Design

The majority of our team's extensive experience in product design was gained within the automotive latching sector. This is recognised as one of the most technically challenging electro-mechanical components in any vehicle due to the long list of seemingly mutually exclusive demands placed upon these products.

They must for example release with one finger in day to day operation yet resist up to 30 times the force of gravity to remain resolutely closed in crash situations. They need to work reliably at temperatures of up to 80ºc in the desert and down to -40ºc in frozen winters. They must even include the up-to 100 components necessary to deliver complex comfort and security functionality yet remain smaller and lighter than a half bag of sugar to meet the packaging constraints of the vehicle.

Overcoming these hurdles requires a very methodical, determined and creative approach and it is one that we bring to all our design work for all of our customers.
