Industrial Design

Fusing creativity with innovation to develop user-centered designs that excite and drive revenue.

  • Product, competitor and trend research
  • Concept exploration
  • Form and design language development
  • Color, material and ergonomic studies
  • Workflow and user scenarios
  • Storyboards
  • Renderings and animations

Mechanical Engineering

Transforming ideas into tangible products through a true integration of design for manufacturability.

  • Extensive DFM (design for manufacturability) expertise
  • Vast experience with a wide range of manufacturing processes and materials including: sheet metal, metal castings, stampings and forgings, thermoforming and injection molding of plastic parts and assemblies
  • Mechanism design and optimization/advantage
  • Reverse engineering and 3D scanning
  • Complex 3D modeling and analysis
  • Material sourcing, process reviews and recommendations

Electrical Engineering

Leveraging the latest in technology to transform products into the IoT and connected world.

  • Design and development of: electronic circuits and systems, analog and digital circuits, micro-controller-based electronics including firmware development
  • Design and develop software that runs on Windows/Mac/Linux systems
  • Printed circuit board (PCB) design, layout and prototyping including full assembly and solder of prototyping bridge PCBs and surface-mount technology
  • Design, develop and review of schematics, BOM and Gerber files
  • Material sourcing, process reviews and recommendations

Prototyping

Simulating production at the prototype level, we verify designs using state-of-the-art prototyping processes and materials.

  • Proof of concept, functional prototypes
  • Appearance and form prototype models
  • Rapid prototype technologies (FDM, SLA, SLS, Polyjet)
  • CNC machined plastic, metal and composite prototypes
  • Sheet metal fabrication, welding, assembly and finishing
  • Cast urethane plastic and silicone parts
  • Thermoforming and vacuum forming
