Research and Development
Research and experimentation is a key element of our product development process. IDC frequently undertakes the development of test rigs to experiment and understand how to apply scientific and technical principles to new design applications.
Our well equipped laboratory is dedicated to analysis and testing work and, together with our on-site rapid prototyping workshop, allows rapid and focussed testing and iteration of new ideas as well as performance verification.
The technical knowledge gained in IDC’s laboratories has frequently resulted in patents for our clients.
Our team of designers and engineers have between them developed over one hundred patents for clients in diverse sectors including consumer products, medical devices, industrial machinery, renewable energy, packaging and business equipment. Our excellent track record of understanding intellectual property and developing new ideas enables our clients to access highly competitive and regulated markets with successful, innovative and patented products.
Through our experience in the highly patented field of medical device development, we have developed a process for clients which enables them to develop new and innovative products which avoid infringing competitors' IPR and which can be patented in their own right. The IDC process is built on a unique combination of technical knowledge, a familiarity and understanding of patents and the creative and inventive flair provided by our team.
