Indemic was brought in mid-project to assist Mercer on the development of a 16L Autoclave due to insignificant in-house resource to meet the intended project deadlines. Taking what was essentially a box of bits, we worked up some very quick Industrial Design sketches then proceeded into CAD development, delivering our first fully operational prototype 8 weeks from initial contact. We proceeded through testing, validation, FEA and a further 2 prototypes. Indemic created concepts, CAD, full mechanical design including an entirely new latching system, manufacturing drawings and all documentation for certification and testing. The result is the smallest and lightest Autoclave in its class by nearly 30%, with significant reductions in servicing requirements.
