Program Information



Industrial Designers
 
Conceptual Study
Our team provides an academic approach to the design process, informed by their expert knowledge of industrial needs as well as by the individual specifications of the project underway.  At this stage we take a systematic approach to launching an idea, incorporating a highly effective “6 thinking-hat” decision-making process while taking into account all factors from ergonomic needs to current market trends.

Ergonomics
Integrating the relevant aspects of human biology and psychology with their expert knowledge of engineering and design, all R&R projects aim to optimize a product’s performance while simultaneously protecting the health, safety, comfort, and well-being of the targeted end-user.

Photo Realistic Rendering
Once the best concept has been selected, it is systematically evaluated, beginning with the creation of a CAD file, for both rendering and engineering purposes. Both stages generally run in parallel, to most efficiently establish the final manufacturable and cost-effective product. Depending on the project, a variety of concepts may be rendered for presentation purposes.


Graphic Designers
Our graphic design team is well-equipped with state-of-the-art technology and expertise to create the most effective graphics for product enhancement as well as for marketing purposes. If desired by the client, fully photorealistic-rendered animation with audio and visual effects may be created to demonstrate and further evaluate the conceptual products suggested. Animation
If necessary to perfect the ergonomic design of a product, ensuring optimal human interaction with the emerging equipment, our animation experts can render moving graphics to enhance a product’s industrial design. Animation can include full audio-visual effects for demonstrations including fly-throughs and turntable layouts.

Mechanical Engineers

We need people who know proE software.  This is a requirement for this position.

Design Refinement
After the research stage, we start our conceptual work given our clear assessment of the fundamentals of the project’s technical requirements. Utilizing everything from old-school pencils and markers to high-end digital touch-pads, we create sketches using state-of-the-art Wacom Tablets, brainstorming and free-associating to create as many sketches as needed internally until presenting to the client the best and final concepts. In this stage we define functions, choose appropriate physical effects as working principles for the given functions, consider the major form parameters linked to the effect, and sketch principle solutions.

Assembly
Dedicated manufacturing facilities allow a rapid transition from inspirational concept to real-world prototype once a product idea has been designed and engineered.

Bill of Materials
As the product design emerges, our Project Manager uses the now well-informed assessment of product specifications to present to the client a detailed list of all the materials, sub-assemblies, intermediate assemblies, sub-components, components, and parts that will be needed for the manufacture of the final product.

Finite Element Analysis
Using mathematical techniques to break down a physical structure into substructures or "finite elements," interrelationships are then converted into equation form to mathematically analyze and solve mechanical issues such as stress resistance and displacement while minimizing weight and expense.

 


Electrical Engineers

PCB Design
A printed circuit board, or PCB, is used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways, tracks or signal traces etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. This highly reliable approach is also considerably less expensive than traditional circuit engineering methods.

System Control
We can perform all necessary Electromagnetic Compatibility, Environmental, and Electrical Test Services. From connectors and the smallest electronic components to trucks and construction equipment, we have the expertise to handle the broadest range of product testing.

Signal Processing
We bring years of electrical engineering expertise to the processing of electrical representations (analog or digital) of time-varying or spatial-varying physical quantities, or signals, vital to the design of complex components.
