          Concept Generation

          With an understanding of either a high level basic blue sky idea or a detailed product specification we can generate speedy conceptual designs (hand sketches, Adobe Photoshop images, Keyshot 3D CAD Renderings).
          This providing an overall feel for fit, form and function, features, styling, ball park costs and first order analysis / critique.

          Engineering Product Design

          Following on from agreed concept design(s), we can derive a fully engineered solution producing detailed 3D CAD models and 2D drawings (Autodesk Inventor).
          Engineering Design validation we would confirm through the use of rigorous analysis tools including, FEA (Finite Element Analysis - Structural, Modal, Thermal), FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), DFM/A (Design For Manufacture / Assembly) and Geometrical Tolerance Analysis.
          With this well rounded Engineering toolkit within our folio, we can develop, functional, robust, efficient and aesthetic products.

          Product Realisation

          We have in house rapid prototype capability including both SLA and FDM processes for parts. We also we work closely with a number of external rapid prototyping companies for other formats (MJF, SLS, DMLS).
          Together with the above and with our close relationships with local machining and fabrication companies we are able to generate either aesthetic only or fully functional prototype models or low volume manufacture finished products.

          Intellectual Property Protection

          We can help clients protect their designs or inventions by drafting and submitting Regsitered Designs or Trademarks with the UK Intellectual Propery Office.
          We also produce preliminary Patent drafts and work closely with a IP Lawyers to protect novel inventions / products for UK and on an International basis.

          Training / Coaching

          As well as providing engineering product design services we also offer to share our 25+ years industry experience via a number of on client site training courses and best practices / tools implemetation and coaching. The training format are one day value added intro courses that can kick start some good working practices, complementing existing company core processes. These tools will aid in reducing development times, risks and costs.
          Courses include:
          - Design For Manufacture / Assembly
          - Design / Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis
          - Fundamentals of Geometrical Dimensioning and Tolerancing
          - Lean / Six Sigma Foundation
          - Project Management Foundation
          - New Product Introduction Fundamentals
          All courses are supported by interactive training materials, course booklets and toolkit templates. We can tailor some examples within the training to suit your product type. We can also come up with a mix of courses specific to your company’s needs. We back this up by following up with in house coaching through a transition period until these processes are instilled.
