We’re often asked what differentiates us from other design teams and why our customers return year after year. Most often, the feedback is related to Passion, Process, and Thoughtfulness. Our engineers have a passion for unsolved problems. We do this for fun… it’s our Happy Place. We follow a First Principles Process of breaking down obstacles into their most fundamental pieces then Design, Prototype, & Test solutions one at a time before putting it all back together. Finally, we look at design details thoughtfully from different perspectives, how they integrate with other aspects of the product, and how they might affect everything from the material selection, manufacturing cost, assembly, reliability, customer experience, and beyond which ultimately leads to a quality product for our customers… and theirs.
Half our our facility is comprised of an extensive and versatile fabrication workshop to allow quick-turn prototype iteration using a variety of materials, equipment, and techniques. This allows our engineers to quickly test an idea or modify a component. Watch a video tour of the workshop. It also means our engineers fully understand how a part can best be made because they’re familiar with the tools to make it. We have in-house fabrication capabilities in SLA 3D printing, laser-cutting, CNC and manual machining, welding, woodworking, metalworking, and electronics, as well as vinyl cutting, sewing, thermoforming, and it’s always expanding.
