Design & Development

As the adage goes; Necessity is the mother of invention, but in today’s competitive environment having an idea is only the beginning. There are many hurdles in getting a product to the marketplace. Unfortunately for this reason, many great ideas never end up being more than ideas.

Our years of experience in custom equipment design and manufacturing have given us the skills necessary to work as a third party resource to help customers take an idea for a product or component, to a tangible part or assembly. These tangible items or drawings can be used to help secure project funding, or be used when filing for a design patent. Whatever your need may be IMS has the skills and resources to help you achieve your goals.

Our design and development services include, but are not limited to:

  • Concept Finalization – Helping the customer refine their product design
  • Mechanical Drafting (CAD) – Creating a 2D Blueprint of a specific component or assemblies
  • Reverse Engineering – Breaking down of an existing part or component, generally for rework or product improvement
  • Physical Prototyping – Building a sample, model or one-off production unit
  • Small Scale Production & Assembly – Assembly of the finished product or component on a limited production scale.
  • Mass Production Integration- Helping the customer source the right vendor for mass assembly & packaging

Below are a few examples of our various design and development projects, in which we have taken a simple idea to a drawing or in some cases a tangible component.

  • Planter Chassis Concept
  • Coal Burning Stove Concept
  • Pump Handle Concept
