Product Development Lab

Taking your product from design to production.

Our product development lab brings all of our core competences together. Firstly we focus on defining a detailed product roadmap. Secondly we implement a prototyping and testing plan to optimise the product’s performance. Finally we explore how to effectively scale the product for manufacturing.

With support from the product development lab, clients can complete the development cycle and progress their initial idea into manufacturing. Our multi-disciplined team follow a thorough protocol to ensure any specific needs and challenges are addressed along the way.

We provide extensive prototyping and testing facilities, enabling clients to robustly trial their designs before going into production. We consider workflows, cost reduction and eco-design options, to present our clients with a complete picture of the opportunity.

Using cross-sector expertise, our expert team can provide a fresh perspective on product development. Specifically we help our clients achieve product innovation by taking trends from one market and successfully applying them in another.

Additive manufacturing offers new opportunities for development and production, but we must first meet the application requirements.

User-Centered Simplicity

A major healthcare manufacturer contacted us to design a novel and extraordinarily simple nebulizer device, consisting of very few components. In particular, the nebulizing ampoule needed to be made up of two parts, instead of the usual three: this implies a greatly improved ease of use, whereas the device fluid dynamics design has to be completely renovated.
