  • There is a relentless drive for ever smaller electronic products and storage technologies are responding to this call allowing product designers to work at smaller geometries. Designers need to attempt to differentiate these products at this smaller size. The company believes that the concept designs shown at CeBIT will inspire designers and manufacturers of next generation, smart mobile accessories. The new applications and products are limited only by the imagination of our manufacturing partners.”

  • Inca is an industry leader in the development and manufacture of inkjet printers for the printing industry. When developing the SpyderX platform, we recruited DesignEdge to utilize its in-depth design knowledge combined with its awareness of the print industry and high volume manufacturing; and its input was key to the platform’s success. Customers have since commented on how great the product looks and how the ergonomics of the machine maximize their productivity. Our business depends on cutting edge, innovative and top quality design and DesignEdge was the perfect partner to cooperate with!”

  • Design is very important when you are pioneering a new market and we feel this new design represents a step-change for our product. The many different applications for Series 7000 have meant the tag needs to be as widely applicable as possible. By working with DesignEdge we have achieved a distinctive design that is flexible but still attractive.” The tags won the inaugural Best British Inside iaward which celebrate the forefront of British science, technology and innovation. DesignEdge was recognised with the Ubisense Strategic Supplier Award.

  • Design Edge has been vital throughout our entire product development. Their ability to convert our technology ideas and market requirements into workable, robust solutions has been essential to our success. Their team have a wealth of knowledge and expertise; and rapidly assimilate the information they need to come up with clever, innovative designs with manufacturing and certification in mind. We are now moving forward with Design Edge’s help, in the prototyping of other rapid tests for diagnosing infectious conditions.”

  • The requirements for an attractive looking and robust product even goes down to the inside of the unit. The unit is aesthetically pleasing but maintains its core functionality that fits into a wide variety of deployments. If customers look inside they are usually very impressed, every fine detail has been planned meticulously. If people go on tour of a car plant or if it appears on TV great design promotes a strong brand.” The applications are limitless and Ubisense is now looking to use the technology to help early stage dementia sufferers.

  • Although the modulator is a component that ultimately ends up buried inside a cellular or WiMAX base station, the aesthetic design is still important since we want the product, and Nujira’s brand to be easily and readily identifiable. It could be just another boring component and the extra effort to make the design aesthetically pleasing is definitely worthwhile. This is where DesignEdge’s knowledge of mechanics, materials and manufacturing techniques helps. While design can be the main priority with consumer products there are restrictions on more technical products, this type of design has very stringent cost, quality and technical objectives that must be met. The customers for the Nujira product are the world’s leading mobile infrastructure vendors who are working in a very competitive industry with very demanding customers; the network operators. Product reliability is very important and the thermal and mechanical design of the product directly influences this.”

  • We engaged DesignEdge Cambridge Ltd over the course of three iterations of our in-ear headsets (our Biometric headset, Qualcomm TrueWireless Earbuds and sports wired version of the Qualcomm TrueWireless Earbuds). Our engagement lasted several months and resulted in the production of three form factors for our projects for our internal use during which time DesignEdge provided us with extremely valuable technical guidance, design help and support for our projects. We unveiled the headsets at CES in January 2018 and they have since received positive recognition in the market.”
