Abraham Associates Ltd

 All images are the work created by Abraham Associates Ltd. 

Abraham Associates Ltd help its customers turn their product ideas into revenue and have been doing this since 1992. As a technical and creative Product Design and Development company based on the East side of Southampton, Hampshire, UK, we provide succinct design solutions to the functional and aesthetic. Along with the latest 3D computer aided design (CAD) tools, our multi-disciplinary knowledge and experience include Mechanical Engineering, Design for production, Engineering Product Design, Industrial Design, Electronics and software. Together, these form a service to develop a wide range of products from concept to manufacture. We also provide production support.

The scope of our experience spans products from low volume high value to high volume low cost, single components to large complex assemblies and systems. Our work has also been in many industry sectors and to companies from start-ups to large corporations.

  1. 3D CAD Design & Stress Analysis

    3D CAD Design & Stress Analysis

    SolidWorks with Simulation is our main CAD system which is central to the design process with data input and output serving various project needs. 3D computer models are used to confirm form, fit, function, motion, dynamics, aesthetics or analysis of many aspect such as Factor Of Safety (FOS), deflection, buckling, stress etc. Analysis is provided as a service on its own. Support can be provided for a product currently in development or there is a particular problem that needs to be investigated.

  2. 3D Printing & Prototyping

    3D Printing & Prototyping

    At Abraham Associates Ltd we provide the highest quality 3D Printing & Prototyping. We use and supply most of the 3D printing processes currently available SLA, SLS, DMLS, FDM complemented by vacuum casting, manual/CNC machining, conventional model making etc. 

    Prototyping cost must be established at the project start as a balance has to be struck between sufficient prototyping and the risk of addressing problems later in a project when parts may have been tooled and are in production.

  3. CAD

    CAD

    Abraham Associates Ltd provide professional 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) services and engineering design using SolidWorks, Composer, and SolidWorks Simulation Professional.  We typically take a product from concept, to prototype, into production and support throughout its product life cycle.  Assistance can also be given to develop a prototype suitable for testing a market or attracting investment.  3D CAD data is used to create all the engineering drawings and manufacturing data for production.  It can also be used to create high quality images for sales and marketing purposes and if appropriate 3D printed components.  User manuals, assembly instructions and documentation are another by product when combining SolidWorks 3D CAD and Composer.

  4. Carbon Fibre & Kevlar Case

    Carbon Fibre & Kevlar Case

    At Abraham Associates Ltd we have provided a light high tech, tough and rugged looking carry/operating case was required for some valuable equipment. This was created and used to protect the equipment within during transit and use. Weight had to be tightly controlled to less than 7Kg for transportation.

    3D CAD design, simulation and visualisation played a vital part in working with the customer during design reviews. The 3D data element enabled the product and aesthetics to be seen and developed in great detail before committing any capital expenditure.

  5. CCTV Camera

    CCTV Camera

    A new generation high quality rugged CCTV pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) camera was developed for an existing customer as the successor to a similar camera previously designed for them. This concept created a camera platform for current and future camera technology in an aesthetic package that is easy and quick to install.

    Mounting can be hanging down or in on top of a pole orientations. A lot of development went into the camera mounting interface. This was critical as it had to be quick and easy to install/remove at height and yet be very robust and secure to avoid the camera from falling and causing injury or damage.

  7. Design Consultants

    Design Consultants

    Abraham Associates Ltd are an Engineering Design consultancy based on the East side of Southampton, Hampshire. We specialise in developing mechanical, electronic and electro-mechanical products from low volume high value to high volume low cost.  Product type varies widely from a small handheld device to large high tech equipment and structures for example an articulated lorry scanner, high quality pan and tilt CCTV cameras, wood chipping machines, large liquid storage tanks (120,000 litre) and pressure vessels up to 100,000 litre.  Our service covers all aspects of product design from concept to manufacture such as Mechanical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Industrial Design, Software and Product Design. Rapid prototyping in its many forms is used to satisfy each project requirement. This may be design validation, simulating a particular material or a fully finished and working model. For manufacture we cover expertise in most production processes and have regular contact with vendors in these industries in the UK, Europe and China. 3D CAD and simulation are our main design tools.  With our computer generated models and images, marketing and documentation information is available early in the project and before any physical model offering many commercial advantages. We aim to accommodate our customers’ particular needs by establishing the most appropriate methods of communication, supply of information and assistance.

  9. Drive Bay (Computer Hard Disks)

    Drive Bay (Computer Hard Disks)

    At Abraham Associates Ltd we created a Drive Bay which enabled us to house two 3.5in computer hard disks in as small a module as possible, include cooling and require no tools to install/remove a drive. A thorough design, CAD modelling, simulation and rapid prototyping refined the design to a production ready state before commissioning tooling. This two part plastic injection moulding design provides the solution

  10. Electronic design engineers

    Electronic design engineers

    Many products we design are electro-mechanical so electronics and software design is an integral part of development and evolves with the product. Digital/analogue electronics and specialist areas such as RF (Radio Frequency) design are available - particularly popular for wireless/ WiFi products and applications.
