Mechanical Design

We're experts with the latest 3D CAD software, and we deliver quality drawing packages for the machines and products we develop. We also provide design services as needed to support your operations. Machined parts, castings, forgings, weldments, sheet metal parts, plastic injection molded parts, 3D printed parts, complex assemblies... the list goes on! We've worked with machine shops, fabricators, forge shops, production facilities, woodshops, and all sorts of people who make things. We've also worked with businesses and individuals looking to get things made. Either way, we provide effective design ready for the shop floor, and can offer additional solutions for manufacturers - nesting studies for waterjet/plasma/laser, CAM for CNC machining, custom tooling, mold design, and more.

The Latest CAD

We use the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection for all our design work, so we use Autodesk Inventor for CAD. We can quickly create concepts, explore design iterations, and then take care of the details. Built in are a number of design tools for every type of project:

Kinematic analysis tools for mechanical power transmission
Fast assembly tools for common machine components
Visualization tools for quick renders and animations
Inventor Moldflow for plastic injection molding analysis
Advanced surfacing for consumer products and plastic parts
Sheet metal tools
Weldment tools
Frame generation and analysis
Pipe & tube routing
Wire & harness tools
Tolerance analysis tools
FEA for strength, deflection, fatigue, and advanced nonlinear studies
CFD for fluid flow, cooling, and hydraulics
Factory design utilities

Along the way, you'll get regular updates with interactive online design reviews, where you can see the design in your browser as it progresses.

Integrated Manufacturing Tools

We also use specialized software to bring your design to life. Inventor Nesting optimizes material yield for 2D cutting operations. Inventor HSM CAM software allows us to program full 5 axis CNC toolpaths for both our machines and our client's. We can go from design to manufacturing quickly and cost effectively.

Mechanical Design

CAD is just a tool and drawings are just the last step - there's a lot more that goes into a successful design. That said, our drawings are always clean, easy to understand, and optimized for efficient manufacturing.

Electrical & Mechatronics

Often mechanical and electrical go hand in hand. We have experience with motion systems, motor sizing, control systems, operator interfaces, custom PCBs, consumer electronics, and more.

Under Construction

Kinematics / Simulation

A kinematic study is essential in machine design to verify design intent. It's also useful to communicate complex designs to stakeholders, technical or otherwise.

Under Construction

Injection Molded Parts

Injection molded parts are accurate, lightweight, inexpensive, and able to be mass produced. We develop part designs ready to go to the mold shop. We can also check fill times, projected part quality, weld locations, cycle time, and more to optimize the design.

Explore

Weldments, Sheet Metal, & Castings

We're experts at designing multi-step production parts requiring careful planning. Hierarchical drawing packages detail castings (and patterns), complex weldments, and sheet metal assemblies at each stage of manufacturing.

Under Construction

Jigs, Fixtures, & Gauges

Just tell us how you need to assemble, hold, or measure your part and we'll design and build a custom solution for your production team. With a fast turnaround and integrated precision machine shop, we look forward to saving you time and money.

Under Construction

Custom Tooling

Forge & trim dies, bend tooling, custom cutters, roll dies, sheet metal stamping, molds and patterns - our team has designed and manufactured all sorts of completely custom tooling. Save money with efficiency gains and short payback periods.

Under Construction

Reverse Engineering

We can generate CAD data from existing parts or assemblies and use them to apply design improvements, create visualizations, or produce new drawings. Using either manual measurements or a CMM Romer arm, we can capture any geometry.

Under Construction

Prototyping

Many of our designs are 3D printed to verify fit and function before money is spent on tooling. We can have a prototype made in a day, and quickly iterate on designs. Our machine shop can quickly produce production quality prototypes as well in plastic or metal.

Under Construction

Machine Shop

In addition to producing parts for machine builds and product prototypes, we also offer low volume production for products or parts that fit our shop's machining capabilities. Click through for a list of our machines.

Visualizations

Present new product designs to stakeholders early with photorealistic renders, or market products before they're manufactured. For industrial projects, we can use visualizations to communicate design features or machine operation.

Under Construction

Virtual Reality

VR in design and manufacturing? Trust us, it's amazing! Walk through your new production floor months before it's built, explore a new machine concept from the inside, and so much more. With our mobile VR equipment, we'll come to your office for a design review unlike any other.

Under Construction

Finite Element Analysis

We use Inventor Nastran, a top tier FEA package, to perform a number of advanced analyses: linear & nonlinear static, buckling, modal, transient response, frequency response, shock/drop tests, fatigue, and heat transfer.

Under Construction

Computational Fluid Dynamics

We use Autodesk CFD to analyze fluid flow and heat transfer for electronics cooling, hydraulic or pneumatic products, free water surface effects, and HVAC room designs.
