mechanical engineering

At outerspace our mechanical engineers explore mechanical concepts and determine the technical feasibility of our ideas.

As mechanical problem solvers, they design and engineer how products work and how we can manufacture them.

Our engineers use creative methods to explore mechanisms and electrometrical approaches and document and specify using engineering standards and reviews. By verifying and testing designs, they mitigate risk for the users of products we develop for clients.

Mechanical engineers on our team make sure designs are safe and reliable by using mock ups, models, prototypes and test rigs. They review how product parts fit together and design for mistake proofing.

Our engineers have a deep understanding of physics, materials, manufacturing and assembly processes, product and part reliability, durability and quality control.

Using various forms of analysis, including computer assisted engineering, they document mechanical specifications, and review and optimise designs to help reduce design iterations.

They calculate reliability and durability, understand how we fit product parts together with tolerance analysis and fits.

They create technical documentation, manufacturing and assembly drawings, and assist with verification, testing plans and external product certification for our clients.

We designed and engineered the device to be very simple, lightweight, strong, easy to use, portable and affordable.  Considering all door types and sizes, we configured SecuraDoor to fit onto any doorknob and to adjust to varying doorknob heights.
