Mechanical Design & Engineering Services are going to play a critical role in bringing your product to market. For more info visit:
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
Design validation techniques include Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Depending upon your product's requirements FEA techniques are used. Conducting FEA enables engineers to solve complex design problems before creating expensive, labor intensive prototypes. Your result, robust working products that cost less and move to market faster.
2D CAD Drawings
2D drawings are used to communicate detail, tolerances and critical dimensions for designs. We draft 2D detailed drawings for use in prototype building, tooling, manufacturing and assembly. These drawings provide precise specifications of the mechanical components, as well as how these components are integrated together in a larger system.
Proof of Concepts
A Proof of Concept is a real world model of your design that demonstrates key operational functions. An engineering proof of concept is a prototype that illustrates the overall functionality of the product with respect to its mechanical functions, but not final appearance. It usually illustrates the different moving mechanisms of the product using 3D printed or off-the-shelf parts.
Pilot Building with Cast Urethanes
When you need more than one or two parts, but not hundreds or thousands, cast urethane molds are a worthy solution. These molds can be used to produce up to about 20 pieces per mold, and are available in either hard or soft materials.
Enclosures, Chassis & Boxes
The expert product design team at Focus Product Design can handle anything from a simple sheet metal box to a complex 19-inch rackmount chassis ranging from 1U to full racks. Our engineers have worked on multiple programs where multiple chassis were designed sharing common parts.
Over the years, many companies change CAD packages, and there is a need to have old designs brought into the latest CAD software. We have a Drawing Conversions team that specializes in quickly converting old legacy 2D drawings into 3D models, as well as recreating part files in a different CAD software.
Small Form Factor Design
Focus has been creating devices of small form factor for more than a decade. Our engineers use design for small form factor to create products of miniature formats, such as medical devices and electronic parts, and any format worn discretely on the body, such as rings, bracelets, earphones etc.
Outside Design and DFx Review
Have our team take an outside look at a current design before it goes into production.
The expert product design team at Focus has solved many challenging EMI solutions, including: PCB level relaying out PCB, adding cans to parts of circuitry, coatings on plastic components, sizing of holes, adding contact points, finger stock and foam gasketing as required in sheet metal chassis.
Engineering Change Order Management
The expert product design team at Focus can handle your cumbersome Engineering Change Order (ECO) management process. We will set up a program once redlined drawings are submitted, update both 3D and 2D files, and fill in all required internal documentation.
Cost Reduction Projects
The two easiest ways to reduce product cost is to consolidate parts or change a manufacturing process. One example may be to convert two machined parts into one die-cast component. We have extensive experience in cost reduction saving on average 30–60%. What can Focus Product Design do for your product costs?
Modular Product Design
Modular designs are designed to share common parts across a product line or platform. We have performed Modular Product Design for many product lines, which required the product to share as many components as possible to gain economies of scale and lower overall costs of goods.
Over Molded & Insert Molded Parts
Our Over Molded and Insert Molded Parts services includes soft over molded handles and components or completely assembled insert molded into hard or soft materials.
A plastic enclosure is used to house internal systems, add structure and improve appearance of a product. Plastic's features include light weight, very low conductivity, and flexible design capability. Plastic enclosures of standard sizes can be purchased from distributors for assembly.
Our mechanical engineers have decades of experience in Silicon Valley and a breadth of knowledge that spans most major industries. Focus is experienced with levers, cams, fluid flow, magnetic valves, motor sizing, torque amplification and reduction, pumps (peristaltic, gear, vane), check valves and electronic fluid switches.
