We are world leaders in the provision of advanced engineering analysis consultancy services to the valve industry.

If your valve project presents a profound technical challenge, or you have a tight deadline that your in-house team, despite their best efforts, can’t meet, we can help.

Our pioneering Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis methodologies will mitigate your technical risk, improve your product performance, shorten your development timescales and reduce your development costs.

Working with our valve clients over the last two decades, we’ve seen some brilliant people do some simply amazing things. We’ve also seen those brilliant people hampered by inefficiencies in the actual process that they follow: Engineering often ends up being done twice; once to win the work in the first instance and then again to deliver the work after the order lands, Engineering hours always seem to overrun, and Engineering sits on the critical path of delivery.

Our ‘Process Optimisation’ service offering will fix these issues.

Process optimisation allows you to create a standard set of design rules within a single source of truth, it eliminates manual errors and costly rework, it maximises the utilisation of your less experienced engineers, and it frees up your more experienced engineers to focus on more added value tasks. Process optimisation improves accuracy and it creates consistency. When you improve accuracy and you create consistency, you deliver a better result, in less time for a lower cost.

We can apply process optimisation to your business in two ways:
1. We can automate a series of small discrete steps in isolation, such as initial sizing calculations, analysis post-processing and report writing, or
2. We can look to fully integrate and automate a significant proportion of an entire process.
By making the time, then taking the time, to sit with you to understand what you do now, we will be able to identify the best process optimisation route to follow.
