DEVELOPMENT PATHWAY-221222-1.png

We Can Help You

Engineering Design Lab is able to come in at any stage of your project and help you and your team get to the next stage, and beyond. Whether it is a staffing challenge, technical challenge or other issue that is keeping the project from advancing, EDL has the multi-faceted skillset to assess the situation, and create a plan to help make your project a success. Below is a brief description of the various skills we employ for our current clients. Let us know which of our skills you're in need of!

 

Concept and Prototyping

We can help you with defining the requirements and metrics for your project. We work to clearly understand project goals, constraints and assumptions so that the scope of work can be accurately defined. Early-stage design can begin and prototypes can then be quickly built to validate key functionalities.

 

  • Project Strategy

  • Problem Statement Definition

  • Design Specifications

  • Conceptual Design

  • Product Ideation

  • Rapid prototyping Including 3D printing and Low-Fidelity Concepts

Engineering Design & Analysis

Our team’s approach integrates performance, cost, manufacturing, and user experience considerations simultaneously in the development process in order to save time and identify any "pain points" before they occur. A variety of tools including CAD, analysis, and simulation software are applied to achieve your technical goals.

 

  • Detailed Design (SolidWorks, CATIA, AutoCAD, Rhino3d)

  • Engineering Drawings

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

  • Generative Design & Topological Optimization

System Integration

Unlike some of our peers, we can go beyond the design phase to lead the build, commissioning and testing of your project. Our team can assemble your prototype and perform validation and optimization to ensure that all specifications are measured and met.

 

  • Alpha and Beta prototypes

  • Prototype and System Assembly

  • Commissioning

  • Design of Experiments

  • Data Collection and Analysis

  • Process Optimization

  • Durability Testing

Product Launch & Manufacturing

We work with our approved manufacturers to scale up your project to mass production. Leveraging our trusted network of local and overseas suppliers ensures exceptional pricing and quality. We work directly with vendors to iron out all remaining manufacturing details and create tooling. 

 

  • Manufacturing Support

  • Tooling and Mold Design

  • Supplier Networks in Canada, the United States, China and Beyond

  • Management of Supplier Manufacturing Including Machining, Injection Molding, Extrusions Castings, Composite Materials and More

  • Validation of Engineering, Design and Production

  • Quality Control & Quality Assurance (QA/QC)

  • Root cause Analysis of Product Defects

Client Testimonial:

Tomek is an excellent multi-disciplinary design engineer. When I had a chance to work with him on our Eta Speedbike project, he was able to come in and quickly understand many of the the unique challenges of our project. He worked in a flexible manner, integrated well with existing team and provided top notch engineering and test support during our world record project. Tomek was able to solve a variety of the challenges we encountered quickly and carefully, applying his knowledge and expertise to supplement that of our team in some crucial areas. He developed creative solutions to hard-to-define problems and managed his projects through to completion. In addition, he was a valuable asset during the testing and competition phases of the project.

I would highly recommend him for his unique and versatile engineering expertise.
