We specialize in prototype development - particularly with plastic parts intended for mass production using injection molded processes. While we work well with other materials, our team has a unique expertise in plastics. If your product(s) tend to be injection molded plastics with some functional mechanisms in the design, we are the right fit.
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.
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.
To this end, we have developed a program where we offer an hour of consultation services for $250.00. This is a gut check, but it may save you a considerable amount of money in the end. Most people that engage this program do not go further at our suggestion. If you do decide to continue, however, we will credit the consultation fee back to you.
We can take your verbal description and go from there. We'll ask questions and ensure that we understand what you're looking to accomplish. Once we are sure we've locked down your idea, we'll work on making sure it succeeds. Don't worry about using plain language -- injecting the engineering know-how into your concept is our job!
Put down the mechanical drawing textbooks and just tell us what you have in mind. Let us know the desired end results. We need to understand your constraints and requirements so that we can work around them, but you don't have to be a draftsman to work with us. We are experts at working with anything from back-of-the-napkin sketches to fully exploded views. If you can describe it, we will help you realize it.
Do you have an idea that's presently in development, or one that you're still mulling over? We can provide an independent assessment, let you know what's good, what's bad, and how we can move your idea forward.
Sometimes working with a design firm feels like a crap shoot: will this thing even work? Is the development investment a good idea? Creative Mechanisms strips away the uncertainty by giving you regular glimpses into the process. Narratives, diagrams, and videos are posted to a secure web site for client review and input. There won't be a big surprise at the end of the line, just a big "wow" when the final product is demonstrated for stakeholders.
We never forget that our clients are manufacturers with market-driven, sensitive deadlines. When we take on a project, we take ownership of those deadlines. Your success depends on our responsiveness, and we take your trust in Creative Mechanisms very seriously.
You can feel their internal energy, they are always excited about our projects. When you find a company like Creative Mechanisms, you stay with them. They are a one-stop shop.
Creative Mechanisms is the best at making 'looks-like works-like' prototypes. They have the ability to take your concept and tweak it if needed to make your mechanism, and they do it amazingly fast.
