Product Engineering Company

Manufacturing Heritage

Product Engineering – With Insight.

Successful product development efforts require world-class Product Engineering execution in addition to beautiful Industrial Design and consistent Manufacturing Management. Product engineering at SGW Designworks focuses on building specific functionality into new products, while balancing cost targets with durability and elegance. Our track record shows that our development engineers have what it takes to fully develop complex mechanisms, housings, and embedded electronics. Our engineering team has direct and relevant experience in sporting goods design, mobile equipment engineering, consumer product engineering, firearms engineering, industrial product design, home appliance development, smart device engineering, IoT development, and industrial product engineering. Our breadth of experience enables us to apply unique engineering knowledge from multiple fields to every product engineering challenge in front of us.

All of our projects begin with a conversation. Contact Us today, and we will work together to define a plan to engineer your product – with insight.

ENGINEERING BREADTH.

We work on manufactured products in any industry. Our projects often include enclosure development, mechanism engineering, mechanics, embedded systems development, PCBA design and layout, firmware development, and engineering for durability in specific applications. We have brought significant value to clients developing products that range from innovative firearms to cutting edge VR equipment. Our engineering team will bring a new perspective to your project.

LEAN DEVELOPMENT APPROACH.

The product engineering and prototype development process can be complex. We use a proven product development process, typically starting with a Phase 0 project to answer initial questions about the project that will define all subsequent development phases. We apply Lean Principles to development projects, similar to those defined in The Lean Startup by Eric Ries, which means every prototype serves a purpose and provides critical findings for iterative development.

COMPLETE PRODUCT ENGINEERING.

As your product engineering company, we act as an engineering department focused on development of your new product. Our engineering team carries projects from the early phases of feasibility study and specification development, through concept development, initial engineering, design iteration, prototype development, design freeze, engineering optimization, design finalization, design for manufacturer, and manufacturer engagement. From start to finish, we have you covered.
