This 2020 Good Design Award of the Year winner is a prime example of what is possible when cutting edge design meets manufacturing at an earlier stage of involvement. This project is a collaboration between Headsafe, 4Design, LXGroup, Vestech and Threegon.


DFM started in October 2018


The pressure was intense from the getgo transitioning CAD designs to Tooling, T0 samples and eventually trial units for regulatory testing. Additional challenges were met when considering the sub-assemblies had an IP rating to conform to, meaning the DFM had to take into account surfaces that would later become potential ingress points for water and dust. 

This project required 30 sets of tools and comprises around 75 unique mechanical parts.

DFM took around 4-5 weeks to complete for this very complicated assembly and by late December 2018, we had T0 off tool sample parts coming off our presses. A huge achievement by all involved.

Other Technology Triangle Successes

Below are just some of the products co-developed and manufactured by THREEGON.



When there is a passion to constantly improve the taste of coffee, many ideas are put to the test and very often it culminates into a new method of preparation.  In some cases, it involves building new tools that never existed and extensive taste testing to back up the claims made with science.  



These were some of the first products developed and launched in 2005. The tools are still going strong in the market place. It is a testament to the design, engineering and manufacturing development behind these tools that made them the most advanced professional taping tools on the market, even until today.



The mobile phone accessory market moves fast with product life cycles measured in months. These projects required laser like focus to ensure tooling lead times were met and high volume production targets could keep up with demand.
