Your most difficult mechanical engineering problems, solved
Developing a complex mechanical or electromechanical system from scratch is daunting. Adopting the wrong approach – or the wrong balance between analysis, exploration, physical prototyping and testing – could delay your programme, incur extra costs and jeopardise future investment.
Without the right development structures in place, you could overlook more creative solutions. That’s why product managers choose our mechanical engineers to help them solve difficult problems.
Our expert team has broad experience in designing intricate mechanisms, microfluidic systems, dynamic systems, and thermal management, through to complete laboratory instruments, consumer products and production and process equipment. They conduct numerical and virtual simulation, empirical analysis, and frequent prototyping and testing.
As a result, we develop fully operational solutions that help you overcome design challenges so that you can build products cost-effectively and release them to market quickly.
A smoother, faster, more efficient process
During each phase of a product development programme, you need different prototyping and production processes. That means that in addition to defining what a prototype needs to do, it’s essential to consider requirements for durability, accuracy, refinement and materials.
eg technology’s specialists approach your project with a focus on usability, risk mitigation, system integration and manufacturability. They uncover and de-risk the most complex problems early on, creating a smoother process that minimises project overspend and delays.
We also have the capability to assemble complex product prototypes in a controlled manner before working with external manufacturing partners to scale up manufacture as needed. And our clients rely on our extensive industry relationships to help them engage with local and global manufacturing partners, assisting with tooling commissioning, quality assurance documentation and market launch.
Blending analytical insight with creativity
Our mechanical engineers balance analytical and simulation processes with rapid, creative design and practical prototyping and testing, which helps them:
and tackle the uncertain elements of a mechanical system first. We prove design principles efficiently through simulation, physical prototyping and testing and risk mitigation tools such as failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA).
by drawing on our manufacturing and production knowledge, while using creativity and analytical insight.
Design for assembly
to ensure the appropriate testing is carried out at the necessary stages, enabling design iteration if required.
A standalone or integrated service
Many products need more than one discipline at some stage of their development. And because our mechanical engineers work in cross-disciplinary teams with our other specialists, they consider every aspect of the end-to-end process.

“Working with eg technology has significantly increased our work efficiency, both now and in the future. We were able to describe our application and trust the team at eg to define specifications, develop concepts, and deliver a prototype. This allowed our team to focus on our own areas of strength.”Genome Research Ltd | The Wellcome Sanger InstituteOmer Bayraktar
“I had the privilege to work with the eg team, albeit for a short period of time. We had requested a review of our design which the eg team did diligently and highlighted key areas for design updates. It is wonderful to meet a company who not only understand how to design products that address patient safety but are also able to communicate the design thinking behind it. I look forward to working with eg again in the future.”CNS Therapy, AGMarc Mathys, President
“It is never easy to integrate the conflicting requirements of biochemistry, electrochemistry and engineering in any project, but I was very impressed with the breadth of capabilities eg technology brought to the project. Close integration with the team here at Vantix led to a smooth and efficient interface.”Vantix DiagnosticsAndy Gover, Director
“eg technology delivered an injection of creativity and consumer product know-how that we, as a technology start-up, couldn’t provide in-house. We had the technology and an idea of how we wanted the hardware to work, but eg technology took these elements and turned them into a desirable consumer product that we were able to successfully take to market.”Cambridge Temperature ConceptsDr Oriane Chausiaux, Director
“We wanted to create the ultimate robotics camera control panel that is both affordable and easy to use. Our collaboration with the team at eg technology has delivered a solution that undoubtedly provides the simplest way for any producer to be able to consistently engage their audience with great, repeatable viewing experiences.”Vinten RadamecKaren Walker, Director
“We were very happy with the work that eg technology did and would work with them again without hesitation.”Avacta Animal HealthAlastair Smith, Director
“We are very happy with the work that eg technology did for us. We are already using the rig to improve the validation process for our optical sensors and as a result increase customer satisfaction.”Sylex Fiber OpticsPeter Löwy, Director
“We selected eg technology because they seemed to be the most pragmatic and focused of the companies that we had discussed the project with. They did not let us down. At every stage they offered practical solutions and a workable programme – always a priority when you are a smaller company. They consistently delivered on time and came up with really innovative ideas and solutions to deliver for us.”Wessex MedicalSarah Smith, Director
“eg technology’s work was instrumental in automating the Parsortix system so that patient blood can be processed efficiently using ANGLE’s patented Parsortix technology to capture CTCs. This was a major step forward in bringing the Parsortix technology to market.”Angle PlcAndrew Newland, Director
