The CAL FEA team is also available to support clients who have their own design capability and want to use FEA and design simulation to validate their designs or to offer optimisation suggestions. Naturally the Design Validation service can be a broad as the capabilities of FEA but in most circumstances the requirements are mechanical requiring the product to be assesed against load, force, pressure, heat, electromagnetic interference, vibration and any other physical stimuli that the product, or individual components, could be exposed to during its full life cycle.

Whilst mechanical engineering sits at the heart of most precision engineering the CAL Design Validation team is definitely not constrained to the mechanical arena, almost all solutions are equally assessed by our team of electrical engineers, electronic engineers, our system integrators, and increasingly our Software Development and Cloud Ops Teams are required to provide a provide a holistic review.
Additional services that the Design Validation Team can provide include;
- Optimising for Occupational Health: Providing designing support and advice for HSE material handling, operator safety and security aspects
- Heavy Machinery Conversion and Upgrading: Providing complete design and engineering support to upgrade heavy machinery such as providing new special attachments or modification for new functions.
In addition to all of the above CAL also has a specialist MedTech team bringing medical and Biotechnology specialisation support as required.
The CAL copyrighting team can also support with the broader legal/ Intellectual Property Rights considerations that often arise from an innovative design.
