mechanical design

Any mechanism no matter how simple or complex can be realized and refined in computer aided design (CAD).  CAD allows for fast visualization of the mechanism's function and range of motion.

Materials Specification

Material selection and specification offers many metrics for product evaluation.  Accurate inputting of the materials properties gives weight, strength and appearance for a complete understanding of the choices.

Structural Analysis

Finite Element Analysis provides insight into the strength of the products design.  Based on industry standards or your own loading criteria analysis can be create to simulate existing conditions and evaluate improvements.

Proof Of Concept

The creation of a working model or prototype of the design to determine the merit of the product.  This can be a simple as paper cut outs and as complex as fully realized parts assembled into your product.

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing

(GD&T) is a system for defining and communicating engineering tolerances. It uses a symbolic language on engineering drawings and computer-generated three-dimensional solid models that explicitly describes nominal geometry and its allowable variation.

Design for Manufacturing

Development of production process specification, along side your vendor or production team, for the best practice procedures to produce your product.  With over 20 years of experience working directly on the factory floor I have an extensive understanding of production challenges and successful solutions.

Your unique product starts here!

Every new project starts with and idea that grows into a unique product through the new product development process.  I will be your guide and product engineer through the product design phases needed to realize your idea's potential.
