SCME can help you throughout the product development process.
At the beginning of the journey, SCME can assist with business case development, funding applications, and determining the best approach for your project. You can benefit from insightful inputs into your feasibility studies, ensuring that assumptions and estimates are on firm ground at the outset.
Moving into the middle of the development process, SCME can assist with:
- Industrial design (the proposed look and feel of the product, ergonomics, customer value etc.)
- Concept design ('blue sky' ideation, manufacturing methods, material choices, proof-of-concept prototypes, functional requirements, compliance requirements, supplier engagement etc.)
- Detailed design (precision geometric detailing, best-practice 3D CAD models and specification drawings, design for manufacture, design for compliance, prototypes etc.)
- Analysis (structural FEM analysis to determine strength, performance and robustness, as well as moulding FEM analysis simulating virtually all aspects of the injection moulding process). Injection moulding analysis using the industry leading Autodesk Moldflow Insight ensures that your product glides smoothly through manufacturing process, and your tooling investment is de-risked.
- Photo-rendering (allows you to see your product in 'real life' before committing to its manufacture, and allows you to present your idea to investors and other interested parties in a professional manner)
For the later stages, SCME can design and create production jigs and machinery for the on-going efficient manufacture of your product. Everything from simple assembly alignment jigs to fully automatic machinery.
