Flexible, skilled and innovative with many years of applied experience.
On Track Design Solutions (OTDS), know that our clients demand the best. The company uses the latest in CAD and engineering 3D modelling software from Siemens in the form of 'Solid Edge ST' to help in the production and development of the designs we produce.
This ensures maximum compatibility with our suppliers and clients, which in turn allows more scope and flexibility when applying our design expertise.
The software enables us to speed up the engineering design process from the initial idea or concept through to the completed product. This provides our clients with a virtual design prototype which is able to aid in both the review process and visualization of the product designed.
