Our team has expanded to bring on board the best design talent we could find.
Distance isn’t an issue. We might be based at the bottom of the world, but our work reaches across the globe.
Our work for Daifuku BCS at the new Guangzhou Airport Terminal made the news on ChinaDaily.com recently.
Design for Manufacture
I recently bumped into someone who asked what I did for a living. I told them I was a designer and was met with “oh, you create pretty pictures…”
Yes, it’s where we start, but it’s only a small part of the design process. To develop a product from idea to production requires concept development, CAD modelling, prototyping, CAD refinement, more prototyping and finally production procurement.
227 components, 5 fabric bags, 36 injection mould tools, 3 fabric forming tools, 3 extrusion dies, 8 stamp press tools and 3 spring forming tools produced across two countries is what it took to produce one Barmes freebase. All parts designed and specified from pretty picture to manufacturable product by Formworks.
It seems we are spending more and more time in China lately helping our clients to ensure their products are coming out to the specifications required and with a high level of finishing.
Big week up in China during the past week, working on the assembly of a large scale prototype for a project we are working on in Guangzhou.
A few logistics challenges faced, but a few trips to the local markets, and some super friendly people helped sort that out.
Looking forward to sharing the finished product later in the year.
