What no one tells you about R&D and SME’s

What no one tells you about R&D and SME’s

What do you think of when you hear the term R&D or Research & Development?  Do you think of a group of highly skilled, professionally qualified scientists or engineers looking for a breakthrough in technology?  You’d be partly right, but R&D is part of everyday life at Adcutech.

R&D represents the activities companies undertake to innovate and introduce new products and services or to improve their existing offerings.  R&D allows a company to stay ahead of its competition and add value to the service offered to its customers.

  • One R&D model is a department staffed primarily by engineers who develop new products – a task that typically involves extensive research. There is no specific goal or application in mind with this model. Instead, the research is done for the sake of research.
  • The second model involves a department composed of industrial engineers, scientists or researchers, all of whom have skills in technical, scientific, or industrial fields. This model facilitates the development of future products or the improvement of current products and/or operating procedures.

At Adcutech we are continuously looking for ways to improve our operating procedures and designing bespoke jigs or fixtures that enable us to manufacture your products in the most efficient and competitive way.

From the initial “request to quote” stage through to “part production” we will be discussing manufacturing methods, work holding scenarios and possibly even manufacturing a fixture designed specifically for your product.

Our engineers have the knowledge and skills to enable us at Adcutech to look at a drawing and identify the best route of manufacture.

Our investigations may need us to discuss the design with you in order to recommend possible changes to features that make the part more manufacturable and therefore more cost effective.

Research and development isn’t something only big corporations can do!

Collaboration can be a key element of any R&D project and is often crucial to achieving success.  If you have in house design capability but limited manufacturing knowledge then collaboration with Adcutech allows for the transfer of skills and knowledge, access to facilities, expertise, and potentially new ideas that may otherwise be out of reach of your business.

Engaging in R&D can help you strengthen your brand and reputation.  Collaborate with Adcutech, a trusted, reputable partner and allow us to help you develop an advantage over your competitors.
