Scientific product design
Scientific product design has been a core part of Crucible's work since 1990. We have developed successful new products for many of the scientific instrument companies in the Thames Valley, including Oxford Instruments.
We believe that scientific products need to be totally reliable, durable and efficient, but not boring. New production processes make this possible at very small production volumes.
Crucible has a particular expertise in sourcing appropriate production processes for the low volume, high value products that typify this sector. We have an excellent network of specialist suppliers from conventional areas like sheet metal work and PU foam moulding to new technologies like 3D printing, which we have been using as a production process since 2004.
