At D Squared we have invested heavily in software, equipment and training so that we are able to apply the very latest in design and engineering techniques to our clients projects. Our design and engineering services include;

– Computer Aided Design (CAD) : SolidWorks & Creo
– Finite Element Analysis (FEA) : SolidWorks Simulation & Abaqus
– Toleranced Drawings & Tolerance Analysis
– Human Factors Engineering (HFE)
– Instructions for Use (IFU) Development
– Risk Management (DFMEA & UFMEA)
– Technical Reporting
– Reverse Engineering & Competitor Analysis
– Intellectual Property (IP) Generation & Capture

Alongside these techniques D Squared utilise both additive (3D Printing) and subtractive (Milling & Turning) rapid prototyping processes for the production of visual and functional product prototypes, jigs and fixtures. Our prototyping facilities include;

– Syil X5+ CNC Milling Machine
– Proxxon PD230 Lathe
– Proxxon MF70 Milling Machine & THB Pillar Drill
– Formlabs Form 1+ Stereolithography
– Extensive Model Making Tools

In addition to our internal prototyping capabilities we work closely with a network of partners to provide a full range of prototyping services from high definition SLA and vacuum casting to rapid tooling.

Being able to characterise and verify product performance is an essential part of the development process which is often left until the final stages of the project. At D Squared we believe it is essential to thoroughly test each iteration of the design before moving onto the next phase of the project and have access to a wide range of test equipment including;

– Force & Torque Measurement
– Pneumatics , Pressure & Flow Rate Sensors
– Metrology
– Calibrated Balance, Timer & Thermometer
– Environmental Chamber

Like testing and verification, we believe that industrialisation should be integrated into the development process right from the outset, taking into account how the product will be manufactured and assembled, and producing specification that accurately communicate the design intent to toolmakers and manufacturing partners.

At D Squared we have extensive experience in the implementation of Design for Manufacturing & Assembly (DfM&A) solutions for both batch and volume manufacturing, having worked on projects with annual production volumes from 1000 to 150,000 units, including clean room moulding and assembly.
