DESIGN AND SIMULATION

It’s one thing having a great idea. It’s another altogether being able to understand how it will perform in the real world.

Design and simulation

Well-designed products by skilled, experienced people.

Inevitably, this means a collaboration between the designer (usually our customer) and our own engineers.

If the product is unproven, and prototyping and testing an expensive or time-consuming option, a critical stage in the design process can be simulation of the part in situ in order to assess and correct any design flaws and wear issues.

Take a look at the following pages to understand better what we can offer prior to manufacture:
