The design engineering can be defined as “the process of devising a system, component, or process to meet desired needs. It is a decision making process (often iterative) in which the basic sciences, mathematics, and engineering sciences are applied to convert resources optimally to meet a stated objective”.
Engineers working at CG Engineering AS are able to make creative design solutions and respond constructively to challenging tasks. They have successful cross-industry experience in designing a variety of new products from inception to completion, from prototyping to commercialization, from simple part to complicated machine set.
We can design a product from the rough concepts and sketches or make improvements on old designs.
Finite Element Analysis
Finite-element analysis (FEA) is powerful tool to get rapid and proven conclusion about the structural strength. At a design stage we analyze behaviour of the model for all possible load cases. Playing with model parameters, we compare different options until the most effective solution is found.
FEA allows to reach an optimal ratio between weight and structural strength. If simulation is used at early stage of a project, it can save time and money in production and testing.
Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems
Dynamic Analysis helps our customers to study the dynamics of moving parts, how loads and forces are distributed throughout mechanical systems, and to improve and optimize the performance of their products.
Traditional “build and test” design methods are now too expensive, too time consuming, and sometimes even impossible to do. CAD-based tools help to evaluate things like interference between parts, and basic kinematic motion, but neglect the true physics-based dynamics of complex mechanical systems. FEA is perfect for studying linear vibration and transient dynamics, but way too inefficient to analyze the large rotations and other highly nonlinear motion of full mechanical systems.
Design of molds
We have designed a large number of molds of varying complexity from different materials (MDF, sikablock, metal, foamed polystyrene, plastic model). The molds used for manufacturing wide range of parts, such as panels of the interior and exterior of cars, yachts, airplanes, decorative elements and other facilities. Our engineers have large experience in this field, and can design the molds in short terms.
The molds used in different applications:
- Molding of fiberglass and composite materials;
- Thermal vacuum forming;
- Vacuum casting of polyurethane;
- Master models for decorative details and elements of interior;
- Control of geometry by templates
