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.
Opened the new Idealog magazine this morning and two products we worked on picked up awards at the 2016 NZ Innovation Awards.
One of our Head Designers made the news last night as a Judge of the James Dyson NZ Award, and to present Spencer Buchanan with his award. Just one of the ways we are helping emerging NZ Design talent.
