Research & Development
We conduct a range of research and development (R&D) activities for companies small and large. Often large companies find that they do not have the time required to dedicate to some R&D programmes and we can produce quick results by focussing on your specific programmes.
Small & medium size companies often lack the skilled engineers or experience to conduct the work themselves. In this instance we can provide you with highly skilled engineers that are fully aware of existing technology and material developments.
It can be highly cost effetive to outsource your R&D programmes but ultimately it allows you to develop your solutions quickly and effectively and hence bring you products to market more quickly.
We can either work independently or as part of your own development teams. Work can be as simple as conducting feasibility studies or literature reviews to complex prototyping or development of blue sky technology.
Some typical examples of recent work include:
- Development of novel cable compounds
- Development of an improved process for platinum recovery
- Research into wear resistant paints and inks for polymer systems
- Effectiveness of wear resistant coatings on metal substrates
- Prototyping of rubber mouldings in new materials.
Whether its at the begining of your development programme or at the final verification stage we can offer you a service to assist you.
