With composite structures, the best combination of design, material and processing method varies from application to application. Therefore, to maximise the value of our involvement, it's worth talking to Orthotropic at the outset of your project.  Our knowledge and understanding of the available options will help get your programme off to the best possible start.  We can generate and objectively assess candidate concepts, balancing the often competing pressures of cost, weight, performance and production rate.  We'll then flesh out and refine the frontrunner, performing preliminary analyses, DFMEAs and costings as required.  In particular, please talk to us about design for novel concepts, high loads and demanding environments.

We'll also be pleased to help move your design on from the early stages toward completion.  A keen eye for detail, modern CAD software and an excellent understanding of manufacturing means we'll add value throughout the design process.  We're also experienced in the preparation of documentation necessary for the successful navigation of design gateways.  We can perform or offer assistance with the following:

  • Design to code (DNV-GL, Lloyd's Register etc.)

  • Design basis generation.

  • Failure mode analyses

  • Materials selection and generation of design values

  • Design for manufacturing

  • Solid CAD modelling

  • Drafting

  • Manufacturing process flows and costings

  • Process specifications

  • Design reports

Whether you need a production-ready design or are simply looking to establish a viable concept,  it's likely that one of our  design packages will fit the bill.  We can also tailor bespoke packages to your requirements.
