Cambridgeshire’s mechanical design and development company.
From first principles of mechanical engineering to complex production mould tooling, Cambridge Design Technology provide mechanical design services to accommodate the most challenging of development programs.
Using PTC Creo® and Solidworks® 3D CAD modelling tools, intricate component design and large assemblies can be created, manipulated and developed and engineered to meet the design specification.
Attention to detail and understanding the specification are key to a successful outcome. Every engineering aspect of the brief is critiqued to ensure that delivery of an effective product is achieved.
Proof of principle is critical in determining a good robust foundation of any developed mechanical design concept. This development is based on sound engineering and innovative applications and ideas. Prototyping of the proof of principle and testing it increases confidence to continue development.
Using analysis tools for checking geometry, motion, and thermal and structural integrity, engineering of the designs delivers robust solutions suitable for the intended environments of use.
Developed concepts are taken forward and as the CAD designs are honed in to meet the brief, then further prototypes would be made allowing client testing, using representative materials and components.
Once the prototype has been validated and verified the exercise to optimise the design for manufacture begins. The production engineering cycle may start at the beginning of the development cycle to ensure that the manufacturers have full visibility of the product. This allows the design to be sure of meeting the necessary specifications of capital costs, manufacturing costs, materials, performance, and the plethora of other factors which can affect the success of a product.
Cambridge Design Technology has the experience to apply innovation, good engineering practices and employ the necessary tools and methodologies to ensure that the optimum design is created.
