Design, develop, manufacture and market...
...these are the core values and processes within ISC. Although only a relatively small global player, we are independently owned and managed. This has allowed us the flexibility to exploit embryonic markets, remain at the forefront of product innovation and invest in cutting edge technology.
Product design, development and prototyping lie at the centre of activities at ISC. We have invested heavily in engineering and design personnel, specialist modelling software and high-specification machinery. Such investment is ongoing. Concepts can be brought to market via different routes, but there is an established methodology in place, which involves project milestones such as:
Fit and function tests via 3D Solidworks Modelling, to validate against intent Aesthetic and Handling Tests via Fused Desposition Modelling (FDM), to validate against expectation Performance Tests via initial Low Rate Pre-production (metal-cut) samples, to validate against international standards and commercial reality Thorough productionisation means that products are supplied to market via the right manufacturing routes thereby allowing us to remain competitive whilst still with more than half an eye on function and aesthetics. There is no reason why when engineers and marketers work together they can’t produce products that work brilliantly well and look stunning too.
Continuous product improvement can be brought about by internal review, perhaps by changes to material or process, but often improvements are brought about by listening to market feedback. We believe we are good at that - our marketing team is constantly exploring the marketplace and listening to customer feedback.
But the greatest advantage and the most fundamental part of our ongoing success is our team. From the people who develop the concepts to the guys who check every product we sell - it’s all about their competence and their diligence to ensure that ISC products are amongst the best in the world.
Product design & development are the core activities at ISC. We are constantly improving and extending our range to allow us to compete in the world market. The foundation for any design program is understanding, both from a user stand-point and of the market for which the product is intended. At ISC we have years of experience and product knowledge. We ensure that the design intent is destined not only to satisfy expectations, but to exceed them.
Prototyping provides an early opportunity to test and validate design intent, prior to commitment of any significant investment.
Our extensive in-house prototyping capabilities allow us to progress an initial sketched idea through to a production prototype. Leading Solidworks and Mastercam CAD software packages are used to create 3D models, working drawings, presentational imagery and production tooling.
Our highly skilled manufacturing department is where our innovative product ideas are transformed from raw material to finished goods, within our 25,000ft2 facility in North Wales.
Using some of the latest high speed CNC machines and advanced manufacturing strategies, ISC is ready and able to meet increasing sales demand as our company grows, and as we continue to increase the level of technology within our products.
Testing & Quality Control
At ISC we maintain rigorous product testing and quality inspection programs. We employ state of the art machinery, operated by experienced Quality Inspectors- a combination which allows us to present products of the very highest quality.
ISC is a certified SGS ISO 9001 Manufacturer. All ISC Products conform to the relevant industry standards, as certified by independent test houses.
