Design and Development

Manufacture of electro-mechanical input devices involves several different elements and processes. With our in-house expertise and capabilities, Devlin has the skills in place to produce what you need.

Mechanical Design

To enable our customers to better visualise what will be manufactured, we offer 2D and 3D modelling, using the latest SolidWorks software. To further represent the concept, we can 3D print your device using our in-house facilities.

Electronic Design

Devlin's multi-disciplined engineering team have extensive experience within all areas of electronics and over the years have developed a variety of products covering almost every industry. From hand-held meters for the plumbing industry, control panels for broadcast, to ultra-reliable keyboards for air traffic control.

Schematic and printed circuit boards are all designed in-house using the latest tools which includes 3D modelling of the completed boards, allowing the finished board to be incorporated into the 3D model of the mechanical design. 

The engineering team's skill set also includes embedded firmware and software application development , from bare metal programming to higher level languages such as C, C++, C#, Visual Basic.

The engineering team are familiar with a variety of communications protocols such as TCP/IP, USB, RS232, RS485 and many others. More recent product developments have included Internet-of-Things (IoT), OLED displays, magnetic card readers, bar code scanners, passport readers.

Rapid Prototyping

With a typical turnaround timeframe of 4 to 6 weeks, we can have Proof of Concept models to you promptly, ensuring your project continues at pace.

Electro-Magnetic Compliance

We have extensive in-house testing equipment, which ensures all devices made in our production plants adhere to our stringent quality standards. In particular, we have an in-house EMC chamber, as well as multiple supporting pieces of equipment, which we use for product certification to inform compliance.


Devlin offers the facility to design and manufacture bespoke plastic parts, whether it is a specific style of key top or a full enclosure. All the tooling design and moulding of parts is performed in-house, meaning Devlin has full control and responsibility for the manufacture, ensuring there are no issues with build quality.

Documentation, Packaging, Labelling

As well as the product design, Devlin offers the facility to provide custom documentation, packaging and labelling. For the packaging this could be a simple box design or be printed with a corporate logo. Documentation could be a product manual, installation guide or compliance certificate. Devlin can also provide custom labelling to meet a company's specific goods inwards requirements, such as barcoded data.
