EnCata is a ONE-STOP-SHOP for design, engineering development, manufacturing and Engineering Consultancy services, working with technology startups, corporate sector and SMEs.
Such a unique combination of engineering talent pool and word class industrial prototyping facilities under one roof enables EnCata to tackle multidisciplinary projects, performing technology transfer and development of bespoke designs and engineering solutions in hardware.
Managing product lifecycle is crucial for companies to perform in the 21st century. Solving complexity of product development is about bringing together a number of expertise such as business analysis, engineering, market research, UX/UI, industrial design, manufacturing, digital and physical experiences.
Product development with EnCata is a thrilling experience of enabling innovative business models, discovering customer needs and finding market opportunities through our technical thinking and experience.
Engineering design of any hardware product, mechatronic system, vehicle or a simple enclosure entails several stages such as technical analysis and discovery, concepting, 3D CAD modelling and 2D drawings that can be used for mass-production with any OEM manufacturer.
We employ the best engineering practices which allow us to design reliable products within specification, physical and user experience constraints.
EnCata offers development of custom PCB layouts, PCB modelling in 3D, embedded systems and FPGA design, IC design and power electronics, electrical engineering and industrial automation.
Over the 100+ projects we’ve completed, we delivered custom electronics for a variety of applications, including IoT, consumer products, robotics, medical devices, aerospace and navigation, automotive and developed complex solutions for a range of industrial applications.
EnCata is somewhat unique in having in-house world class industrial prototyping facilities and wide range of CNC machinery in the same building with the design office. Such LEAN set-up allows faster time for prototype manufacturing, design validation and assembly, ensuring the design documentation is timely updated.
We embrace DFM approach where the design engineering team is deeply involved in prototype production, assembly and testing. This allows to timely update documentation and BOM, ensuring our clients receive both the prototype and validated documentation, a 3D model and CAD 2D drawings.
Batch manufacturing is somewhat challenging for most of the hardware startups and companies since it takes a series of steps similar to a large manufacturing process, but requires flexibility in execution.
Being a true LEAN manufacturing workshop we employ ‘cart production system’ learned from Toyota Production System (TPS) which ideally suits the low-volume production. Such an approach ensures a very good quality control, as quality is embedded in the production ‘flow’.
Past batch-production phase, we are offering mass-production consultancy services to our clients, helping them to smoothly scale up manufacturing volumes with our trusted network of OEM companies in Europe and Asia.
We offer support in BOM optimisation,further DFM, procurement,logistics, packaging and negotiations with the volume producers.
Industrial design is intrinsically embedded in our product development process, since the engineering concept development and electronics put much constraints for the future product shape and form. However, exercising industrial design at an early stage can be a good strategy in efforts of testing target audience, customer development and pitching investors.
Creating industrial design of your future product with EnCata’s multidisciplinary team whether it takes the form of graphical sketches, bespoke CAD model or engineering concept, helps to bridge the gap between the world of art and fine engineering.
Whether you need to validate, evaluate or review your design, concept, 3D model, BOM, drawings our experienced manufacturing, mechanical and electronics engineers are ready to help.
Our engineering consultancy service will allow you to critically reassess your project and help reaching your goals keeping the process LEAN and cost-effective.
