Our specialisms


Agri-Tech

Precision agriculture and the technologies and techniques embodied within it are dramatically changing the landscape for growers, equipment manufacturers and agrichemical providers alike.

Our multidisciplinary skills in sensor development, wireless communication technologies and fluid dynamics mean we are uniquely placed to enable innovation within the agriculture industry, helping ambitious companies find solutions to the challenge of feeding 10 billion people by 2050.

Transport & infrastructure

Telematics provides a vivid illustration of how technology can influence behaviour, from the low-cost sensors used by the insurance industry to characterise driving styles and encourage better driving to smart infrastructure that can monitor the flow of traffic to reduce congestion and pollution.

Our expertise in digital services, sensors, algorithms and data analytics enables us to deliver products and systems that are both technically and commercially successful.

Manufacturing

Profitable, competitive volume manufacturing requires a blend of continuous innovation, process control, engineering and applied science, logistics and informatics.

Our long experience combines world-class engineering with excellence in the technologies powering the Industry 4.0 revolution – sensing, automation, wireless communications and big data.

Using this rare combination of skills, we help our clients improve the profitability of existing facilities and design new equipment and processes.

How we work


Industry has always embraced new technology to improve productivity, reduce costs and create new processes. Today's technological advances encompass not just mechanical and electrical engineering, but also sensors, algorithms, communications, data analysis and machine learning – a truly multidisciplinary challenge.

We have both the breadth and depth of expertise to harness this new technology and deliver breakthrough innovations. We assemble teams of world-class engineers, scientists and consultants specifically selected for each project, combining our skills with our clients’ knowledge of the sector to form highly productive partnerships.

Tech, tools & facilities


Optics labs
 

Optics labs

Our suite optics of labs enables us to build complex and high-precision optical layouts, typically for testing prototype designs and novel techniques prior to deployment. Featuring six high-spec optical benches with configurable interlocked controlled areas for high-power (class 4) laser work and specialist facilities for interferometry, spectroscopy, low-noise fluorescence imaging and photon counting. This space can be split into separate laser-controlled areas, allowing multiple experiments to run simultaneously, giving our optical engineers the capability to develop creative solutions without instrumentation restrictions.

Software tools
 

Software tools

We use a range of specialist software for model-based design and simulation. These include MathWorks Matlab and Simulink (including automated code generation and GPU acceleration), dSPACE for model based design, hardware in the loop testing and development of mechatronic systems, and CFD solutions including COMSOL Multiphysics for multiphase flow simulation. Finite element packages like ANSYS Maxwell and HFSS, CST Studio and Microwave Office are used for full-wave, transmission line and magnetostatic simulation. We also employ a dedicated compute cluster for machine learning, neural network training and continuous verification.

Analytical laboratories
 

Analytical labs

Our laboratories provide high accuracy measurement and analysis for the wide range of projects we undertake. Specialist equipment includes a gas chromatography mass spectrometer (GCMS), a Matersizer particle size analyzer, a Spraytec laser diffraction droplet size analyzer, high-speed and thermal imaging cameras and rapid-development custom image analysis software.

Prototyping workshops
 

Prototyping workshops

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.

Cowley Road
 

Large prototyping facility

This 5,000 sq foot space enables the development and test of large scale systems such as warehousing, logistics and production machinery, and confidential testing of electro-mechanical, high power and RF systems in a realistic environment.  This configurable facility features 20ft operating height at the eaves, large access doors and mechanical handling facilities to allow heavy machinery such as conveyors, lifts and machine tools to be installed as project work demands.

We can help you achieve the seemingly impossible
