Design & Development

Intech's ISO 9001-2008 accredited design and development procedures utilise the latest in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) technologies to rapidly innovate engineering concepts. Three dimensional CAD (3D CAD) is complimented by both illumination and computational fluid dynamic analysis where appropriate. Concepts are embodied using a stage-gate model allowing us to move through the development activities with confidence, while limiting potential design problems.

Using the latest Rapid Prototyping (RP) technologies combined with both prototype and pilot tooling, we can deliver fully functioning optical sub-systems, allowing verification tests to be conducted and preliminary approvals to be obtained early in the design cycle. Intech's development activities adopt a sustainable approach and, where necessary, additional software tools and techniques are used to analyse any impacts.

Intech's design activities are controlled by our Product Data Management (PDM) system, which has integrated Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) workflow. All of our development documentation is managed in the PDM system, including specification documents, test results, reviews and CAD / CAE data. All product development activities are routed through a PLM workflow progressing designs into manufacturing.
