Our software, Toffee, is an engineering design tool that automatically creates mechanical components for the engineering industry. It leverages a combination of artificial intelligence, numerical simulation, and sophisticated mathematical optimisation techniques to design components that outperform their existing counterparts.

By bringing numerical simulation to the cloud, we create immense opportunities for the design engineer. At ToffeeX we are at the forefront of developing numerical methods for engineering design. We bring cutting edge research to industry through our cloud platform. Utilising a microservice architecture we continue to integrate and deploy mathematical optimisation modules, machine learning solutions and geometric manipulation algorithms through our flexible software pipeline.

Working closely with our clients, some of the biggest players in their industries, we revolutionise the user experience and automation in engineering software. At the same time, we design our architecture to industry leading reliability and security standards, essential to highly sensitive projects.
