Science, Math and Software
Our team of engineers and mechanical designers utilize their diverse backgrounds from industries including medical devices, tools, personal care, outdoor equipment, toys, child-resistant packaging, furniture, safety equipment, small appliances, scientific/industrial equipment, and others.
Direct knowledge of plastic and metal material properties ensures designs will be successful throughout the lifecycle of the product (material sourcing, manufacturing, distribution, retail sale, consumer use, and disposal).
By using computer simulation tools, our engineering teams are able to computationally evaluate and adjust designs before a single part is fabricated. These simulation tools help accelerate projects by avoiding trial-and-error exercises. Once physical models are made, we have the equipment to physically test the prototypes to affirm the computer simulation models.
We apply scientific principles and years of mechanism and manufacturing experience to every project.
The Creative Mechanisms team is often asked by clients to quickly develop prototypes in order to prove a certain 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 simple and reliable solution.
