Engineering Design

We are experts in providing clients with engineering design support through all stages of the design process, research, conceptualisation, feasibility assessment, establishing design requirements, preliminary design, detailed design, production planning and fabrication.

Our Approach

MedTec aim to share your journey from concept to creation and as a standard, we would implement the below approach to our design challenges.

1. Conceptual product design & design review

  • Detailed review of scope of work and a brainstorming session with the client
  • Researching and generating ideas, identifying criteria- (must-haves and desirables), plus specifying constraints
  • MedTec to complete conceptual designs
  • Design presentation
  • Outcome: Selecting one design or cherry-picking elements from all to move forward with

2. Detail design & design review

  • Collaborative selection of approach
  • Development of proposal and detail design for chosen idea
  • Preliminary drawing package, including piece parts, assembly and GA’s. 
  • BOM Generation
  • Selecting key areas of design and prototyping for proof of concept.
  • Physical demo on concept/hardware, checking that it’s fit for purpose

3. Testing, evaluating & refining design

  • Cost analysis and review
  • Refining the design
  • Testing and evaluating the design
  • Detail drawing package ready for manufacture. 
  • Issued PDF and native file package
  • CGI of chosen design, for sales, marketing, and public outreach
  • Communicating processes and results via design review / sign off

However, MedTec are able to join a project at any stage of its lifecycle.

Draughting & 3D CAD

With decades of experience across several sectors, there isn’t many design problems that MedTec haven’t been tasked with offering solutions for. We have worked on projects that range from tattoo guns to piping and routing solutions for £56 million-pound motor yachts.

We can offer support to single clients looking to take a product to market, or to large corporations in need of addition design support. No client is too big or small, we are here to help. Some of the main areas that we are currently working in are renewables, composites, smart homes, electric motors, consumer products and test rigs.

“We have been very impressed by the level of quality of design work from MEDTEC so far. Dan grasped our needs quickly and produced results exactly to our requirements and to the quality we were promised. Any modifications have been completed within a timely manner and with an attention to detail. Needless to say, we are extremely satisfied with the results.”

Fabrication

Our turnkey approach allows us to take care of all your fabrication requirements. Our fabrication work is designed and manufactured to suit your individual needs, be they for one-off fabrications or for large batch runs. We will look after the whole process from design to build and test if required. 

As part of the process, we take pride in our project management systems to ensure the work is produced to a high level of satisfaction with regards to quality and meeting agreed lead times. We have access to a fully equipped workshop and highly skilled sheet metal fabricators and welders.

The experience we have had working with Dan and his team, George and Josh, has been absolutely excellent! They are polite, knowledgeable, extremely helpful and above all have a sense of humour which oils the wheels of the process! We have found they have taken on our projects with commitment, drive and enthusiasm as if it is their own project. Their design ideas are good, they do their homework, and most importantly they have included us in very regular update Zoom meetings to ensure no time and money is wasted pursuing the wrong direction.

We worked through quite a shortlist of potential companies before appointing Medtec, and would have to say we felt they were head and shoulders above in terms of cost, capacity and varied experience within their team. We no longer view them as a supplier, but as our virtual ‘in-house R&D department’; a luxury that is not normally afforded to a smaller company such as ours.

Other Services

MedTec will often use FEA throughout our design stages to allow for optimisation of products and parts. Our practical approach to simulation allows us to offer a very competitively priced service. The initial simulations conducted during the design stages are charged at our standard drafting hourly rates. Therefore, clients only incur full professional fees if they require final simulations or calculations to be signed off by a chartered engineer.

In addition to stress analysis for structural requirements, MedTec can offer Modal Analysis of components to determine vibration issues, and Dynamic Simulation to allow investigation of driving forces and reactions in mechanisms.

To complement our engineering services MedTec has the expertise to operate a fully portable five-axis digitising arm for inspection and design purposes. Using this equipment, it is possible to measure intricate shapes within tolerances equal to 0.03mm.

The acquired data can then be used to produce detailed drawings or to evaluate mechanical properties. Offering this service MedTec have assisted many clients to extend the service life of equipment for which spare parts are no longer available.

When it comes to Marketing and Selling your product MedTec combines the very best of design technology and materials using our in-house design team to employ traditional skills to take your ideas from concept to the finished product.

At MedTec we offer a mix of precision engineering and a more arts-based visualisation service tailored to suit your requirements. We can produce custom-made scale models/ CGI and 3D models for architects, engineers, boat and land transport designers, industrial designers, and trade show exhibitors.

Our Work

For over 40 years MedTec has provided engineering design seevices to organizations who lack their own in-house facilities, and a support service to those whose own staff are overloaded – a flexible workforce available at a moment’s notice to support the engineering community.
