Test and manufacture with ease.

Enginuity’s In-house Machine Shop

Having in-house machining capability gives Enginuity the ability to quickly create and iterate prototypes, modify off-the-shelf parts, and produce last-minute tools, jigs, and components for assemblies under change.

Being closely integrated with the mechanical design team on a project allows for design review and changes during manufacture, limiting expense and delays, and ensuring quality and functionality in the delivered product.

Our Machine Shop capabilities include the following:

  • 4-axis CNC milling machine
  • 2-axis CNC lathe
  • Assembly and testing
  • Manual drill presses
  • Manual bench mill
  • 12″ semi-auto cut-off saw
  • Dry shop air throughout
  • Material handling (forklift, mobile gantry, lifting and rigging gear)
  • Pneumatics test bench
  • Wet lab with washdown
  • Hydraulic shop press

Design with the end in mind.

Because no matter the complexity of a project, ultimately, people are going to use it.

Industrial Design is an interdisciplinary design process that bridges the gap between technical engineering aspects of product design and makes sure there’s always someone thinking from the end user’s perspective.

Industrial Design is an integral part of Enginuity’s Design Control Process, and you can learn more about it here. You can also read about how UX is plays a part in Industrial and Engineering Design.

Think your project could benefit greatly from Industrial Design? Don’t hesitate to let us know:

3d printing

Turn your ideas into reality — fast.

Rapid Prototyping at your fingertips: faster run time, higher precision

Enginuity offers in-house rapid prototyping so you don’t have to wait long.

Our capabilities include CNC Machining, 3D Printing, and Injection Molding — everything you need so you don’t have to wait long turnaround times.

Need your design done quickly, creatively, and on budget? Let us know.

Safety and standards come first.

Led by Enginuity’s TÜV® Certified Safety Engineer, one of the only few in Atlantic Canada

Make sure that your design is safe and up to standards.

Our Functional Safety Assessments cover risk analysis, codes, and standards.

If you need help in doing a Functional Safety Assessment, let us know.

Ensure your design won’t fail.

De-risk, optimize, and reduce costs in the process.

 

With Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and other Numerical Analysis methods, you can have confidence that your design is as optimal as it can be.

Our Advanced Simulation Methods allows you to de-risk your project and ensure that your design can endure real loads. By being proactive, you can be rest assured that your design won’t fail.

Our Core Competencies

 

R

Design Validation

including proof of concept and prototype testing, is the cross-disciplinary foundation of our Product Development Process and encompasses product improvement, industrial controls, and industrial design.

R

Detailed Analysis Services

include functional analysis, failure analysis, and all forms of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) – including linear and non-linear materials, static and dynamic, thermal, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and large displacement models.

We also perform real-world testing and design custom test equipment for unique testing challenges, including both non-destructive and fully plastic testing models.

R

Material Analysis and Specification

considers design and optimal materials used – including manufacturing processes, load and lifespan requirements, regulatory and safety implications, suitability for use, end-of-life disposal, and a host of other factors.

Our team is familiar with all common and exotic manufacturing materials.

R

Structural Design

guarantees optimal function and safety of machinery and structures. Sophisticated analysis tools combined with decades of accumulated experience in many fields allow for reliable and efficient structural design.

R

Risk Analysis

with best practices, and staying on top of research, technical reviews, and state-of-the art technologies are always a priority.

R

Fabrication Techniques

include all standard methods of product and structural fabrication. In-house CNC machining and turning as well as 3D printing provide very rapid iterations of ideas and demonstration of fit-for purpose designs.

In addition, a partial list of manufacturing experience on the Enginuity team includes: welding (carbon and stainless steels, aluminum, titanium, polymers), injection molding, casting, forging, stamping, winding, spinning, hydro-forming, composites/FRP and more.

R

Machine Shop

Includes the following equipment:

  • 4-axis CNC milling machine
  • 2-axis CNC lathe
  • Assembly and testing
  • Manual drill presses
  • Manual bench mill
  • 12″ semi-auto cut-off saw
  • Dry shop air throughout
  • Material handling (forklift, mobile gantry, lifting and rigging gear)
  • Pneumatics test bench
  • Wet lab with washdown
  • Hydraulic shop press
R

Design for Manufacturing (DFM)

is the complex series of tasks associated with taking a fully-functioning prototype and making it in volume, including supply chain selection, design optimization, COGS pricing and analysis, first article testing, and packaging design.

R

Safety and Designing to Standard

is led by Enginuity’s TÜV® Certified Safety Engineer, one of only a few in Atlantic Canada, and covers risk analysis, codes, and standards.

R

Subject Matter Experts (SMEs)

are on call to build capacity and meet client needs.

How we Supported our Local Dragon Boat Team with a Dream of Raising Breast Cancer Awareness – July 2022

How we Supported our Local Dragon Boat Team with a Dream of Raising Breast Cancer Awareness – July 2022

Breast cancer deeply impacts not only the patients but also their loved ones, caregivers, and so many more. Having a strong support system who truly knows firsthand what you’re thinking/feeling is empowering and essential to a survivor’s recovery process on a physical, mental, and emotional level. For this reason, we have donated 24 non-slip dragon boat seats to Bosom Buddies so they can paddle over Lake Banook with comfort!
