNC and robotic equipment enabled Metlink to also supply product to the highest standard, with the lowest manufacturing cost and with nocompromise in terms of quality.

The Result

Proving themselves a reliable extension to the R&D department of Win ‘n Grin Amusements, Metlink continues to work on enhanced design features and low-cost manufacturing to ensure Win ‘n’ Grin’s products remain ahead of their competition.
