A few words from Tim...

This month we're going back to basics and focusing on where it all begins - the design.

The world is your oyster! However, there are some things to consider that will make life much easier in the long run when you come to manufacture your part.


Design for manufacturing is key and we cannot emphasise that enough. Be assured however, this is where we can help.

We work with you, taking information, be it rough sketches, drawings or just ideas, and create 3D CAD designs suitable for subsequent manufacturing.

We can analyse for mechanical and thermal issues, optimise for weight or other characteristics and progress your project significantley before you get to the first physical prototypes.

I Hope you will come away inspired! If we can help with your latest design project, plesae get in touch. We are, as ever, at your sericve.

Why should I worry about Design for Manufacture?

Design for Manufacture (DFM) is all about taking full advantage of the selected manufacturing process whilst at the same time engineering the part(s) to suit the process and minimise cost.
