DesignEdge Cambridge Ltd

Industrial design and product development combining styling excellence with innovative engineering to create successful products.

DesignEdge delivers an integral industrial design and electro-mechanical engineering services to industries ranging from medical devices and consumer goods to precision instrumentation. We combine rapid development techniques with an in-depth knowledge of aesthetics, ergonomics and user insight, developing compelling products from concept visualisation to full commercialisation.

Not only can we add style and bring brand appeal to your new product but with our technical expertise we know how to transform those ideas successfully into manufacture. We can look at your product laterally and find innovative solutions that help you realise your product's full potential and lower your costs. Our aim is to combine innovation and styling excellence to add value and reduce your assembly costs. We have an extensive supplier network including low volume moulding, CMs in the Far East and large scale RIM, we will compliment your in-house skills and we offer assistance for as much or as little of your project as required.

Our key design services include project planning and identifying key milestones, research and future trends, concept generation and ergonomic analysis, detail and mechanical development, prototyping and testing, design for manufacture and product launch support. Approaching each project with a fresh perspective and broad, up-to-date knowledge of materials and the latest manufacturing techniques, we can and do find ways of making products more efficiently and less expensively than you would expect.


DesignEdge is an exceptionally professional and dedicated team and we are enormously grateful. A quick note to thank all at DesignEdge for your herculean performance in getting the cradle design and production completed so unbelievably quickly. Everyone was delighted with every aspect of the device including the look and performance, all of which exceeded our expectations. DesignEdge is a tour de force and we are so pleased for all the design work you have done, not least in being so meticulous with the paperwork and tight deadlines.

Products and services

Production Support

We offer manufacturing support to our customers all the way through to product launch and beyond. We have a proven track record in successful award-winning product development.

Our extensive supplier and manufacturer network means we can help you source components and set-up manufacture, both in the UK or the Far East. We can also help with prototyping, low volume production, packaging and quality control to ensure your product looks and performs exactly as expected.

Rapid Prototyping

Deciding which type of process to use per project, needs an understanding of what the prototype is to be used for and is a great way to refine the design. We utilise the latest rapid prototyping techniques such as multi-jet fusion, stereo lithography, selective laser sintering and DMLS. We can test and evaluate the design with overall space models for touch and feel purposes, through to ergonomic rigs and small batch production runs. Small batch vacuum castings of real working products can also be produced to assist with client presentations. We can also provide sheet metal working, CNC machining, thermoforming, labelling and painting finishes.

Mechanical Engineering

As well as developing your product on an aesthetic level we provide an integral electro-mechanical engineering service, supporting in-house skills with complex mechanisms and test fixture design. SolidWorks Simulation allows our product engineers to evaluate structural performance under a range of physical scenarios. The powerful virtual testing environment enables engineers to determine thermal models, finite element analysis, product mechanical resistance, product durability and test heat transfer. Using Simulation early in the design process allows our clients to maximize product quality and reduce costs, optimising products based on a range of physical and geometrical parameters.

Concept Visualisation

DesignEdge excels at producing fast, accurate and realistic concepts to explore a wide range of design ideas both mechanically and aesthetically. We provide design-led innovation across a wide range of industry sectors, generating design ideas using digital sketching techniques or 3D CAD models. Our powerful rendering software generates exciting, photo-realistic visuals and can easily apply a variety of materials, colours, surface finishes and graphics to create visuals to bring your ideas to life.

Research and Planning

DesignEdge can work with you from the start of your product development programme. We can plan, identify milestones, key design phases and define a detailed product requirement specification. Our expertise can be used in research, competitor analysis and emerging technologies to identify development opportunities. We can access our extensive human factors and anthropometric database to optimise any ergonomics input. We know the impact of materials and production can have on the perceived value of your product in the market place and you can benefit from this knowledge.
