About

My company, Caradoc Design Engineering Ltd, provides a chartered engineering design, analysis and calculation service to meet your company’s technical, legal and safety obligations. My experience is drawn from years of experience in safety-critical engineering sectors.

I have led hundreds of engineering projects. Projects with huge diversity, from 40m long truss gantry cranes for nuclear applications to very large multi-axis robots for use in the investment casting industry. Brakes for Morgan and Formula Renault racing cars, to bicycle design and development. Innovative security fasteners to composite prop shafts for aircraft amongst a myriad of others. No project is too big or too small, too simple or too challenging.

My company uses Solidworks and Solidworks Simulation for our design and analysis work. I also use Mathcad Prime and Excel to produce automated calculations sheets. I am a chartered engineer and a member of the IET. My work is covered by professional indemnity insurance. Non-disclosure agreements may be signed and you can be rest-assured that none of your intellectual property will be shared without permission.
