Some client case studies.
Inductosense has developed a wireless, battery-free sensor that can be permanently fixed to a product or structure for fast, repeatable inspections of cracks, defects or corrosion. The sensors can operate underneath coatings, insulation or repairs and can also be embedded into a material...
From Arduino to Market Place
Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone Black are all household names for the modern day entrepreneur, but are they actually a benefit to developing an electronic product? Or a headache for design consultants around the world?

HiETA Technologies 2016
HiETA Technologies Ltd is a product design, development and production company exploiting the new technology of Additive Manufacturing (AM) using Selective Laser Melting (SLM). Through this process components are “grown” layer-by-layer from very fine metal powders, which provides additional 3D design freedoms allowing HiETA to create more compact and efficient products than otherwise possible through conventional manufacturing techniques.
At the heart of Metryx business is the Metryx mentor range, which is an in-line process monitoring solution that rapidly identifies production wafer trends and excursions. Monitoring the mass change for any process step is an effective in-line check, revealing the true wafer mean, while flagging the bad wafers.
Team Bath Racing Electric
Here at Cubik Innovation we are always keen to lend a hand wherever we can. We especially like helping out students, not just through intern and work experience opportunities, but also live projects.
Switchee Ltd is a Bristol & London based company that has developed a smart thermostat solution that is aimed at social housing to reduce energy bills.
The intelligent device learns the routine of the household, knowing when the house isn’t occupied, and turns on or off the heating accordingly. The device does not require complex interaction or configuration for the user and allows valuable data to be gathered remotely.
Smart Coin Saving with The Time Key Money Box
Variations of money boxes, piggy banks and coin jars have been part of domestic life since ancient times, used first as a necessary tool in the absence of banks, as a helpful aid to teach children financial literacy and in recent times a way of saving funds for everything from a new car to a dream wedding. They have transitioned from modest terracotta urns, sterling silver steam trains, novelty pigs and back again.
Leocycle: Using smart technology to identify a lethal biohazard
Cubik Innovation have a history of engineering electronic systems which deliver key improvements in public health and safety whilst limiting environmental impact. Last year we partnered with a local Smart Facilities Management start-up to create a device capable of detecting the risk of Legionnaires’ disease in hospitals, hotels, offices and other public buildings requiring compliance to ACoP L8.
Triggertrap Ada: Motion, Light, Sound, Camera, Action!
Cubik were first introduced to Triggertrap back in 2013 when the Design Programme, an advice service tailored to assist start-ups throughout the often turbulent product development lifecycle initiated a meeting, with a view to forging a design and manufacture partnership. At the time a fledgling company ourselves, we were delighted to have the opportunity to meet one of The Guardian’s voted, leading tech start-ups and keen to get our teeth into a brand new project.
Cubik Christmas Card
The 10th December, and the first signs of Christmas began to appear, garlands hung round the chrome bannisters of the Science Park’s stairwells, Cliff Richard popped up in the afternoon on the Cubik radio and a small Christmas tree had found its way on to the top of the filing cabinet. Christmas cards began to line the pigeon holes and it suddenly dawned on the team we hadn’t yet thought about the Christmas cards we would send out this year. After such a successful year, it seemed too little to send out a witty e-card or buy up the best Sainsbury’s had to offer, so we had the novel idea, to design and manufacture our very own electronic Christmas card.
Here at Cubik Innovation we are very fortunate to have the opportunity to not only work on some brilliant projects but also with some very interesting customers.
Our customers can be at any stage of development and Cubik is perfectly placed with its variety of skills sets and previous knowledge to adapt to any project, no matter how unusual.
Laser XY Table Case Study
Team Music offer a laser engraving service for their customers, typically engraving personal messages onto brass instruments. The CAD-CAM laser that was being used for this service did not produce results that were of satisfactory quality. The laser implemented two mirrors used to position the focal point of the laser. These mirrors introduce errors due to variable beam angle and distance.
Aquabar Case Study
Aquabar approached Cubik with an idea for an inflatable flood defence system. They had a simple mechanical rig that they inflated with an electric tyre inflator. Aquabar wanted a proof of concept solution that would show the possibility of automated inflation. They wanted to activate the device automatically when the property becomes under threat from flooding.
Trigger Trap Case Study
Triggertrap approached Cubik when their manufacturing partners in China let them down. Cubik were able to step in and save the day. A test rig was required to provide end of line testing and Q&A. This needed to be produced with a very short turnaround so as the manufacturing process was not stalled
Spray Cam Case Study
London based advertising agency Lean Mean Fighting Machine approached Cubik with a rather unusual and urgent challenge. Having proposed to their client a camera attachment to be mounted on a hair-spray can for London Fashion Week, they rapidly needed the idea executed and in use on location within three weeks as part of an advertising campaign.
