Machine Design for the Assembly Line

We work with manufacturers, product designers and businesses to identify and detail out problems and bottlenecks in production and provide engineered solutions.  We then work with you to build real solutions to address the needs.  The best way to describe what we do is that we provide machine design for the assembly line.

We take a consulting role to the next level and finish the job by working with you to build out the solution.  Our team offers competent and professional service.

"We seek to control outcomes by emphasizing and moving towards proactive problem solving."

How can we help?

Process Improvement

Material flow and production flow design (example – Kanban System), waste minimization

Spaghetti diagrams, process flow diagrams, Fishbone diagrams, 5 whys, and other tools

Supporting a Visual Management and a Visual Factory through Design of HMIs / Display of performance to operators (example – Overall Equipment Effectiveness)

Improve operator comfort with Ergonomics / 3D Printing

Technical Documentation – I.E. Quality checklist creation

Traditional engineering support – Drafting, system design, concepting, prototyping

Design and build tools and / or equipment to improve production processes and worker efficiency

Risk Mitigation (Incoming new equipment or existing systems)

Risk Assessments

2nd set of eyes to find pitfalls, improper configurations or headaches.

Specifications review – Identify and head off potential problems

Supporting and facilitating safety reviews and walks

Contract Manufacturing, Production Lines, Production Parts and Sourcing

You don’t have to go it alone.  Let us take your prototype design and build it for you.  You focus on the customer and the value you bring and we will cover the behind the scenes building and logistics of your unique product.  We can design and production machines or design an assembly line for.

Assembly Rework

We can rework, reassemble and test to your standards any product that had supply chain issues.

Reverse Engineering

We can take your design, component or physical product and model it in CAD.  We can diagnose critical function of system, measure document and reverse engineer the design.  Identify shortcomings of current design and incorporate improvements in new design.  Design for manufacturing and design for alternative process capabilities.

Prototyping Parts

We can take your idea and turn it into a proof of concept.

Process Flow Design

Using process improvement tools like value stream mapping and production flow systems, we can help you design, build and fabricate process flow equipment to help with your unique flow line.

Custom Machine Design

We take a concept and bring it to reality with proper design, testing, customer understanding and design for manufacturing expertise.  Take a look at some of the projects we have taken on:


Raw Material Storage Solutions

Custom storage solutions, designed and built.  Use these for items like raw sheetmetal.

Machine Fixtures

Design and fabricate machine fixtures for your assembly needs

3D Printed Tools and Aids

We can 3D print your model or design one for you.  Use these tools to improve ergonomics or speed up production and setups.
