Jag design supports innovators, entrepreneurs and small business with innovation. Often the inventor or entrepreneur fails to understand how much time is involved in producing and developing a product from nothing. The simple fact of producing something that has never been made before is obviously going to be a learning process. It is wise and practical to be prepared and plan for issues that may arise during design, manufacture and the final launch of the product. One key benefit is that Jag can carry out is an Intellectual Property review as often at an early stage in the product development cycle it is important to identify if the idea infringes either an existing patent, design registration or trademark. Jag uses the latest Solidworks 3D CAD software to develop ideas from concept through to manufacture. We also have links to associate companies who can use the files generated at JAG to create prototypes. We also have links to test centres allowing all aspects of the products to be tried and approved before launch to obtain, CE marking, EMC testing etc.
