The consultancy that Wilde provided for us proved highly beneficial because at tender stage it highlighted a discrepancy that we had ourselves anticipated. We were therefore proven to be correct.Axiseng M&E Ltd
The main driver for us is speed of delivery not cost. Wilde Analysis gave us expert advice in a very tight time frame. This meant that we had confidence to move forward quickly with the reworked design and potentially make massive savings in our tooling process.
Wilde gave us exactly what we were looking for. Their consultancy service confirmed some of the assumptions we were making and added value to the report to our client. It also increased our level of confidence in the recommendations we made to our client.
Wilde’s integrated scope of material testing, material modelling and model validation provides an excellent base for our FE analysis, allowing our in-house analysis team to focus on providing high-quality analysis of our products.
Dunlop Oil & Marine
We are very satisfied with the CFD consultancy project that Wilde completed for us, and found our contact with them very rewarding. The project deadline was extremely tight so we especially appreciated Wilde’s quick response, and the fact they completed the work to a very high standard even sooner than requested. Having an independent third party such as Wilde to validate our data provided important reassurance for our client.
MAHLE Industrial Filtration UK
MAHLE Industrial Filtration UK Ltd have worked with Wilde on a number of previous occasions where independent specialist knowledge, supported by the use of up-to-date computational techniques, were sought to support designs using conventional design processes.
... While the wind report was needed for planning, it was also very important to us to ensure that the design factored in the wind analysis to promote people’s comfort and safety within this development. This is an important factor which is too often slightly overlooked at early stages of planning and design.
Parkburn Precision Handling Systems
On completion of the design, Wilde, being a preferred partner of Parkburn, was enlisted to carry out independent verification. After specifying the design requirements and objectives of the analysis, Parkburn can rely on Wilde to provide reliable results in a presentable format ready for review by design approval agencies.
IAC and Wilde Analysis have been working together for several years now, and we at IAC know that our CFD and FEA work is in safe hands. The intuitive way the work is completed means IAC engineers can be confident of high-quality results delivered by Wilde on schedule.
This has been a very productive and informative piece of work from my point of view. It has shed some very encouraging light on the expected behaviour of the larger scale devices and I am very optimistic about the future of the concept. Thank you for managing to combine competence with charm, it’s been a pleasure. I do indeed hope to work with Wilde again in the future.
….thank you again for all your hard work with our project. We are very satisfied with the work produced and I am pleased that we have furthered our understanding of our product. I believe this is an important step in advancing our technical information and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
We relied on Wilde’s expertise to clearly define the objectives and scope of work for this RAMS GAP Analysis project and they did a very good job to help us.
The work completed by Wilde has been invaluable in enabling us to design and build an optimised solution for clearing ice and snow with gusto. The computer modelling and subsequent report was very thorough offering options for alternative design.
The consultancy project enabled us to spot errors that would have cost much more than the sum of the analysis itself. It enabled us to see things before we committed to them which is very beneficial, especially in terms of the high financial investment involved in the design of the larger components. It made sense to us to analyse these high value components, as the cost of modifying the tooling is so high.
I would just like to thank everyone at Wilde for the high quality FEA work on some new products we are bringing to market. Without doubt, the analysis helped us design a product that will outperform our original design. The engineers involved were most helpful, not only in delivering the work but also explaining the results and working with us on design improvements. I will certainly be using the service on future products we bring to market.
Precision Moulds & Tools Services
For us, the advantage of using Wilde’s consultancy services is that we can give our client confidence in the results that we present to them.
We were very impressed with how well the process went. Compared to our previous experience of product development / FEA with a prior company, we felt that the process with Wilde was much faster, with results expertly presented and proven to be accurate.
Pipeline Engineering & Supply Co.
The project fully met our defined objectives and gave us exactly what we wanted. I was particularly impressed with the Wilde engineer’s knowledge of materials – not many mechanical engineers would know so much about stress properties but he was very clued up on this. In terms of value for money, I would give Wilde ten out of ten
GE Oil & Gas
This project was a new venture for us, and ensuring the safety of the operators using this equipment was our key concern. The combination of clear, precise guidance and specialist technical expertise ....... enabled us to accomplish everything that we required.
Halliburton (Red Spider Technology)
Well executed, gives accurate level of confidence to start running simulations unaided... efficient …required minimal interface, but provided a pragmatic approach & interpretation (of results)
It was very useful to us to get a feeling for how the seal behaves from before fixing to fixed. We would certainly include this phase for future jobs where we plan to use straight tooling for manufacture.
Wilde have given a first-rate service enabling us to prove and improve critical design features.
We’d like to thank you for your help with this project. Getting such concise and helpful information back will ultimately help in our quest to buy the ANSYS software.
Contitech Oil & Gas
Wilde provided efficient communication with a cost effective approach within the timescale required to keep the project on target. The final report was delivered to both our client and Lloyds Register for third party approval. The team at Wilde gave excellent back up after the report had been delivered, answering any queries relating to the analysis that was raised by the third party body.
Forum Energy Technologies
Wilde quickly understood the analysis that needed to be done on the Forward Tooling Assembly and used their FEA and CFD expertise to develop a new design to optimise the efficiency of the new vehicle within the required time scales.
The job was delivered on time with a very proactive approach from their engineers. Subsequent tests on the machine have proven the model to be accurate and allowed the design to develop.
Wilde Analysis Ltd are a very professional and competent organisation and employees.
Esterline (Darchem Engineering)
Everything about Wilde exuded first class quality from the moment [they] came to visit us to listen to our requirements. Then using Wilde’s extensive experience to provide Darchem with advice on the most cost and time effective options available for the analysis, whilst retaining accurate and robust results. The end report, results and the time scale in which this was achieved, further confirmed Wilde’s quality of service.
Moltex Energy LLP
Wilde Analysis have been a pleasure to work with during this project, responsive to requests, delivering on time and at reasonable cost and providing good guidance as to optimal ways forward.
Many thanks for your contribution. By your diligence you have enabled us to proceed with confidence.
We have now installed the kiln jet and operated at nearly double the throughput. I’d just like to say thanks for the invaluable work that you carried out in helping us to hone the design to the final version that was installed and worked impeccably from day 1. It saved us a lot of trial and error on the production line with associated losses that would have been incurred.
Chesterfield Special Cylinders
... a key project that we had originally planned to do in-house, but our internal resources were pushed to the limit... passed it on to Wilde to complete at very short notice. They responded immediately & completed everything very quickly... They pulled it out of the bag very impressively & were the perfect solution to our difficulty. Added to that, Wilde provided excellent value for money compared to other companies that we have considered in the past.
Wilde’s ANSYS consultancy services had been recommended to us by another company. This was therefore the first time that we had used them and we were very satisfied with their work for us. They enabled us to meet our main objective, which was to provide independent clarification on our own calculations. Everything was done to the agreed timescale, and we were very happy with the level of communication.
Compressor Products International
We gained a lot from our visit and are in the process of putting it into action here at CPI. We hope and feel sure there will be future scope to work with you again on other projects that the company will be involved with and will look to contact Wilde as and when those projects arrive.
RMI Pressure Systems
Wilde’s consultancy work has answered many of our questions and cut down significantly on our testing time – fewer iterations mean less costs to us which has to be beneficial.
I was very impressed with the knowledge and tools available to us through Wilde and the accuracy of their first model predictions compared to my test results. This has already become a seminal piece of work that will underpin a significant future product development.
It was a case of us needing to get the job done quickly. Like many other companies, we don’t always have the skills and labour resources available to us in house, as our work flow varies.... If you have a good supplier, they become an extension of your business, in whom you can have confidence and rely upon when needed. This is where Wilde proves so useful to us; their engineers are really helpful, highly knowledgeable and very competent.
MAHLE Industrial Filtration UK
Wilde has always demonstrated a knowledgeable and professional understanding to our needs and have been able to quickly and thoroughly assimilate our requirements, and equally quickly produce the necessary results to support our design process and provide guidance on the solution(s) best suiting our needs commercially and technically.
Wilde quickly understood the scope of the analysis & defined precisely the engineering information that would be required....... The product design was modified on the basis of the analysis. Samples subsequently passed rigorous environmental testing including vibration & drop testing before the design was released for high volume production.…pleased with the time Wilde take to understand our requirements …used them on a number of projects.
Working with Wilde Analysis is a pleasure. They have the requisite skill, expertise and experience to contribute to the development of the solution. They are able to contribute at the research and development level and at the engineering design level, which is an important capability. As a business we have found them to be professional in their presentation and approach at all times.
Willerby Holiday Homes
... Willerby has worked closely with Wilde Analysis on new product development. The work has included in depth FEA and part optimisation studies relating to new product developments.... The work has resulted in excellent opportunities to reduce component part count and material content. Due to the success of this partnership, it is highly likely that further studies will be conducted between the two organisations going forward.
Edincare Pumped Drainage Systems
We are very happy with the service that Wilde provided. Their consultancy work for us offered us peace of mind that investment on our part in tooling is worthwhile and meets the functional brief.
... without the training & modelling techniques developed by Wilde, it would have been extremely difficult to predict the behaviour of the IR pre-heat oven. ... professional and exceeded the requirements set in the original brief, with extensive communication via meetings, e-mails and telephone conversations.
atg UV Technology
Thank you for the very speedy delivery on our project. In general I find Wilde very responsive to our needs and this is very much appreciated!
[Wilde engineer] attended site to get an appreciation of SSE’s business at Smurfit...... was professional in getting the information at the site and has spent time on the computer system to follow up on this. [He] is giving me peace of mind in the fact that if anything goes wrong we will have the information to hand to back up all our safety systems in one location – the safety file.
Wilde was instrumental in the modifying of our existing design to ensure that performance met the specific & stringent customer requirements on this particular project. Without the modelling capabilities & advice/service provided by Wilde we would not have been able to identify the limitations in our current design in house, nor have been able to implement the required design changes that the CFD process identified as being required.
We always appreciate Wilde’s approach as working with them is very beneficial for us, both in terms of project costs & knowledge transfer. They are very open about the results, barriers & difficulties involved, & do their utmost to make sure the models are validated, which not many other companies would do. Wilde go to great lengths to produce the accurate results we need, that’s why we have developed a successful working relationship.
The particular assembly that was evaluated is fitted into what we would consider to be a severe application. The study based on the FE analysis results demonstrated that there were no areas that are significantly highly stressed which in turn gives confidence with similar designs fitted to less demanding applications. The study that Wilde performed for us gives us confidence to look for similar type of assistance in the future.
Global Gas Company
I was very satisfied with the end result and manner of analysis Wilde carried out for us, their input was invaluable to the project design review, they played a major part in obtaining our goal.
Wilde Analysis achieved everything that we asked of them, within the required timescale. The results were presented exactly as requested and we’re very pleased with the outcome.
Senior Aerospace BWT
I in particular found the briefing informative and your report was excellent in terms of depth, analysis and presentation.
