PRODUCT DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
When you’re producing a precision component, you need a specialist who understands how to develop your product from a concept through to a detailed, photo-realistic design, prototype and into production.
Using industry leading SolidWorks CAD Software allows us to generate an array of 3D Models, assemblies and 2D Drawings. Our bespoke rendering applications and skills transform your CAD Model into photo-realistic proposals.
When a design is agreed and ready to be physically explored, our in-house Stratasys Polyjet and FDM 3D Printing technologies can be a rapid way of presenting the fully formed highly detailed model or assembly within hours in a variety of materials to suit your needs.
Decades of experience in the Tekniplaz team means we have developed components and tooling for almost every sector:
• Medical including surgical equipment
• Building and construction including glazing/fenestration
• Leisure including toys
• Utilities – water, electricity, gas, telecoms
