REFINING AND IMPROVING THE DESIGN FOR EXISTING PRODUCTS

FINDING PRACTICAL WAYS TO IMPROVE PRODUCT PERFORMANCE AND REDUCE MANUFACTURING COSTS THROUGH VALUE ENGINEERING.

Design optimisation & COST REDUCTION FOR YOUR PRODUCTS

We apply our value engineering experience and expertise to the design of entirely new products and also to projects where we are asked to upgrade and improve existing ones. Value engineering is an important process in product development. During the development phase of a product’s design process, our design engineers at GX will analyse and optimise the design to improve products’ function and form.

To us value engineering is about optimising the design to create the best possible design for the lowest possible cost. We look at how to build the greatest possible value into the product, in terms of functionality, aesthetics, ergonomics, and sustainability. And we scrutinise every aspect, from materials and number of parts, to production techniques, assembly time and tooling, to find the most cost-effective way of producing it.

Increasingly technology has helped speed the concept through to a final design, making it easier to define a viable product using intuitive 3D CAD software.  The team at GX rely on this and rapid prototyping to alleviate the increasing economic pressures placed upon new product development by scoping out a products performance and design.   Using cost effective solutions like PU vacuum castings, SLA and SLS, we can accurately produce rapid prototypes of revolutionary designs for a variety of industry sectors.

Technology driving down manufacturing costs

Using a variety of processes, such as CNC Milling, we now have the capability of producing parts in volumes that eliminate the need for expensive tooling. We also have the capability to produce small quantities or one off prototype products since we are able to machine a part directly from a 3D CAD file. For clients who only require smaller numbers of their finished products this technique has a distinct advantage since we can produce only as many units as are needed.

ALL YOU NEED – FROM A TIGHT KNIT TEAM

Whatever your product, we have an in-house team whose skills in value engineering and product refinement combine to ensure we can deliver you a cost effective solution.
