Create Value

Prototypes prove the concept.  Value engineering optimizes quality, cost, and time.  Tooling optimization meets the volume and quality needs.  Worldwide sourcing provides scalability as your product success grows.  

Result = best value

People, Product, Process

People

Our team of experts consist of mechanical, electrical, metalurgical and software engineers.  We typically have over 20 years of industry experience which means "Been there done that".   

We use value engineering techniques to optimize the designs.  Then we validate using analysis tools, prototypes, and proof of concept models to make sure the requirements are met.

It is not the cheapest engineers that create successful products.   The best value comes from experienced professionals.

Product

Requirements are the beginning of a new product.  What does the product do?  What conditions is the product used outdoor/indoor, temperature, humidity?  How long will the product last?  What are the saftey concerns?  We use a requirements to make sure all work is planned, efficient, and effective.

Some of our most successful projects are when we take an existing design and make it better.  Cost reduction, added functionality, or faster processing all increase the value of a product in the marketplace  Often, these efforts provide a 100x return on investment.

Process

We follow a phase gate product development process.  This allows for frequent reviews, requirement changes/flexibility, and best use of development funds.  This also means we can work with you as much or as little as needed.

Communication is essential for successful product development.  We use the cloud to communicate secure, real time status of all our projects.    We've been told, "We communicate better with you than with people down the hall!"    Through the use of internet technology, product design is tracked, managed, and produced.

Areas of Expertise

Metals

Experienced in the design and fabrication of steel, aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, gold, silver, plating, painting, welding, machining, and assembly.  

Plastics

Designed over 200 plastic parts and tools.  Experienced with multi cavity and multi shot molds.  While most of our products use polycarbonate or ABS, we work with all grades including exotic bioabsorbable plastics used for medical products.

Elastomers

Rubber molded products using compression, transfer, and injected molded elastomers.    We also work on miniturzation where micro molding is essential to our solution.

Prototypes

3D printing is all the buzz now.  We've been doing it since 2000.  SLA, SLS, FDM, machined prototypes, sheetmetal, and metal coated plastics.

Design

Design brings together all elements of  function, asesthics, proof of concept, manufacturing, assembly, servicing, to end of life.

Assembly

Our partners can assmbly your product in the USA or worldwide.  This ranges from making printed circuit boards to full product assembly, inspection, and validation.
