We had a great day yesterday at our prototyping partners Iota Sigma in Wales. GBD have been working with Iota for over 20 years, so when we need a prototype for a tight deadline they pull out all the stops!

Yesterday saw us assembling our design for the new generation Waveblade tool to be shown (fully working!) at the Sea Works exhibition in Southampton the very next day. With some expert tinkering to the trigger mechanism by Iota’s team, we could control the exact feel of the tool actuation to get it working just how we wanted.

The tool handle is designed to rotate so it can be held behind or above the main body, so all the lever systems inside have to work in two positions. This was a highly technical prototyping challenge in a very tight timescale, but the experience of our team shone through and made for an extremely happy client!

If you’re going to Sea Works today or tomorrow, check out stand B21.
