Make products beautiful from the inside out.
Our engineers take pride in the beauty on the inside of your product, discovering time and again that an elegant solution to a complex problem is gratifying in its own right. The Sundberg-Ferar engineering team applies this mantra and serves to enable innovation. We follow the product development process from the ground floor through to production, helping you determine your organization’s needs and how best to meet your challenges. In early phases, we help brainstorm new solutions and flush out specifications that guide the development towards robust solutions. We later execute and validate, bringing the design from the dream to the table with tool-ready data.
We know it is paramount to break the mold and innovate. Our engineers guide the process, providing a failsafe along the way to keep your design challenge from backing into a corner. We build the foundation for new ideas rooted in manufacturability, performance and optimization. This approach gives you confidence that our designs can be fully manufactured with fewer pre-production iterations, higher overall quality, and with a strategically integrated solution. Above all else, we strive to make the emotional aspects of your design reach your customer without losing its way on the road to production.
Our background is drawn from the rigorous practices of the automotive industry. Expertise in mechanisms, metals, composites, soft goods, electro-mechanical systems, among many others helps provide clients with a broad-scope tool box to pull from. We have a thorough understanding of prototypes and work with our hands wherever possible. We also fundamentally understand the factory floor and the people that work hard to bring products to life. Overall, we provide the core for the technical side of your product development:
- Complex CAD modeling on multiple platforms
- Cost analysis
- Tool design know-how
- DFMA (Design for Manufacturing and Assembly)
- FTA (Fault Tree Analysis)
- FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and multiple types of product simulation
- FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis)
- Physical testing and root cause analysis
- Tolerance studies and quality control methods
- Technical program management and decision making assistance
“When I’m working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.” R. Buckminster Fuller
