Robust, innovative, manufacturable products
Mechanical design is fundamental to virtually every project we undertake.
Our expertise in creating original mechanical designs and then transforming prototypes into exceptional, manufacturable products in aggressive timeframes ensures our clients get to market fast.
We remain at the forefront of new techniques, processes and materials, delivering pioneering and robust mechanical design while meeting cost, performance and regulatory requirements.
The rapid and representative realisation of new concepts into working physical test fixtures and prototypes means that we are able to test the feasibility of new ideas very quickly.
Our experience in rapid prototyping plays a crucial role in achieving optimal performance, reducing risk and increasing speed to market for our clients.
Versatility & breadth
Thanks to the sheer range of projects we handle, our experience in mechanical engineering and design is as broad as it is extensive.
From tiny mechanisms in plastic to large-scale production and processing equipment, consumer appliances, complex electronics, sensors and optical assemblies, we set the highest standards for engineering excellence.
We also have extensive experience in critical applications, from pressure housings for sub-sea oil and gas exploration to electro-mechanical surgical products.

Tech, tools & facilities
Our electronic and mechanical prototyping workshops allow us to produce technically credible prototypes that bring ideas to life and offer a powerful demonstration of their value. All while maintaining extremely high standards of quality that conform to ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and ISO 14001 regulations. Using the latest CNC and milling machines, lathes, welding gear and wire harness and cable assembly tools, we are able to produce parts very quickly and assemble full-scale working prototypes for testing and consumer trials.
With various 3D printing machines at all our engineering sites, we are able to print 3D-designed parts to a representative size, form and material in rapid time. This means that we can iterate designs very quickly. Engineers can print their own parts, check for fit and function, make improvements and print again. We can also send 3D data to be printed on other sites working around the clock staffed by our engineering teams around the world.
Using hand and machine tools, laser cutters and 3D printers, this is where we create custom parts, build test jigs and fixtures and modify existing components. This means that our engineers can make changes to test pieces and prototypes whenever they need to, 24 hours a day.
Computer-aided design & engineering
Using the latest CAD and CAE systems, we design 3D parts for single tests pieces through to complete production assemblies with thousands of individual components. In addition to maintaining the most up-to-date software, we invest in developing proprietary tools and processes. Meanwhile, data management and version control systems allow us to work anywhere securely and efficiently.
