PRECISE FITS

Packing so many features into a small package demands a high degree of detail given to tolerance, part stack up, and assembly mechanics. Our engineering team leverages CNC lathe/mill operations to massage billet aluminum alloy into a functional, rugged aesthetic. Using sheet metal bending and integrated Consumer-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) parts, advanced construction methodology was implored to provide significant cost savings during assembly. This streamlined the process and reduced fall-out rates.

DESIGN VALIDATION

Assembly and fit validation is critical in order to pack all these neat features into a workable form factor. Through the use of Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), our design team was able to quickly iterate and improve proposed construction methodology to arrive at the final solution. In addition, ease of use, usability, and ergonomics are critical to this product’s success, which were also tested with the 3D printing process.
