Industrial Design
& Ideation 

The foundation for every great product begins with design and ideation. This is where the core functionality of the product is defined. What will it do? Who uses the product? What will it sell for? Why is this product better? What does it look like? These are the type of questions that get answered with industrial design and ideation. 
 

  • Market Research

  • Design Sketching

  • Concept Development

  • Color, Materials, and Finish (CMF)

  • Technology Validation

Mechanical Engineering

This involves everything that really makes each product work. Whether it's an individual part or a system of hundreds of moving components, mechanical engineering is the driving factor in most product's design and material selection. 3D models of the whole systems are made to ensure the product performs as expected. 
 

  • 3D CAD Modeling

  • Motorized Device Development

  • Movement Simulations

  • Dynamic Seals & Waterproofing

  • Testing Fixtures

Electrical Engineering

Many modern products some level of electrical components. Sensors, motors, battery management systems, power supplies, wireless connectivity, user inputs, and safety systems may all come together in a single product to perform its designed task. Reliability and safety are always a consideration throughout the process. 
 

  • Electromechanical Motorized Systems

  • Kinetic & Solar Power Generation

  • PCB Design & Prototyping

  • Wireless Connectivity

  • Systems Testing

Prototyping

3D printing has come a long way in the last decade. Costs have dropped and print material options have expanded greatly. Prints can be made with carbon reinforcement of living hinges, greatly expanding print applications and performance. Prototypes can also be polished for optimal aesthetics. 
 

  • High Strength 3D Printing

  • Nylon, Resin, Carbon Fiber, And Other Materials

  • Living Hinges

  • Polished Surfaces

  • Prototyped Electronics

Analysis & Testing

Testing is a critical yet overlooked aspect of product development. Time and effort put into testing saves time and cost throughout the product lifecycle. Complex products are broken down into subsystems to test functionality before testing complete systems. Early use case testing helps discover potential issues and solves them early. 
 

  • Strength & Dynamic Load Analysis

  • Materials Testing

  • G Force & Shock Testing

  • Subsystems Testing

  • Injection Molding Simulations 

Sourcing

Most products are a combination of custom parts and existing components. Whether its screws, motors, batteries, PCBs, springs, or even glue, it all needs to be sourced and tested. Specialized services such as waterjet cutting, EDM, Anodizing, casting, sintering, and others may also be needed in the production or development of products.
 

  • Component Sourcing & Testing

  • BOM (Bill Of Materials)

  • Advanced Manufacturing Specialities

  • Vendor Vetting & Validation

  • Domestic & International Sourcing

Tooling

Most products with custom components require the creation of custom molds to be made to reduce costs and increase production capacity. The part design needs to take into consideration the production technique and constraints involved in processes like injection molding. Molds can be made with a variety of finishes textures and performance can be controlled with material selections.
 

  • Mold Design & Machining

  • Domestic & International Production Capabilities

  • Eurethane, Aluminum, And Steel Mold Capabilities

  • Mold Flow Simulations

  • Material Selection & Testing

Manufacturing

From all the components sourced and custom parts made come together in the manufacturing phase. The assembly process must be taken into account from early stage design to ensure goal assembly cost and reliability. Quality control measure must be put in place on the components and assembled products.

  • Machining

  • Composites

  • Metal Fabrication

  • Domestic & International Assembly
