Enginuity’s story began the same way that Atlantic Canada has developed into becoming a region with world-class ocean capabilities – with Ben Garvey, Founder and President, growing up on and around boats. From those first projects working on towed sonar arrays, winches and launch and retrieval systems, to today where we are putting robots on boats and designing in-ocean communications devices, we’ve always had an affinity for designing for the Marine Environment.
“I think there’s nothing we can’t do. If you give us time and budget, we have the people to really dig into any problem and figure it out. It’s a very talented group, and we have a very broad skill set. I really, firmly believe that not even the sky is the limit – I think we could probably design a rocket and shoot it off to space. As long as it’s physically possible, we’ll find a design that works.”
User experience (UX) design has become quite prevalent in the world of product development. Despite its recent popularity there is still much confusion as to what it actually is. So, where is all the confusion coming from? And where does it actually fall among the many terms attempting to define specific design fields? Better yet, how does UX design work within engineering?
Introducing marine connectors that will make launch and retrieval for marine assets faster, safer, and more discreet: SEA-Lift and SEA-Snap.
The SEA-Lift is a rapidly deployed, high-load dynamic lifting connector, while the SEA-Snap is a single-handed, high-load refined marine carabiner for offshore use, both designed for harsh marine environments.
Whether you’re installing a pre-lay for a MODU, a new spread for an offloading system, installing a tidal turbine, or exploring offshore wind, SEA-Stab from Enginuity offers simple, cost-effective, and rapid connection — one that connects in seconds and stays for life.
No matter the complexity of an engineering project, ultimately people are going to use it. Thinking about carrying, gripping, pushing buttons, reading screens; this is where Industrial Design hits Enginuity’s Design Control Process.
Enginuity will be exhibiting at the eagerly-awaited Maritime & Arctic Security & Safety Conference (MASS20), hosted (Virtually) by the Atlantic Canada Aerospace & Defense Association (ACADA), this. Nov 3-4, 2020. In this event, we will be showcasing our Aerospace and Defense Capabilities.
IMO Foods in Yarmouth, NS has streamlined the packaging process of their popular
Kersen Canned Fish, using
Enginuity’s Robotics & Automation Team,
capturing all that is Industry 4.0.
With Enginuity’s Can Conveyance and Palletizing system, IMO can now double their production length to meet market demand with this food automation solution.
When I asked Ben Garvey how he came up with the idea to start a company like Enginuity, he had a simple answer — he didn’t. It wasn’t a single idea that started it; but rather a string of events brought upon by curiosity, and the desire to answer needs beyond the problems that preceded them. Much like its inception, this is still what Enginuity stands for today: an innovative, creative, and holistic approach to Engineering.
My phone is ringing off the hook these days, and everybody’s pretty much asking the same question: “I want to get back to making my widgets/designing my product etc., but it’s got to be a bit different. Can you help?”
