Products, like great ideas, are equal to the amount of work invested. Mechanical Engineering design is key when developing your product. What’s the use of a great product if it breaks easily and provides a negative user experience? Some companies skim by with so-called “virtual prototypes” or non-functional prototypes, which provide only a visual “shell” of the product. These virutal prototypes fail to include necessary engineering and are therefore inadequate preparation for manufacturing. Final products are ready for manufacturing only after all mechanical engineering solutions are complete. At Prototype House, this is a crucial part of our Phase 2 Advanced Modeling and the DFM/DFA Phases. (Design For Manufacturing & Design For Assembly)
Prototype House prides itself on being a startup- and entrepreneur-friendly firm!
Prototype House understands how critical it is to keep resources lean as a start-up and to ensure you’re getting the right services. Our team customizes mechanical engineering design services and packages for self-funded entrepreneurs and investor-funded startups. Our team has designed and engineered for large household names including, Husky, Boch, Office Depot, No Fear, Nick Cannon, Walmart, Target, Bed Bath, Autozone, QVC, and many more. You can rest assured we are bringing real-world experience and a team of experts to every project.
Speaking of Teams Prototype House is a multi-faceted team of experts. Consisting of Product Designers, Engineers, Graphic Designs, Sourcing and Manufacturing Experts. We even have an in house web and multimedia designer!
Your product is created in a collaborative space with you the client and our team of product development experts. New inventions are our specialty! With great collaboration comes greater rewards, we have shorter lead times, spend less time on revisions and tedious changes. You can stand behind our team to provide you with quality parts and product design you can be proud of. We guide our clients through the necessary steps beyond product development for example crowdfunding, obtaining investors, or building your own brand. No matter what road or roads you decide to pursue you will have a team here to help. If you need appearance models, functional prototypes, or even a multi-functional prototype with mechanical and electronic components. We can build it!
Mechanical Engineering also includes Testing & Refinement Before Production
Proof of Concept, FEA and CAD analysis and focus group studies are all fundamental parts of refining and testing your product before it goes into production. Our partners will guide you through all the facets of pre and post production.
What is Engineering Analysis you may ask?
In the vast majority of product design and development projects some analysis is required. It can be stress-strain calculations, heat transfer measurements, or PCB testing, which is being developed. With these checks, weaknesses in materials, appearance, operation and safety can be tested. If any concerns are identified before going into mass production, the product design will be revised and improved. Resolving problems in the design process results in lower costs accumulated during mass production.
What our clients are saying:
“I have been working with Matthew and Francisco, of Prototype House, for the past number of months on developing my product the HyperChiller. They have helped me refine this project from rough sketches to a working prototype, and now on to more mechanical engineering refinements for manufacturing. Their direct investment in their manufacturing facilities is another big plus for anyone hoping to have a trustworthy contact.”
President, Hyperbius, Inc.
“Prototype House helped me bring my product to the market, they were very helpful and knowledgeable about all facets of product development. They have a great client relationship and I recommend them to any business. My products are were produced quickly, with great quality.” –
