Design and Development
Product Design is where we use our creativity and innovative
engineering skills to design a product. Our designs
start out very simple and only get more complicated
if absolutely necessary. This philosophy of design
builds quality into a product by keeping the number
of parts down, which reduces the number of potential
quality issues and reduces cost. We design all
our products using SolidWorks© CAD software. We can import DXF, DWG, Parasolid,
IGES, STEP, ACIS, VDAFS, VRML, STL, Catia Graphics,
ProE, UGII, Inventor Part, Solid Edge Part, and
CADKEY parts. We can export Parasolid, IGES, STEP
AP203, STEP AP214, ACIS, VDAFS, VRML, STL, eDrawing,
Catia Graphics, ProE, JPEG, RealityWave ZGL, HCG,
HOOPS HSF, PDF, and TIF.
Development is where we start with ideas and use thorough engineering
practices to turn those ideas into high quality,
manufacturable, profitable products. The founder
of ATech Designs, Inc. uses a German style of engineering. This style
consists of refining designs or perfecting things
that currently work well and applying advanced
technology, where needed, to design new concepts
to fit a market need or to solve a problem. Our
goal is not to reinvent the wheel, but to combine
what already works with wheels with new technology
to design the best wheel. We also work hard to
design quality into our products and we always
keep manufacturing in mind when we design a product.
We make tolerances as loose as possible and we
utilize current known consistent manufacturing
techniques to create a product that is very capable
of being manufactured to specification. This is
commonly referred to as Design For Manufacturing
and Assembly or DFMA.
Inventors may submit ideas to us using our Entry Agreement. We will then review the idea with our board of advisors and designers. We will also perform an initial patent search and market analysis to see if the design is patentable and to see if someone else has already thought of the idea. If we like the idea and find that it is unigue and novel, then we will either ask you to sign a License Agreement or a Representation Agreement. The License Agreement will be used if ATech Designs, Inc. desides to manufacture and/or sell the product. The Representation Agreement will be used if we represent you to one our client companies to manufacture and/or sell your product.
We can also do
the idea generation and conceptual brainstorming for you. If you come up
with the problem, then ATech Designs, Inc. will come up with the ideas and
product concepts to solve the problem or market
need. Our Think-Tank Team consists of a diverse
group of people that pool ideas together.
ATech Designs, Inc. then follows FDA/GMP/ISO standards to
manage an entire
project or small portions of a development project.
We take pride in providing complete thorough documentation
for all our roducts. Each design history file
is organized so that someone unfamiliar with the
product can understand the product and the complete
development process. We work with narrow or broad
cross-functional teams and provide updates on
the project progress on a regular basis.
