While we would love to work on all the projects that come our way, the realities of running a competitive business make it hard to be efficient on smaller programs. We find that we have the best success with customers whose budgets are somewhere between the price of a used Honda and a new Ferrari (or two). For customers whose budgets are less, one option is to contact your local engineering college and engage a group of students – it will be a great experience for them, and less upfront cost for you.
Another option is Pipeline Academy, a new program developed by Pipeline Design & Engineering that will allow participants to learn the skills of a mechanical designer themselves, or engage a group of designers-in-training at a much lower cost than engaging Pipeline’s senior engineering staff.
“I have been working closely with Pipeline for over a year on a new product line for my company. During this time they have been able to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of an earlier preliminary design to make it more desirable to consumers and more manufacturable. And Pipeline is a pleasure to deal with- they are honest, timely, thoughtful, thorough and creative.”
“Our company's New Product Development ,R&D, and Advanced Operations groups have been working with Pipeline Design & Engineering for several years on projects ranging from simple test fixtures to automated, micro-controlled kinematic test stands. Pipeline has also managed and executed the 3D scanning, design intent modeling and drawing package creation of complex surgical devices. They have consistently proven themselves to be responsive, reliable, and highly competent strategic partners. The level of quality and creativity present in their work has been exceptionally high and has led to successful project execution and a reduced time to market for our Company’s products. Pipeline’s staff is a very pleasant and professional group of individuals with which to work. I wholeheartedly recommend Pipeline Design & Engineering to any group in need of design and/or engineering services.”
Dual Power Bicycles has employed the services of Pipeline Design and Engineering on a continuous basis for the past three years. Their ability to leverage 3D computer-aided design is excellent; this permitted Pipeline to overcome the substantial technical challenges required to develop this bicycle. Beyond just the design and engineering, Pipeline made seamless the process of coordinating with vendors to produce custom machined components, performing complex assembly work, and testing and troubleshooting the various designs during the development process. In short, I highly recommend Pipeline’s services in product design and prototyping to any interested party.”
“Aquatech has been working closely with Pipeline Design & Engineering since 2014. During that time Pipeline has produced a large and incredibly compelling set of photorealistic renderings of our products for us to use in our website and marketing literature. They have also been instrumental in developing a wide array of new devices that we have been able to offer our customers, helping us to expand our product line and grow the business. Working with Pipeline has been a simple and enjoyable process; they quickly understand our needs and execute their work with tremendous integrity and competence. We look forward to working together with Pipeline for many years to come.”
