Mechanical Engineering

The Planet Innovation Mechanical Engineering team consists of Mechanical, Mechatronics and Product Design Engineers, with a vast range of experience across the entire product development process.

  • Rapid test rig development from concept to functional test rig.
  • Prototype design, development and testing capabilities that ensures a higher quality final product.
  • Detailed design capabilities with a focus on design for manufacture and robust production instruments.
  • Test and verification of instrument hardware.
Specific product development capabilities include:
  • Robotics and electro-mechanical motion systems design expertise.
  • Fluidics and pneumatics systems design expertise, including microfluidics.
  • Reliability growth and demonstration.
  • Component design for all types of plastic moulding processes.
  • Precision machined component and sheet metal design.
  • Production of high quality engineering drawings and assembly specifications to internal or client standards.
During development we utilise the following onsite tools:
  • 3D modelling using SolidWorks.
  • SolidWorks PDM (Product Data Management) system for CAD file sharing and revision control.
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
  • Thermal simulation.
  • Injection moulded component analysis.
  • In-house 3D printing and rapid prototyping facilities.
