Prototyping

We are able to offer a full turn-key service including design and manufacturing of parts.

Prototype Design

In a sector with increasing consumer demands and expectations, we find that manufacturers have to push the boundaries harder than ever before.  As we reach the limits of technology we are more likely to encounter problems.  Our engineers have an excellent understanding of all the key engineering principles needed to solve problems.

  • Concept design & analysis – flow, thermal & structural CAE
  • Feasibility studies & back to back comparisons
  • Benchmarking
  • Materials expertise, strength, stiffness, fatigue properties
  • Stress reduction in critical regions
  • FMEA, Fishbone Diagrams…5Ys

We are able to design in all mainstream CAD packages, including CATIA and Solidworks.  Our in-house designers have significant automotive powertrain experience and can help your engineers make the right design choices for robust, efficient and reliable products that meet your performance targets.

Prototype Manufacture

Our on-site machine shop is able to make most prototype parts using conventional mills, lathes and grinders. We have several manufacturing partners who can assist where more specialised equipment is required.

Prototype Build

We are able to offer full inspection and assembly services for one-offs to small batch production at our facility.  Our engineers and technicians have a wealth of automotive engine experience and are ideally suited to supporting prototype engine build.

Prototype Testing

If you do not have the capacity to test new ideas Mathwall can support this activity using our range of on-site test facilities, from specialised rigs to engine dynamometers.
