Our past projects

Mould manufacturing for composite rims

For the development of their e-racing car, the EPFL racing team are manufacturing their own rims out of composite material. For laminating and curing of the composite, they have designed a two part mold out of epoxy tooling block. The Countdown Company supported the team by machining the mould according to their design. Collaboration...

Vacuum mould repair solution

Hilcona Gourmet SA, a company in the swiss food industry, was dealing with a damaged component on the production line. The Countdown Company offered a solution to save the expensive moulds. One of the main project constraints was the timing. The production is on almost 24/7, therefore a coordinated plan had to be established...

Deepfakes – Object Navigator

EPFL's laboratory of experimental museology (eM+) is preparing its next exhibition for the Artlab museum. “eM+ is a new transdisciplinary initiative at the intersection of immersive visualisation technologies, visual analytics, aesthetics and cultural (big) data.” The object navigator is a rotating platform carrying multiple screens with which the user can interact in a unique...

Torque Compensation Unit (TCU)

RUAG Space Mechanisms is a reference in the development of mirror actuators for in-orbit applications. In order to compensate for the torque generated by the flex pivot guiding the rotation of a mirror, RUAG Space proposed their client to integrate a Torque Compensation Unit (TCU). This mechanism has a similar behavior to a mechanical...

All Bliss

Our customer, AllBliss, needed a working prototype for their new cleaning device. We offered engineering support to bring their innovative idea to life. After understanding their needs and goals, we came up with a new CAD design. After a validation with our client, we launched the manufacturing phase. Thanks to our expertise in ABS...

Project Matterhorn

This project represents the beginning of our collaboration. It is the story of a student team from the EPFL who wanted to become one of the pioneer European university to participate to the Spaceport America Cup. The objective of this challenge is to design, manufacture, pack, ship across the Atlantic, integrate and launch a...
