We work with amazing companies to develop life changing scientific products.​

Welcome to


Fewer Moving Parts is an engineering  and product design consultancy with a focus on improving lives. We specialise in realising ideas in the energy, consumer goods and medical industry, helping inventors and innovators take their concepts forward.

The consultancy is led by me, Tom Willshare, an IMechE Chartered Mechanical Engineer with over 14 years experience bringing products from concept to market, meaning I've had plenty of time to realise all the potential pitfalls so that you can save precious time and effort getting your product launch ready.


Our Services.

Product Development

We're experts in producing working prototypes, with experience across the Medical, Consumer Good and Energy Sectors.

  • Have you got a great idea for a new product, but struggle to get the hardware working?

  • Are you looking for funding but don't have a working prototype to show investors?

  • Are you trying to optimise a product for reliability, performance or manufacturing cost? 

We offer a range of services to help you solve these problems, from practical, actionable advice, up to complete design and build projects.
