Design for manufacturing

As experienced manufacturers, we know the value of addressing manufacturing, quality, and cost early in the design process. Concurrent engineering practices, Pugh analysis, and state-of-the-art design tools allow us to assess every part of a product or assembly as we go. As a result, we can deliver a robust product with significant gains in concept-to-production time.

Prototyping and development

We design the manufacturing process at the earliest stages of development using tools such as 3D printing and rapid prototyping. Our dedicated prototype manufacturing group allows us to move directly from CAD models to metal machining. Alpha sample parts can be available in days from dedicated, production-like machines and validated and delivered in a matter of weeks.

Testing and validation

Our fully-equipped testing lab allows us to quickly instrument, test, and validate individual components to full systems. By aligning our Design, Validation, Plan and Report (DVP&R) to the FMEA, we develop focused test plans that provide for quick product validation. Onsite capabilities, including instrumentation, bench, hydraulic, and full system testing, means results are immediately actionable, improving design iteration time and accuracy.
