Engineering Services


A key element of the product development process is engineering.At this stage it is determined how the product will be manufactured, assembled and how it will achieve its function without sacrificing aesthetics, cost, safety, quality, durability, or reliability.

Depending on the client’s needs, RedOwl can provide any of the following engineering design services:

DFMA (Design for
Manufacturability & Assembly)

DFM (Design for Manufacturability) and DFA (Design for Assembly) techniques are used to narrow down what kind of material and process will be used to create the part. Some examples of these are:

  • Injection Moulding
  • Blow Moulding
  • Die Casting
  • Metal Fabrication (including sheet metal fabrication)
  • Vacuum Forming
  • Extrusion
  • CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled)
  • Machining
  • 3D printing
  • Woodworking

Simulation Analysis using FEA
(Finite Element Analysis)

FEA and Simulation analysis is used to test parts or assemblies in CAD using real-world conditions (simulated forces) before any real-material (physical) parts are made. This saves time and money by helping designers make informed decisions on structure or material before expensive tooling is purchased and design changes become increasingly expensive and time consuming.

Engineering Drawings for Prototype,
Quote, or Manufacturing

More and more manufacturers are working off 3D models to fabricate products, however engineering drawings are still very important to help explain exactly what is required (i.e. material, finish, critical dimensions, etc.)

RedOwl has the ability and expertise to create engineering drawings for prototyping, quoting or manufacturing (production) purposes.

Sourcing and Supplier

RedOwl’s designers will help the client source reliable suppliers for any outsourced parts. They will also handle evaluating the supplier and evaluating sample parts (first-offs.)

Advanced Prototyping
and testing

RedOwl will coordinate the design and production of a real-material prototype (3D printed or machined depending on the application)

RedOwl will coordinate the testing (to relevant standards) of a prototype or first-off production part (internal or supplier) and evaluate the results to determine any necessary design changes or improvements.
