Product Design & Engineering Consultancy

Product design and design engineering by Environmentally Sound

Our product design and design engineering experience is in:-

  • concept engineering and product design

  • products and projects in mechanical engineering, including other engineering disciplines like electronic and electrical engineering

  • design for environmental elements

  • product design and development engineering to meet product design requirements

  • improving existing products

  • sound, noise, acoustics and vibration - mitigation and noise reduction through structural design

  • structural analysis using software, structural monitoring and measurement using transducers to determine, i.e. natural frequencies and mode shapes.

  • designing products to survive climatic conditions and to operate reliably in their immediate environment,

  • systems engineering.

We use our experience to design equipment and machinery; so that they withstand the environmental conditions around them. Both in Natural Environment and Extreme Environments.

We offer services relating to the entire product lifecycle, from cradle to grave. We improve designs, investigate failures and determine root causes. We are well versed in all the aspects of a product's lifecycle.

We design products and improve equipment and machinery to sustain their environmental elements.; these elements are present in the natural environment and in extreme conditions. Design requirements highlight these conditions for several industrial sectors.

All our projects adhere to relevant, industrial, legislative and regulatory standards, which are well defined in aerospace, marine, automotive, mining and industrial sectors.

We design and engineer compatible products. We provide several engineering services to complement the design of your product. And also provide managerial services in combination with engineering processes, process improvements and quality improvement.

Additionally, we also make your entire product recyclable.

"Engineering synergy between the environment, people and machinery!"

Design requirements

Every product design starts with product design requirements. (The function that the product must deliver once it's in service.)

Detailed product design requirements pave the way to a successful product design project. This ensures that a product will function well in its environment. Defining them well and in detail at the beginning, can save you time and money throughout the project.

Well defined product design requirements:-

This is where well defined, effective procedures and efficient processes help in product design and design engineering. Setting the procedures and processes for this phase of the product is very important. It will assist you with the scope of the project. Highlight the risks involved. Budget. Proof of concept. Testing and more.

Product Design

Established design requirements, moves the project to the design phase. And the design of the product can begin.

This phase is paramount for the designers to understand the design objectives. Especially, the environment in which the product will operate. Misunderstanding or poor communication could cause non-compliances. That will become evident in later phases of the product evolution. Usually, non-compliances appear during development and compliance testing. Which is too late, and that error will increase your cost.

Cost and time is always fundamental with the product design corrections. We always seek improvements that are least costly and time efficient.

We perform several engineering services to complement the design of your product. This is in support to designing for the environment.

We use a variety of technical supportive services in combination with engineering. One area of our expertise, is updating of finite element models using test, structural monitoring and analysis results. Usually acquired during concept and development testing.

This is particularly important for improving product performance. In relation to vibratin and noise, it enables us to model and analyse the structural behaviour. Which then enables us to control vibration. And to mitigate the noise of the machine or equipment.

All our projects follow relevant international design standards. Standards that are relevant in aerospace, marine, automotive, mining and industrial sectors. Our projects also adhere to legislative and regulatory standards.

Design Engineering - Product development and product improvement

Product development should complement and assist the detail design of the product. Feed back the results from the development testing into the design. This ensures that the product will survive and pass during prescribed testing.

So, if there is a new concept in the design, test it first. Prove that the function or concept works.

Additionally, use development testing to de-risk the project or programme plans. It gives confidence to the designer, stakeholders and management.

Effective development test procedures are fundamental in the proof of concept phase. These procedures have definitive objectives that will mitigate risks.

Conduct development tests on representative parts. Use representative parts and components; the outcome will be beneficiary to the project. We're amazed at the amount of times we have seen non-representative parts used in testing.

If the product fails during test; what conclusion are you able to make?

We have streamlined product design engineering by adding value with every step of our process
