We are design engineering consultants providing professional bespoke solutions for new product design and development.

We provide concept design through to production and include production engineering and cost analysis right at the start of the project, minimising post design changes.

We consider it important to fully understand the application of the design and to capture the client and end users expectations and working directly with you, we are able to ensure continuity during its development to produce something that little bit special.

Each design is reviewed and issues quickly resolved.  The same procedure is undertaken when the design is ready for manufacture.  The supplying factories all have an input into the design which we manage, incorporating requested changes that reduce process risk and cost implications.

Each component part is fully detailed and we also include traditional 2D drawings and assemblies with parts lists and manufacturing instructions where required.

We undertake designs using 3D CAD providing realistic renderings of the concept.  The design files are used to produce a prototype which we are happy to supply.  We can supply prototypes using rapid prototype techniques as SLA, SLS or traditional methods. We do prefer CNC from solid materials as we find these very robust and more representative of the production component and can be used for physical testing.  Typical turn-around for prototypes is 5-7 days.

As well as 3D CAD design we also provide;

  • Prototyping Service
  • Concept Visualisation, rendering
  • Component Design, design for manufacture
  • Electronic and Software design (via our partners)
  • Project management
  • Media and Graphic Design
  • Packaging

We are one of the very few consultancies who actually manufacture and supply the product and component parts in medium to high volume.  Please refer to our other pages.
