Ahead of the pack

Industrial design is the professional practise of conceptualising, prototyping and developing products for mass manufacture. It takes into account aesthetics, function, user experience, ergonomics, safety aspects and advanced prototype/production techniques to deliver the desired outcome for each design. LX has in-house industrial designers with many years of experience across a broad range of products and verticals. Alternatively, LX can work with your preferred supplier or internal designers.

Key areas of expertise include:

  • Conceptulaisation including Ideation, sketches, 3D photo-realistic renders, functional CAD models, and mock-ups where necessary.
  • Prototyping including concept refinement, selection of parts and materials for manufacture, basic engineering drawings, and scale models that are functionally and aesthetically accurate using rapid prototyping technologies such as FDM, SLA, SLS, CNC, and Vacuum Casting.
  • Cross discipline liaison ensuring the best approach to accomodate the electronics into the proposed enclosure.
  • Trial runs including soft/MUD tooling for short Injection Moulding runs, tests for IP ratings, full engineering drawing packs including itemised BOMs and manufacture specifications.
  • Volume manufacture including risk mitigation and quality control.
  • Graphics and packaging including generation of instruction manuals, product packing and associated graphics.
