Porticos is a full service product design and development firm with a passion for developing new products with creative design solutions, expert mechanical engineering techniques, and patented new technologies and strategies. Although product development is creative, it also requires a disciplined, systematic approach to guide the processes that are required to get a new product from an idea to a marketable product.
At Porticos we specialize in designing medical, consumer electronic, military, energy and industrial electronic products with an emphasis on innovative, small, rugged and cost effective designs which means our engineers have extensive experience in designing products for some of the most demanding environments. We have a strong track record and experience in delivering quality mechanical solutions for high-tech products.
Identifying design criteria, analyzing potential solutions, generating concepts and prototyping are all integral parts of our product development process. Through this methodology we ensure our designs and concepts have passed muster, make business sense and have offer excellent value. Industrial design surfaces and conceptual layouts are used as the basis for the creation of detailed parametric 3D solid models (NX, CREO or Solidworks). Design for Manufacturing (DFM) and Design for Assembly (DFA) input is incorporated to ensure that the models are inclusive of manufacturing features and can be manufactured.
Porticos engineers have undergraduate and advanced degrees in physics, mechanical, aerospace and quality engineering; including registered professional engineers and a six sigma black belt. With these capabilities in house, our clients save time and money in getting to market. You won’t waste valuable time interfacing between a design house, engineering company, prototype shop and factory. Our expert project managers take the hassle and confusion out of product development with our integrated approach. With design and engineering expertise in a variety of industries, we approach all projects from a functionality, cost/manufacturability and consumer appeal standpoint.
