Reverse Engineering

If you have an existing product that contains obsolete components or is otherwise no longer unmanufacturable, we can reverse engineer the product to provide specifications, a partial redesign, or a completely updated design.

Existing Product Optimization

We can analyze the design of your existing product to find areas where materials costs can be reduced and manufacturing processes can be made more efficient. Our goals are: increased profit margin on existing products, streamlining and cost reduction of manufacturing, increased production yields and increased production capacity due to increased yields.
