Creative Mechanisms has product development solutions that will make your engineering prototypes more efficient and come to life. Our highly-trained product design engineers use a combination of science, math, software and Design for Excellence strategies to look at materials in an outside-the-box manner to determine the best way to implement them into an innovative new product.
Construction of any engineering prototype requires knowledge in the field of engineering. For the product to be functional and innovative, every aspect must be correctly calculated to ensure that the prototype has no defects and can withstand a long run of usage without failure. That is where our advanced engineering department comes into play. When designing your engineering prototype, our engineers run everything through highly-advanced software programs and tirelessly measure every variable that goes into your product. The final result is a unique solution that puts your product ahead of the competition and increases efficiency in all areas.
Our team of product design engineers and mechanical designers possess diverse experience when it comes to medical devices, tools, personal care, outdoor equipment, toys, child-resistant packaging, furniture, safety equipment, small appliances, scientific/industrial equipment, and more.
Direct knowledge of plastic and metal material properties ensures industrial design prototypes will be successful throughout the lifecycle of the product (material sourcing, manufacturing, distribution, retail sales, consumer use, and disposal).
Using computer simulation tools, our engineers computationally evaluate and adjust industrial design prototypes before a single part is fabricated. These simulation tools help accelerate projects by avoiding trial-and-error exercises. Once physical models are made, we physically test the prototypes to affirm the computer simulation models.
If you are looking for a better way to bring your product through the manufacturing process, you can rely on Creative Mechanisms. We can help you do what you may have thought was impossible through the power of prototyping, engineering and technology. There is no limit on what our engineers can do with their scientific and operational expertise.
We apply scientific principles as well as years of mechanism and engineering for manufacturing experience to every project, including those involving child-resistant packaging. In the video at the bottom of the page, our engineers explain how they machined polypropylene into living hinges, a feat that other companies have not been able to accomplish. Watch the video below to learn more about engineering prototypes and how we use them in our projects.

The Creative Mechanisms team is often asked by clients to quickly develop engineering prototypes in order to prove a particular concept or justify a project’s validity.
One of our clients approached us, looking for a breadboard model that could hold 100 small square tiles and dispense them four at a time.
The success of this project was a result of the cooperative effort of the Creative Mechanisms team. The tight deadline forced us to work together towards a reliable and straightforward solution.
