What unites our work? It is centred on innovation and smart technology. It represents something which others have not thought of or perhaps considered too challenging. From mass produced devices to unique, one off prototypes and specialised low volume devices, we create smart devices that bring tangible commercial advantage and drive growth for our clients.
From handheld to wearable devices, we specialise in creating smart things in small packages. From sensors and data logging to lab devices, microfluidic systems to drug delivery, atomisation systems to one off technology demonstrators, small is always beautiful at Ignitec.
We aim for a creative leap but always from a strong platform. We build that platform by understanding the user experience, asking the right questions and challenging assumptions. It’s a culture where ideas are encouraged and cherished. We then apply a robust research methodology to test, explore and demonstrate new ideas.
Partnerships with our clients based on shared knowledge are at the heart of our approach. Our product design consultants and R&D team integrate seamlessly with our clients’ in-house teams through our project management platform. Great working relationships, between ourselves and with our clients deliver great results.
We know how things work and how to make them work. We utilise a range of technical disciplines spanning industrial design, mechanical engineering, electronic and product design and manufacturing. It’s rational thinking and results orientated.
However big the vision or ambitious the scope, our approach is always rooted in commercial reality and focused on objective, results orientated goals. Our rigorous processes help to drive the achievement of competitive advantage and the creation of valuable IP.
Real world testing helps us build better products. Therefore, we use prototyping throughout the process. This ranges from quick testing of ideas at the exploratory stages of a project to ongoing prototyping in real materials, right through to the finished product. We utilise the latest rapid prototyping and conventional manufacturing methods technologies to validate ideas, get user feedback and prove concepts. This ability to repeatedly build and test means that we are continually fine tuning ideas into a perfect result.
We have the expertise to rapidly build completely integrated electromechanical systems to test the viability of ideas. We accelerate our learning and reach valuable conclusions more swiftly.
Our focus on results requires detail and precision. As well as developing products and devices we manufacture, assemble and test. We have extensive in-house capabilities for specialised, low volume devices and call on a global network of trusted manufacturers to deliver anything from one offs to mass production.
We use creative thinking to originate fresh ideas, but we use a scientific approach to explore and validate. We use rigorous measurement and scientific analysis to prove that our recommendation is the best solution. It’s a mix of magic and logic, inspiration and rigour.
