Product development is all about details. Our experienced design team ensures that your product turns from a concept into a robust product, ready for production.
The first important milestone of the product development is to bring the product design concept to a first fully functional prototype. We call this first prototype the P0.
We use powerful 3D CAD software to develop the product. We design each part, create connections between the parts and integrate standard components. We select materials, production methods, treatments, possible coatings and colors.
More complex products might require integration of controls, wiring, hoses, motors, PCBs, transmissions, bearings or other technical components.
Once that is done, we make 3D CAD assemblies, check tolerances and perform simulations or tests on functionality, weight, strength and stress.
In dozens of demanding product development projects, both in the fields of sports, bikes, industrial, consumer and medical, we have gained experience with a large set of materials and work closely together with many vendors.
We have experience in using for instance bio-compatible materials like LSR (liquid silicon rubber), medical grade engineering plastics and medical metals.
In sports applications we use high performance engineering plastics, like glass filled Nylons, PEEK or simpler ABS / PC types of plastics, as well as high performance TPE and TPU’s. Apart from plastics we have experience with metals, like copper, magnesium, stainless steel and lightweight aerospace aluminium like AL7068-T6511.
For sports applications we gained experience in both natural as well as synthetic leathers and fabrics, both for shoes and bags.
In many product development projects we integrate electronic components like drivetrain motors, controllers, etc. In the past we had our in-house pcb development department, which is useful till the day of today in terms of understanding the integration of pcb’s in products, the limitations and possibilities.
In house we are able to quickly develop proof of principle set ups with off the shelf pcba’s and electronic components, Arduino boards and first level of software writing.
When the concept is working on a proof of concept level, we involve partners in the field of software development and pcb design to bring it to an industrial level.
Entrepreneurs and leaders work with our specialized product design firm to develop the best bicycles, sport products, medical devices and professional tools.
