Emerging Technologies

Many of our professional engineering staff began work in the electronics and semiconductor sector. Our skills and experience naturally led to the life sciences and the emerging technologies.

We have worked from sub-system development through entire “clean-sheet” design of new technology equipment or products.

Emerging technology project experience has included; solar product development, solar product manufacturing equipment, solid-state lighting (SSL or LED) products and related manufacturing equipment; energy storage, energy management, superconductivity, smart grid and more.

We work in other industry sectors as well of course, as diverse as warehouse logistics robotics and automation, oil & gas, food processing, and more.

Since 1994 we have provided complete electro-mechanical engineering design services for:
  • Product development for electronic products - concept through prototype
  • Capital Equipment development for semiconductor tools and process equipment
  • Industrial product design for manufacturing test equipment
  • Custom manufacturing equipment for factory automation
  • Custom machine design for automated material handling equipment in areas as diverse as semi fabs and food processing
  • Product development for medical equipment design - conceptualization to prototyping
  • Product development related to the clean energy industry - solar, wind, LEDs, fuel cells...
