Using SolidWorks computer aided design (CAD) software, we innovate, design and develop new components, simulate the effect of various forces and stresses, provide full motion analysis and optimise plastic parts for production. We can also use this software to generate drawings and export 3D data to manufacturers.

Design reviews


It is crucial that any new design created by ourselves, or by our clients, be thoroughly reviewed and tested prior to manufacturing. Referring back to the specification, our reviews provide a detailed analysis of potential risks within the design that can then be mitigated if necessary. This has important implications for product performance, product safety, costing, and manufacturing practicability.


We take existing products and prototypes and reverse engineer them to assess their components and the construction techniques used. We can then use this information to improve efficiency, increase robustness and reduce the cost.

Industrial Design

Concept design


We create design concepts that are unique, aesthetically pleasing and functional. From dramatic blue-sky thinking inspired by the latest trends to grounded technical solutions we can meet any project requirements.

Presentation


We produce hand drawn artwork, photo-realistic renderings and animations so that you can communicate the concepts, designs and technical details to your colleagues and customers in a compelling and accurate way.

Styling


Our state-of-the-art software allows us to create freeform, organic surfaces and integrate them with the mechanical design within our CAD software. Our experiance with many differing materials allows us to recomend materials that have brilliant CMF qualities and also be suitable for manufacture.
Simulation and Testing


Virtual simulation and analysis with computer software allows us to investigate multiple design iterations thoroughly in a short period of time before anything is made. These services include:

Strength testing of parts

 - We use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to predict how strong parts will be and where they will break, given certain forces and stresses. This information allows us to identify whether parts can be reduced in size and retain sufficient strength and which materials should be used for parts.

Moulding simulation

 - The flow and distortion of material during the plastic injection moulding process is simulated and analysed. This saves both time and money in developing plastic products by reducing the need for prototype mould tooling and tooling modifcation loops.

Light simulation

 - We can engineer and optimise the performance of light pipes and lenses using software to model the path that light takes through a variety of materials, lenses and mirror. This can reduce the number of prototyping steps and tooling modifications.

Microscopic inspection and measurement

 - We can inspect the precise size and shape of small parts using our high magnification Optical Coordinate Measuring Machine and Metrology Software. This allows us to reverse engineer competitor products, investigate problems with prototype parts and check the accuracy of production components.


Physical testing is an important process used in conjunction with virtual simulation. Physical testing and development in our lab ensures that the product is suitable for production, based on real-world and unpredictable factors.

Prototypes


We construct physical prototypes to check product styling, performance and construction methods. Our workshop has facilities to hand make or 3D print prototypes and we work closely with suppliers for CNC machining and low volume tooling.


The strength and operational forces of a product or prototype can be tested, measured and analysed with precision using our computer controlled axial force test machine and hand-held force test equipment. User interactions such as button press forces and assembly snap forces can be accurately analysed as can the flexibility and strength of materials.


If you want to ensure that you retain your intellectual property rights, as well as avoid infringing on the rights of other companies, we offer specialist advice and support in this area.

Some of the ways we can assist you regarding intellectual property are:

Patent reviews

 - assessing exactly what you competitors’ intellectual property covers.

Intellectual property solutions

 - identifying ways in which you can protect your own intellectual property rights or circumvent those of your competitors.

Brief writing

 - we can write briefs for submission to intellectual property experts regarding searches and patent writing.
Mould Simulation

Design for Manufacture


Through our wide range of services, we combine design, engineering and manufacturing considerations to create great products that are as functional as they are beautiful.

When you actually come to produce your product, we can make the process much easier, by assisting you with:

Design for assembly

 - we consider how the products are assembled and how to prevent or detect incorrect assembly.

Design of assembly and test equipment

 - For some products, how you make it is as critical as what you make. We can design jigs, fixtures and test equipment that perfectly match the product’s components and the specified assembly process.

Tolerance analysis

 - specifying the size of the parts so they work regardless of any production variation.

Supplier liaison

 - working with your existing and new suppliers to design components and processes that are optimised for their capabilities. We can also work with your suppliers to develop new and novel production solutions.

Production Support


We take pride in assisting our clients with every stage of a new product launch. This involves supporting them well beyond the initial design and testing of a product.

We can provide support in the following key areas to get production started:

Assembly line set-up

 - we can assist with the layout and optimisation of assembly lines.

Injection moulding trials

 - from our knowledge of the part designs and early moulding simulation work, we can assist your suppliers in setting the process parameters for creating the best parts on their injection moulding machines.

Qualification

 - we can check the products are made and assembled correctly and test that they are still being made correctly even if production problems occur.
