EXPERTISE

mechanics.

In mechanical engineering, we push the boundaries of what is physically feasible. Time and again, we come up with an innovative product or system product that can deliver exceptional performance or provide unique functionality. We cover the full mechanical design process, from weighing design alternatives to physically realizing one-off deliverables or prototype products and preparing series production/assembly. To best meet customer as well as end-user requirements, we always strive for the optimal, well-founded solution in terms of performance, cost and lead time, without taking shortcuts or oversizing the design.

sticking to design principles.

It all starts with thoroughly understanding and effectively modelling the physics of the design problem, contributing to a digital twin from a multi-domain perspective. Following the Dutch school of design principles for accurate movement and positioning, we take the proper control of the degrees of freedom as a starting point. We also consider the mechanical, thermal, magnetic and other material properties. With this comprehensive approach, we achieve the predictable behavior that is required to meet demanding specifications. We can apply topology optimization to further increase system performance and exploit new production technologies such as additive manufacturing.

 

MECHANICAL ENGINEER

Thomas Eisma.

“We are involved from the start of the project in order to define system requirements and developing test setups and prototypes for the feasibility study. After finding the most suitable concepts, we make a detailed CAD design involving experts form all the other disciplines. We have expertise in designing medical systems as well as high-tech equipment for the semiconductor industry. One day we develop medical drug delivery devices for large-scale production, the other day radiation shielding and cooling around an electron beam. Our expertise in one field helps us to come up with new ideas in another field.”

optimizing performance.

Our design creativity is substantiated by thorough analysis using first principles and multiphysics simulations. In addition, we follow a careful error budgeting procedure to account for measurement and control errors, thermal drift and other physical disturbances, and production tolerances. For industrialization of product designs, we cover DfX, where X stands for cost, manufacturing, assembly, maintenance, etc. We also address environmental considerations, ranging from acoustics and energy efficiency to product reusability and material recyclability. In this way, we deliver sustainable performance.
