In a recent interview, Timothy Habermacher explained the cooperation with our friends from Project Circleg, highlighting the importance of an interdisciplinary approach between designers and engineers. As a consulting partner, Radiate has supported the team of Project Circleg in structural questions and challenges in the field of FEM simulation and optimization as well as design for manufacturing aspects of the prosthetic system.

ETH Spin Off QZabre specializes in quantum scanning microscopes that provide new capabilities and unmatched performance in the quantitative magnetic analysis of nanoscale surfaces and device elements. Originated from the Spin Physics group of Prof. Christian Degen at ETH Zurich, QZabre’s products are the result of several years of dedicated research and development.
Radiate Engineering is happy to support QZabre in the future in the fields of product development and engineering.
Radiate Engineering & Design is happy to welcome two new team members!
First up is Mr. Jan Schenker, a talented CFD Simulation Engineer with a lot of experience in the aerodynamics at the highest level of motorsport, the Formula 1. There, he learned to push the boundaries of technology to maximize the performance. A lesson he will put to good use for the ambitious projects waiting for him at Radiate.
Secondly – and also with a background in the automobile sector – Mr. Gleb Kopylov joins Radiate as a Mechanical Engineer. Gleb honed his skills of CAD and FEA by designing and improving components for light sport aircrafts at CSA and by developing strength and failure analyses of elevator components at Schindler. He also worked as a System Engineer at Volkswagen Slovakia.
In their free time, both Jan and Gleb like to ride their bikes and spend time in the outdoors – needless to say, both activities go very well with the Radiate team.
Radiate welcomes the two new members and wishes them well with their efforts.
DroGone – the Drone-Catching Drone – is a project that aims to address the rising public security threats with regards to drones.
The ETH focus project from various students differs from current anti-drone systems in the retrieval aspect. While most try to damage and thus crash the enemy drone, DroGone tries to retrieve it in one piece. This makes it possible to engage with enemy drones in public settings, e.g. over open-air festivals, large-scale sporting events, etc. without risking injury of citizens by debris.
Radiate Engineering has been supporting DroGone as a Sponsor and is happy that the students gave their final presentation and successfully launched DroGone!
Mattis Stolze from Radiate Engineering is giving a talk about “Advanced Prototyping” on November 18th as part of the Lean Startup Zürich group.
The Lean Startup Zürich Meetup group is a community who is passionate about sharing knowledge on the application of lean methodologies in start up and existing companies, big and small including and beyond software and web development.
The event takes place at Liip, Limmatstrasse 183 in Zurich and starts around 6:30 pm.
ABSTRACT “Advanced Prototyping”
The talk focuses on Prototypes are essential for communicating ideas, testing hypotheses, and designing products. Prototypes tackle simple or complex problems, make use of paper and cardboard, 3d printing and cnc milling. There is no limit. This talk will dive into more advanced means, that enable us to invest crucial functions and hypotheses, decisive for a success of the envisioned product. By looking at real world cases, digital and analog means are examined. We take a look at pretending prototypes, cad models and mechanical prototypes, which all share a relative simplicity, low costs and a high learning potential for quick learnings.
SPEAKER: Mattis Stolze
Mattis works as consultant and development engineer at Radiate Engineering. He combines design thinking and mechanical engineering, tackles real world problems and mentors students at ETH Zurich.
6:30 pm Doors open & networking
6:45 pm Introduction to the Lean Startup Framework
7:00 pm Presentation followed by discussions
8:30 pm Networking
10:00 pm Closing
In Germany, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) initiated the Competence Atlas Lightweight Construction in 2016. Via the interactive portal, organisations can present their processes and activities and companies and research institutions can search for tailor-made lightweight construction competences in all german speaking regions. As of today, Radiate is also listed in the lightweight construction atlas with a profile as one of only 5 companies out of Switzerland.
On April 17th Radiate Engineering hosted an Apéro at the in-house Prototyping Lab. Around 40 people enjoyed a lively exchange alongside oriental food, drinks and snacks. Among the guests were numerous customers and business partners of Radiate Engineering, such as people from Fotokite, CADFEM, 9tlabs, Formpol, Tribecraft, Nose, CWA and Scott.
We would like to thank all our guests for coming and are already looking forward to the next Apéro!
The Zurich based Start-up 9T Labs is a ETH spin-off and focuses on 3d printing of carbon composites. They print industry grade carbon composites parts for series production. The goal is to help customers to capture the potential of carbon fiber additive manufacturing.
Radiate Engineering is part of the recently launched Beta Partner program and is excited to be using 9T Labs’ technology in order to identify possible use cases for future client solutions.
Radiate Engineering welcomes a new member to the team: Mr. Mattis Stolze.
As a trained Msc ETH with a focus on Product Development and Structural Mechanics, Mattis has in-depth know-how, which he has proven several times in cooperation with Helvetas and in his work in technical product development for the structural-mechanical design of wind turbines.
But Mattis can do even more: thanks to his experience in Innovation Management (leading many Design Thinking Workshops at Spark Works and Spark Labs) and as an Innovation Coach at the ETH Zurich, Mattis ideally complements the Radiate Team in the area of Innovation Consulting.
Next to his work at Radiate, there will be hopefully enough time left for ski tours and climbing for the passionate mountaineer.
Welcome to Radiate, Mattis!
Ten students of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich have set themselves the goal of developing a carbon frame for motorcycle racing. The final motorcycle will be shown at the Swiss Moto in February 2019. With the new carbon frame monocoque concept, the students also take part in the “MotoStudent” competition, a student competition in motorcycle racing. The project, which started in September 2017, examines how the advantages of carbon fiber can be combined with the requirements of a motorcycle frame, since a motorcycle chassis, despite the required rigidity, also has to offer a degree of flexibility, especially in inclined positions. In racing, although several attempts have been made to produce frames made of carbon fiber laminate, but ultimately returned all providers back to chassis made of steel or aluminum. By contrast, carbon frames and chassis are indispensable in bicycle construction and the automotive sector.
Radiate supports the project as a silver sponsor with, among other things, technical know-how and benefits in kind. We wish the ETH Moto Racing Team every success!
