Mechanical Engineering

  Truly effective breakthrough product development requires high quality engineering capabilities and services. At PCDworks, we have the team, the technology and the tenacity to take on even the most impossible engineering challenges.

  Our on-site facilities offer a “one stop shop” for all of your engineering and testing needs. With extensive Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering capabilities, we provide a full range of services, including 3D CAD layouts, electronic circuit design, analytical modeling, and multiphysics simulation. Our mechanical engineering department is dedicated to quickly producing strong designs, and performing engineering calculations to verify a concept’s validity.

Capabilities:

Analytical Modeling Analytical models prove a concept’s validity with a relatively low investment, and frequently serve as the starting point for fully engineered designs.

Solid Modeling To turn conceptual designs into full scale solid models, PCDworks uses a SolidWorks based modeling organization, and offers the ability to import and work with almost any format of model.

Multiphysics FEA To take simulation to the next level, we employ COMSOL multiphysics package on concepts and designs that require further modeling before moving into the physical realm. This tool allows us to perform analyses such as:

  • CFD – air and liquids
  • Heat transfer
  • Stress/Strain
  • Vibration and Fatigue

Engineering Disciplines Our engineers are experts at all of the standard ME disciplines:

  • Mechanics
  • Kinematics
  • Structural Analysis
  • Mechatronics
  • Thermo and Fluid Dynamics
  • Material Science

In addition, we have local outsider consultants and have worked in:

  • Vibration
  • Acoustics
  • Surface treatments
  • Tribology
  • Electrohydraulics

Design for Manufacturing Once a design has been proven feasible through prototype design and fabrication, PCDworks leverages its great collective experience in manufacturing and Design for Manufacturing to create strong, cost effective designs, minimizing the time and effort to go from prototype to production units.
