R&D

R&D to produce new technology and products is the key to creating better futures and vital to future proofing a business. The best R&D capability is one that can create inventive and original ideas and the know how to correctly protect and covert those ideas into high value proofs of concepts at low risk and quickly, economically, and effectively. Design Tower Ltd does this.


Design Tower offers to be an extension of your business’s R&D function and to be a trusted partner to carry out top multi-faceted strategy and research and development work to identify and create the innovative new technologies and products you need. We will transform unique ideas into ‘proof-of-concept’ solutions that gives you the complete technical and commercial feasibility answers necessary to have the confidence to proceed to further investment in carrying out detailed product design, engineering, manufacturing and brand development.


Our work encompasses materials, products, engineering, manufacturing and software technology R&D. Our range of R&D services are:

Technology Development

Technology is at the heart of delivering value in a product, service and process. Technology can be a material, computer code and component. Technology can also be a consequence of how different things interact with each other to produce something of value. 


Creating new technologies within the academia and corporate space has its challenges because of conflicts of priorities and culture. For start-ups and small to medium enterprises the challenge is often in the form of not having all the right types of resources, capabilities and processes under one roof that is ready to go without having to incur large learning costs and risks.


At Design Tower we solve these problems by providing top intellectual and financial capital that interacts in unique and agile ways to quickly and effectively produce commercially viable new technologies at a low risk and cost. Therefore, to greatly increase your chances of attaining new technology commercial success contact us today.

Marketable R&D

Design Tower has extensive experience in taking an early stage technology idea from a lab and workshop bench and bring it up into becoming a much-needed commercial application.


Our team of scientists and engineers will do the further research and overcome the technical roadblocks to advance the idea to a verified new level of desirable outcomes. In addition, our commercial experts will guide the process of discovery and delivery to produce a solution with strong commercial legs for one or many different marketable applications for internal business use or get it licensed and transferred to the right commercial partner on best possible terms.


Don’t struggle, get your idea of the bench and making money by using the experts at Design Tower. Contact us today.

Computer Simulations

Ideas need to be tested to eliminate risks, costs and time delays. They must also be tested to optimise designs to achieve greater user efficiency and effectiveness. Computer simulation technology permits a safe, quick and low cost means to test those ideas before they are fabricated into physical prototypes and items of use. 


At Design Tower we have access to large range of computer simulation applications that when combined with our high level scientific and engineering expertise enables us to produce the high-quality R&D intelligence clients need to get their ideas right and optimised. Our R&D teams can deliver top design analysis and advice in the following computer simulation areas directly from 3D CAD models:

  • Strain and stress analysis
  • Aerodynamic analysis 
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Heat transfer
  • Kinematics
  • Acoustics
  • Optics
  • Antennas and RF simulations
  • AR/VR Simulations
  • Mould Flow Simulations for Manufacturing


Need professional help to check and or quickly optimise your design ideas at low cost and risks? Then contact us today to get it done.

Prototyping & Testing

Computer simulations take you far to proving ideas but then you have to make a physical prototype to prove the technical principle works, the idea is ergonomically correct, its safe for use, and that it meets the aesthetic and emotional response you desire from customers.

  

Physical prototyping is produced for destructive and or non-destructive testing and analysis purposes, from which design ideas are made better and decisions to proceed to next steps can be validated and approved.

At Design Tower we have the scientific, engineering and regulatory expertise to:

  • research and design the right type of experiments, 
  • design and manufacture the right type of prototypes and testing setups at low cost, 
  • safely and objectively carry out the testing and measurements, and 
  • provide the essential high-quality feedback and documentation our clients need to prove, correct and or optimise a new technology and design for market and compliance to international quality and regulatory standards. 


If you need a professional new technology and product prototyping and testing service that will make a real difference to what you are trying to achieve then contact us today.

Intellectual Property Management

Generating intellectual property (IP) in the form of patents, trademarks, design rights and copyrights increases business value. Owning strong IP generates sustainable competitive advantage, this means it is very hard for competitors to imitate and offer worthwhile substitutes offerings. 


Failing to properly check an idea does not infringe the work of others and can be protected can result in significant losses in time and money doing work that was not valid and from potential litigation costs. Lack of protection and too much protection can also result in unnecessary risks and costs. Furthermore, inexperience in IP management could result in clients paying too much and cause escalating IP costs.


Design Tower has over 30 years of experience in generating, protecting and managing IP for businesses resulting in delivering sustainable competitive advantages and greater financial and brand reputation outcomes. We know how to maximise the upside of IP creation and management in conjunction with the right IP lawyer partner. We will do the research and financial metrics to make sure you only pay for the right type and amount of IP protection that is necessary to make good business sense. Furthermore, by being your IP hub we can quickly overcome any infringement and idea time wasting risks and act to optimise and increase your IP value.
