Our mechanical engineers use the best in 3D modeling software to ensure that the product is designed with correct tolerances, dimensions and object relationships. With this program they can create entire assemblies, see how parts fit and move together, change dimensions as needed and create realistic photo renderings of the design.
We can provide many different levels of prototypes from simple painted 2x4s to highly precise machined parts. Our electrical engineers in particular can create working prototypes quickly using breadboard circuitry and readily available electronics supplies while our mechanical engineers can send their fully designed parts to manufacturers for high-level prototyping.
We use computer simulations to calculate the strength of a part. This process is known as Finite Element Analysis, or FEM. This analysis is used to revise the design or strengthen the design where necessary, or dictate a change of materials for that particular part. Performing this optional service on your product will lessen the chances it will fail due to heavy use.
Products intended to be efficient in air must be analyzed for performance. Our aerodynamicist Richard Romanelli works out of our Milan, Italy office. He has extensive experience in optimizing designs using the CFD tool and has worked with successful European race teams to optimize race car performance. We can analyse any external airflow and help you optimize your design to the maximum desired characteristic which includes extensive experience in the design and analysis of ground and air vehicles whose performance depends on optimum airflow.
