Paul Mutti - Principal Engineer

Paul has considerable experience of medical product design, as well as aspects of packaging and electronics. A SolidWorks expert, he has implemented and manages Coalesce’s CAD and data management systems and is particularly adept at managing the interaction between 3D CAD and PCB design software. Paul played an instrumental role in developing Coalesce’s quality system and in achieving ISO 13485 certification.

Since 2002 his main focus has been the design of medical devices. This has included technical authoring, specification and report writing, mechanism and component design, risk analysis, tolerance analysis, design verification testing, jig and fixture design and procurement, all within a regulatory framework for clients such as Vectura, Plextek and GSK.

He started his career in specialist packaging design, before moving into mechanical & production engineering as an independent consultant, working at companies such as Lucas and Cincinnati Milacron. For 15 years prior to helping to found Coalesce, he ran Mutti Contracts, a Cambridge-based product development consultancy.

Paul and his family live on a smallholding where they rear livestock. When he’s not rebuilding his mini-digger or coralling escaped sheep, he finds time to play in his local squash league and also occasionally takes part in 4×4 off-road trials.
