Creative Mechanisms is an independent engineering firm specializing in custom solutions to mechanical design projects. We develop prototype mechanisms as simple as a living hinge and as complex as the limits of your imagination. We are a good fit for companies seeking engineering expertise and looking to develop mechanisms they can reliably bring to market at scale.
Our ability to design, develop, and demonstrate innovative mechanisms can provide your business with a significant competitive advantage. We react fast to customer feedback, efficiently test your innovations, and bring creative solutions to market more quickly and for less money.
After thinking there was no way to develop and prototype living hinges, Creative Mechanisms were recommended to me. I quickly learned they offer a rare and sought after service, ideal for any early stage prototyping through to production level injection molding. They were hands down the best external contractor I can recall working with. From their highly effective "BaseCamp" communication tool to keep me updated on their entire design process, CAD files, images and videos, to their unparalleled turn around time, I cannot recommend Michael and his team highly enough. I found it extremely refreshing to consult with a company that exceeded all of my expectations and delivered impressively high quality prototypes in a very short time frame. From the moment I engaged them, Creative provided me with a very transparent and honest service; I had full visibility into the work that was agreed upon and what Michael and his team were working on. I will, without a doubt, be coming back to Creative Mechanisms for any future prototyping of this nature, and pushing for my colleagues to do the same!
We often get requests from entrepreneurial inventors who have an idea that they want to commercialize. We have a lot of experience in the invention field. We have licensed products and have brought several to market independently. We know how hard it is. We would love to share this experience with you.
We work well with larger firms whose engineering and/or corporate headquarters are set up to do business in the United States. If you're a market driven company that needs to manufacture high volumes of product, consider working with our team to develop and finalize prototypes that will be hassle-free in production.
