Below are samples of engineering design projects completed by CDG…
The project was worked on from concept through detailed design to production.
CDG design the plastic panel, added many clever design features and undertook stress analysis to prove the concept prior to tooling and manufacture.
The project involved packaging a pre-design pcb layout into plastic covers that could be easily assermbyed and disassembled, using carefully designed and engineered clip features.
CDG were employed to prove the design and strength of the lifting lugs.
A new idea for permentantly fixing moveable objects (like park benches or motorbikes) was conceived. The new plastic earth bolt could be screwed into the ground anywhere where an anchoring point was required.
The clever part was once screwed into the ground, it could not be easily removed! Prototypes were created to prove out the design.
The new design was turned around to an extremely tight deadline and following a very specific design brief.
CDG were contracted to provide the answer using FEA tools to see the stresses both inside and out.
In order to prove he could ride the bike, Action Man was digitised into a 3D CAD file and positioned on the bike. Advanced surfacing techniques were used in the design of the fairing, seat and petrol tank design.
A precise design specification was required to be drawn up and followed to fall inline with the corporate branding and industry requirements.
Ever thought about a roofer walk on a roof? Do the tiles ever break? And how do the tiles stay in place?
Good design in the answer, and CDG were asked to act as consultant engineers on the design and stress analysis of a new roof tile,
Even more important, who turned the idea into reality. Well we wouldn’t want to take all the credit, as the truth was CDG were part of an integrated design team. But we did a pretty cool design in CAD!
