Design for transformation

Using additive manufacturing beyond prototypes

Dr James Moultrie considers how manufacturers could be using these new additive manufacturing technologies more effectively for series production of components.

Design for additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies have resulted in significant changes to the way we design complex components. But the uptake beyond prototyping and small scale production remains slow.

Innovation by design

Linde Gases has designed a radical new valve for its gas cylinders, with support from the IfM's Design Management Group and IfM ECS.

Good design is a game changer

James Moultrie, Head the IfM's Design Management Group, argues that good design is just as important for industrial products as it is for consumer goods such as cars and electronics.

Why did they design it like that?

James Moultrie looks for universal appeal when beauty in is the eye of the beholder.
