Design Capabilities

We have the experience and software to handle all design requests from "napkin sketches" through production manufacturing. Our engineering experience spans several industries including medical device, machinery design, power transmission systems, hardware/fastener design, stress analysis, flow analysis, and manufacturing process design. We have reverse engineered products that reduced costs and increased quality at the same time.

We utilize Solidworks design software to accurately design 3D models to customer specifications. We can then create fully detailed manufacturing prints and "sales" type renderings for communications with your customers. This is the same software that the large, high tech corporations use for thier design activities.

To translate our designs to the manufacturing floor, we utilize Mastercam CAM Software to transform our Solidworks models into a langauage the CNC mills can use. We have the full surfacing AND 5 axis milling modules to allows us to program virtually any shape.  This software is extremely reliable and accurate. It is also in use by the "big guys" and produces world class results.

All of our job tracking and process control is handled by JobBoss software. It is a powerful job control software developed specifically for the Job Shop Industry. It allows us to accurately track all activities within our shop in real-time and with pinpoint accuracy. This translates to excellent on-time delivery results and full traceabilty of our processing. We have been audited by customers who have FDA, ISO and FAA certifications and have been awarded work that meets their stringent criteria.

We have developed a seamless design-to-manufacturing process that allows us to respond to your needs precisely and quickly. We have gone from a "napkin sketch" to a finished prototype in a few days.
