INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

WITH OUR PARTNERS

Paying close attention to the interaction between form and function, our team focuses on how your product will work in real-life applications by focusing on the end-user experience while creating and delivering esthetically pleasing results.

Our clients are a large part of this process, and we keep you in the know through the use of:

  • Insightful product research

  • Ideation and concept creation

  • Informative technical illustrations

  • Meaningful aesthetics and stylizing

  • Photorealistic renderings

 

MECHANICAL DESIGN

FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY

Our mechanical design team transforms your sketch into a manufacturable product using state-of-the-art 3D modeling software alongside complex analytical tools to further ensure your product's success.

We have a deep understanding of manufacturing techniques, pay close attention to detail, and utilize a methodical approach that guarantees a smooth handoff to manufacturing.

To ensure that your product is tried, tested, and true, we employ functional prototypes so we can deliver a complete, production-ready package.

MANUFACTURING

WE GET YOU THERE

Our team is prepared to jump in and support your journey at any point. From Prototypes to mass production, we can connect you with standard and custom parts through our well-developed supply chain and manufacturing relationships.

We can provide you with high-quality CNC parts, detailed 3D printing, vacuum forming, injection molding, sheet metal fabrication, and die casting, as well as recommend processes and vendors that meet your desired volume and cost targets.

We will get you into - or ready for - mass production by providing a complete product package based on your business plan and target market.

 

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

ON TIME | ON BUDGET | ON POINT

Your dedicated project manager will keep you updated with progress reports on a continuous basis to ensure your project is on schedule to meet your critical milestones while you focus on your core day-to-day business and marketing.

 

Working closely with our clients, we will detail our estimated cost to design, develop, qualify and transfer your product into production based on your project’s manufacturing strategy, budget, and timeline. We offer complete life-cycle management for production support and obsolescence.

Our team will ensure your product is designed to meet, or exceed, your requirements and your product goals. Multiple review cycles and verifications are performed along the way to ensure a robust design.

Our project managers will provide:
