Services & Process

Our innovative process is key to our clients’ success. Here’s how it works:

Step #1: The Idea or Problem

Innovation usually starts with one of two catalysts — a problem that needs to be solved or a great idea to be turned into something functional. From the get-go, ADC excels at listening and then getting things on the right path, with our well-oiled creative cogs whirring from the first email, meeting or phone call.


Step #2: The Round Table

Next step is meeting with the client for a detailed briefing to ensure we have all the facts together with expected outcomes. Unlike larger organisations, being a small team means we have the advantage of immediately allocating appropriate resources to the project and devising a winning strategy. No set processes or red tape – and the ability to be nimble and think outside the box!

Step #3: Creating the Concept

Once the idea has been solidified – our team moves in to conceptualise it. We use our experience and technical skills to get your creation into a workable format for the way ahead.

Step #4: Visualisation and modelling

This is the time to begin bringing words and ideas to life. Using advanced technical drafting and 3D-modelling software, ADC creates images and physical models that allow you to see and touch how your innovation will work and operate.

Step #5: Engineering Certification, testing and compliance

Certification, testing and compliance is part of ADC’s commitment to due diligence. We make things easy, advising on any documentation required and working with you to obtain engineering and other certifications.

Step #6: Patent Protection

With any good idea it’s always important to be sure it stays yours! As experts in the patent protection process, ADC can assist and guide you with your patent application.

Step #7: Factory and production sourcing

Sourcing manufacturers and specifying materials for a new product can be tricky – especially if you haven’t been down this road before. ADC can not only assist with advising on suitable materials, but we’re committed to sustainable solutions where possible. ADC works with a number of well reputed manufacturers both here and overseas and can connect you to get started.

Step #8: Information Compilation & Graphical Design Services

You now have your product produced and ready to go to market, but still need user guides or manuals, safety instructions, packaging and more — so what now? ADC’s in-house Marketing Specialist is on hand to organise these for you or to recommend suitable suppliers in your area.

Step #9: Marketing planning/Product launch assistance

Need a hand with marketing your ground-breaking new product to customers with a great event or creative material? Once again can do it all for you or help get you on the right track.


We have dealt with Rob from Advanced Design Concepts for a number of years and would happily recommend his services for any project whatever its complexity. When it comes to custom manufactured ‘1 off’ machines or improving existing equipment Rob is always willing to take on the challenge. Advanced Design Concepts is a pleasure to deal with and we have always been satisfied with the work they have done.
We at Protoblast Company have known and used Rob Davis of Advanced Design Concepts regularly for over 38 years. The attention to detail, the understanding and depth of knowledge of the engineering industry is second to none! All projects are undertaken professionally and delivered with precision.
Recently our business expanded capability to design, manufacture and install purpose built capital equipment. We needed experienced engineering support through the concept and detailed design stages and during onsite installation to accommodate customer changes and site specific requirements. Rob and the team at Advanced Design Concepts worked with us throughout the whole process, including liaising with the customer engineering team, to ensure we delivered a quality, fit for purpose solution that met customer expectations and complied with project specifications. We were particularly impressed with Advanced Design Concept’s creative input, technical knowledge and ability to develop solutions to meet our critical timelines.
