Essential Job Functions

Our current engineering services include Advanced data collection techniques, Reverse Engineering, Metrology, Training in any of our proficiencies, BIM, Tolerance Stacking Analysis, Design (fixture, gage, and product), Expert Witness support, and others.

Continuous Learning – We employ the most advanced technology and software available. You will need to stay up to speed on many technologies. Since these are new and cutting edge technologies you will be trained in them sequentially. We want each employee to be proficient with each of the technologies we employ and one CAD package. Once trained, you will be given projects in each area periodically to maintain skill levels. Training is done internally by experts in the field. Technologies that are required to be learned include Portable CMMs, Laser Scanning, Structured Light Systems, Fixed CMM, Industrial Computed Tomography (CT), Long Range Laser Scanning, Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) and advanced print interpretation, 1D and 2D measurement tools and the software related to each technology. We are continuously exploring and adding the most advanced technologies.

CAD – Reverse Engineering / Modeling / Drawing Work – You will be assigned a CAD platform to become proficient with. If you already have experience in a CAD platform, it is likely that will be your CAD platform. About 70% of our CAD/Design work is platform neutral. The balance of our work requires a specific CAD platform.

Metrology – We are an ISO 17025 certified inspection source and do perform inspections for our customers to their FAI, PPAP and GR&R requirements.

Customer and Internal Training – We train our customers in any technique that we use. We are also responsible for training our Engineering Co-ops and each other as we gain new methods/techniques.
