Diagnostic Instruments

"Oliver performed engineering analysis tasks and design for me on two complex medical instruments. He defined forces, frictions, creep, failure modes, gearbox layouts, thermal characteristics, test schedules then selected materials and optimised designs.

He is dependable to get tasks done, and has a good attention to detail in his approach whether it is solving engineering problems and designs or managing third party manufacturers and suppliers.

It has been great having Oliver working for me and Iím sure there will be many instances when I shall call upon his services in the future."
