Design for Manufacture

ICEE’s engineering designers are familiar with the advanced technologies and practical demands of industries like telecommunications, broadcast, and data processing, as well as rail networks and highways, and – based on your specification – we will transform any of your fabrication requirements into reality.

Advanced Facilities

Modern Technology, Computer Aided

Our advanced computer-aided design facilities (3D CAD from SolidWorks) are directly linked to the computer-numerical controlled (CNC) machines on ICEE’s shop floor. This enables the practical delivery of a swift, efficient, and accurate design, coupled to make and test of prototypes, followed by rapid one-off or batch production.

Our Services

Multiple Solutions, Multiple Processess

  • Transforming your concept or design specification into production drawings
  • Optimisation of mechanical and electrical components layout within the enclosure
  • Procurement of any bought-in parts and products
  • Rapid prototyping of components, enclosures, and systems confirguration
  • Testing, prove-out, and certification
  • Provision of engineering records

Our design for manufacture service is used by many of our customers, across a range of industries.


Having the design specification of your fabrication requirements reviewed by us has a number of important benefits, including:


Without compromising quality, your specification or the functional performance required, we offer a number of technical methods aimed at reducing costs, including seeking to minimise part count and any re-orienting of parts to speed assembly.


We will value-engineer the design, ensuring it will be made the most economical way, using the least materials necessary coupled to lean manufacturing methods, thus delivering value-for-money to the customer and highly competitive pricing.


We will work to your deadline, however short, and in any case always seek the best ways to reduce the product development cycle, turnaround times and costs


Maximising compliance and safety, as well as being safe in the knowledge that your designs are faultless and will deliver the desired results without delays, and there won’t be unpleasant surprises and unexpected outcomes.

A Turn-Key Solution 

One service for all.

Our design for manufacture process is a key aspect of our Turn Key solution. Customers usually couple our design services with metal fabrication as well as enclosure manufacturing. Find out more below.
