New Product Development
CBM offers a complete Product Development Service, transforming your innovative ideas into successful products.
Our design team brings over 20 years of award-winning product development experience across a wide range of sectors including medical, healthcare, industrial and consumer electronics.
Our experience in industrial design, mechanical engineering, prototyping, and production implementation ensures CBM offers a complete Product Development Service to help you transform your innovative ideas into successful products.
Early stages of the design process focus on planning, research and generating concepts that explore aesthetic and user requirements. These concepts are refined before being fully engineered for manufacture. Once the design is complete, we produce component control documentation and drawings for production. We can assist with the implementation of your product through to full manufacture; everything you need to realise your idea.
Whether a large corporation, SME or start-up, we deliver the same professional, structured, yet flexible and friendly working relationship with a commitment to helping you make your product commercially successful.
Product Development Services
Early focus of this stage is aimed at developing a clear brief, defining the product specification, and researching the target users and market. This ensures your design is informed, relevant to user needs, and the function, appearance and value of your product will be optimised.
Using traditional methods and the latest 3D CAD tools CBM then explore and visualise concepts, maximising their market appeal, before refining your design for detailing.
We use design analysis and simulation tools, as well as in-house prototyping to minimise design risk and eliminate any potential problems prior to manufacture.
Once the design is complete we produce production control information that captures component specifications as 2D component drawings and 3D CAD files.
We use prototypes to evaluate the design intent, and if required produce visual models for marketing purposes, and manufacture multiple prototypes in functional mimic materials for more extensive testing.
We have an extensive network of suppliers throughout Europe and the Far East, offering a range of manufacturing processes and materials. We also have in-house Low Volume Production processes capable of producing injection-moulded quality components for small batch manufacture.
In particular, we now commonly source and manage the relationship between our customers and Far Eastern manufacturers in order to obtain high quality, cost effective tooling and injection-moulded parts.
