Design and Prototyping Job Shop, specialising in one-offs, small batches and Titanium parts.
Mechanical design and prototype manufacturing specialist – particularly CNC machining. Masters degree education in Mechanical Engineering, and industrial experience in a variety of technical roles across automotive, bicycle and nuclear industries. The unique strength of Dward Design is the spectrum of knowledge available in both engineering design and manufacture, alongside the ability to present technical information and concepts in a way that can be understood by anyone.
I regularly run small batches of proven concepts, and pre-production prototypes. This is an example batch of 100 parts made in 6-4 Titanium. Making parts in batches like this can often offer significant benefits on piece price.
Work I take great pride in is machining of additively manufactured (or “3D printed”) components. I regularly undertake work with a requirement to add precisely machined custom threads and 3D surfaces to high value, complex printed titanium parts for custom bicycles.
Machining single parts and aiding in design aspects to reduce costs are skills I consider myself a specialist in. Being able to offer suggestions on the fly allows changes to be made in an agile and efficient manner, as opposed to the experience many customers have with machine shops – where the problem isn’t spotted until it’s too late.
