At SolidMasters, we are prepared to assist you during any phase of the development process. We are perfectly comfortable developing new ideas from scratch or modifying an existing product for a more efficient and cost effective design. We specialize in product incubation and design consulting. With over 21 years of experience, we have the knowledge to bring new ideas to life. 

At SolidMasters, we value innovation. That is why we strive to protect your ideas and save you the hassle of litigation. Every project begins with a non disclosure agreement as well as a patent inquiry in order to protect your idea and avoid product infringement. Thereafter, the project moves to the development phase.

Product development is an extremely involved process. Describing and rendering a thought as a physical model correctly takes a combination of precise skill and knowledge.  At SolidMasters, we strive to make this process easier for you. Our teams of engineers work hand-in-hand with your staff to develop products to meet your specifications. We are a boutique engineering firm which ensures you get the full attention of our entire team. Our CEO, Fred Vierheller, oversees every project and is standing by to assist you.

In cooperation with the inventor or firm, our engineers and designers will rearrange or substitute components to produce a more efficient design. In reality, a functional design will normally improve appearance, reduce manufacturing costs and make the product easier to maintain. The essence of good design is simplicity.  The objective is to build a product that is safe, reliable and cost effective.

Product development involves much more than shape and appearance. The development team must anticipate the problems that the production engineer will find as the product is manufactured. Beginning with the end in mind allows us to anticipating budgetary and timeline concerns that typically complicate the product development process. Give us a call to get started; our engineering team is standing by.

How To Explain The Options You Have

There are a number of different options that you have available when you look at production design and design for manufacturing. The first option that most people look at is to complete these designs themselves. While this can be the most common and logical of the options to use it is also the hardest because you have to consider all of the aspects of manufacturing.

A second option that you need to look at is hiring a consulting firm to help. The consulting firm will be able to create a plan for you and then help implement it. When you use a firm you can be fairly sure that you are going to have the best plan for your product.

Product design and design for manufacturing are two things that inventors need to think about. This is due to the fact that product design commonly leads to manufacturing and you need to know how to plan this. Of course there are people who will be able to help you with this part of your product creation.
