Optimise Performance, Reliability and Cost

Many designs look great, but don’t deliver when it comes to usability. Our mechanical engineers make sure that your product works exactly as it’s meant to. At Oxford Product Design, we use the latest software and best practices to engineer our designs in an optimum and cost-effective way.

CAD surfacing and detail design

Our engineers can work efficiently and effectively, because we run the latest SolidWorks and CREO CAD software packages.

Design for Manufacturability (DFM)

We consider the manufacturability from an early stage, and will always design your product to make manufacturing as simple and cost-effective as possible.

Design for Assembly (DFA)

Our designers make your products to be easy to assemble, because fewer parts in the assembly means reductions in overall assembly time and cost.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Our team uses computer simulation methods, so we can predict how a product reacts to force, vibration, heat, fluid flow and other physical effects. We use FEA to show when and how a product will break or wear out, and so make your product more reliable.

Mould Flow and Tolerance Analysis

If you’re planning a plastic injection moulding, we can simulate material flow through the mould. Before the mould is built, we can spot any problems and so enhance mould quality, performance and product appearance significantly.

Prototyping and Rig Building

Our team develop realistic prototypes and build rigs, and so provide feedback, testing and design validation. Oxford Product Design has an in-house Stratasys Objet500 Connex3 3D Printer. We use this to produce models in engineering plastics, digitally blended rubbers, and 450 different colour combinations including transparent regions. We can create extremely high resolution parts with almost any mechanical and visual property you require.

Manufacture Ready Data

We take many projects all the way to the manufacture-ready stage, because of our rigorous testing and validation process. You will save valuable time and money bringing your product to market because manufacturing partners can cut tools directly from our data.
