Mechanical Design

Mechanical design is inherent to most products, from consumer goods, to electronics, to processing machinery. A good design is aesthetically pleasing, functional, and cost effective. A good product is one that your customers will want to buy. NMI uses good design practices and principles to bring your concepts to functional fruition, calling on experience in fields as far ranging as agriculture, food processing, materials science, and general engineering. Aided by the latest in CAD design software NMI will conceptualise, design and produce your ideas and products cost efficiently and time efficiently.

2) high labor cost and lack of labor in some areas

3) increasing stringent standards for food products requiring tighter more reliable inspection offered by impartial ‘machines’.

The NMI Design Solutions team have a large amount of experience in the area of product inspection and handling. Specific areas of interest include color, defect, firmness, sweetness and weight measurement and also packing systems. We employ a combination of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, vision systems, colour sensor technology, shock sensors, standard load cells etc. to make measure the required physical characteristics.

Power Electronics

Improvements in the performance of power switching devices coupled with advanced low cost DSP controllers is resulting in increasingly efficient, compact and reliable inverter based switching power designs. Key applications of power switching circuits include switch mode power supplies, solar inverters, wind turbine inverters, motor control for hybrid/electric vehicles. NMI has an active on-going research program into inverter design and the development of inverter control solutions for both solar inverters and 3-phase motor control.
